Bad bad girl!!

Yeah, I'm really a bad girl for not writing for so long ... but I've been busy!
Look what I made:

I think they can be considered "nano" bears because micro is not enough!
They are just 10mm tall and full jointed.
This means that they can move the head, arms and legs!
I do not use a magnifyier but I think that probably I need new glasses!
Hmmm ... it's not the age (I still feel 25 in my heart) but probably the fact that I work late at night under the light of a lamp! And what about the fact that I'm mad enough to make such mini things?
BTW when I have to relax my eyesight I make mini blankets, mini baskets and mini purses:

... that, of course, I have to fill with something.
And here is the "something" for the pink bag:

And the something for the yellow one:

... and yes, lately I'm in the bear mood!

  12. Your work is just plain mind boggling! To make them that tiny is wild enough, but fully articulated?!?! Wow!

  13. Ciao Caterina, io abito vicino a Milano, in una casa dietro ad un bosco che è anche riserva naturale. Sarà per questo che sono così ispirata?
    I crampi mi vengono non per farli così piccoli ma per tenerli in mano mentre lavoro!!

  14. Kristy, thank you! We should plan another swap, I'm in need of one of your possums!!

  15. Laura, Maria, Lisette and Maria ... thank you so much!!
