Ferdinand and AnnaBelle

Ferdinand the little bull, was a custom order for a wonderful collector.  I just wanted to share him with you before he leaves for his new home in Sweden to join his little friend, AnnaBelle.

Panini, the tiny Kitten

As you probably already know, I am a cat lover.  I love dogs too... and horses, but this is the story of Panini.

Panini is my little shadow, he needs to be near me, ALL. the. time, and I love having him around, he is so cute, and clever, and lovable.  

Then there's Napoleon,  a really, really big, black cat, with a kind heart and very little courage to stand up for himself.    

Panini biggest pleasure in life is to bully Napoleon where ever and when ever he gets the opportunity. I always have to be on the alert to keep Napoleon safe and because of this, Napoleon now has the alone privilege to live in my studio.  

Panini does not approve at all, HE wants to be the studio kitten.  So, to make it a bit easier on him, we installed a glass door to the studio, so that he can at least see me and feel part of  the daily activities here at AutumnWood Bear studios.

Poor, neglected Panini sits in front of the glass door and calls for me all day long.  Have you ever heard a cat says 'mama' in his sweetest, innocent voice?  It melts your heart. 

This is my artistic rendition of my dear Panini,  a tiny 4" fluffy kitten made of  soft grey faux fur.  He has hand painted glass eyes and a long fluffy tail.

This little Panini is currently available for adoption,  the real Panini will stay with his 'mama' forever.

Willow - Preview Bear for Online Show

I would like to share my little bear, Willow, with you today. She is my preview bear for the 'Who is Who in Bear Making' online show which will take place January 24 - 26, 2014. Willow is approximately 4" tall and  is made of grey and white faux fur. I have hand painted her glass eyes in a beautiful grey-ish-blue with some blue and green reflective sparkles that catch and play with the light.

I am not allowed to show any of the other AutumnWood bears that will be available for adoption, before the start of the show, but there will be two, or maybe three, other little friends, ranging from three to four inches, in light brow and grey fur. 

If you have time, please visit the 'Who is Who in Bear Making' page and vote for your favorite bear. There are many wonderful bears on the preview page from bear artists all over the world and I am sure there will be a bear just for you. 

This is the link to cast your vote: Who is Who in Bear Making Online Show

Willow will be available for adoption, together with her little AutumnWood Bear friends, on January 24th, directly from the show page.    If you like Willow, please visit her on the online show page, she would appreciate your vote ;) 
Hugs, Delane

Winter Storms and Little Bears

We had ice and snow storm warnings this past week.  With temperatures of minus 26 degrees Celsius and lower, I was so thankful that I did not have to leave the house.  Together with my two puppies and  five kitty cats, we snuggled up in front of the fireplace here in my cozy studio and sewed sweet little bears.

This is Pooty, she is a real little chatterbox and shared her ideas of beary cuteness with me all week long.
Poosty is now available for adoption to a loving home.
