Great News!

Just time to post the wonderful news that my little 3" bear; "Horatia", has received a Judges' Choice award in the 2013 Excellence in Bear Artistry Awards! I am very honoured to have been considered by the judges, and I'd like to thank them ever so much! :0)

Here she is:-

I was inspired by the story I came across, of Horatio Nelson's daughter (she was named after him), who had to flee her mother's debtors in France dressed as a boy. I've used some integral clothing in the long pile Upholstery Velvet, and she wears antique lace as a ruffle collar, and gathered around the wrists. She has a grey silk sash around the top of her "breeches", and carries a tiny silk reticule.
I shall be bringing her with me to Hugglets next sunday; so I hope she can meet lots of new people there!
