Somber found a new home :)

Thanks everyone for your interest in Somber: I think he had one of those awkward auctions where everyone plans to bid at the last second and everyone misses it! Thankfully a lovely lady who first met him at Hugglets contacted me as soon as his auction ended without that reserve being met, and made an offer for him, so I am happy to announce that he is going to a new home here in England.

In other news, I ordered some of my favourite mohair dyes from America this weekend, I can't wait for them to arrive :D I got lots of lovely browns and oranges for my next hare and for future squirrels. I really want to have one finished in time for Mad March Hare month but of course I have to wait until the dye arrives now (I have a piece of Alpaca with 'Dye Me' written all over it...). I am also starting to work on a baby hare pattern which I think will be closer to the proportions of the beatrix Potter rabbits: shorter legs and arms, tubby belly and all. Hopefully I will also have Jack's outfit finished soon and will be able to show off his outfit!

Thanks for reading,

Somber needs a new home!

Hi all :)

To celebrate the arrival of Jack I have decided to part with another much loved Sloth from my gang. Somber was also at Hugglets with me, but he didn't find his new home there despite being much admired. I love his Eeyore-like face, so I had no problem keeping him around for a while, but now it is time for him to move on (I'm back at home after finishing University and my Mum says I have too many and I'm not meant to be keeping them in her house! :P)

His auction is here and it ends on Sunday at 8pm GMT. As always I have set the reserve at just under the average price attained for these smaller guys: his is set at about £100 I think. Please go and say Hi to him! We need him to cheer up!

Thanks a lot,
