        We just wrapped up our interview with Teresa Perleberg of Bear Creek Designs & Felting. We instantly fell in love with Teresa’s needle felted sculptures, and just knew we wanted to feature her in our “Artist Spotlight”. One of the things we found most intriguing about her work, aside from the beautiful sculptures themselves, was the process. Teresa lives on a farm and raises sheep, and uses the wool from her own sheep to create her wool roving and then create her sculptures. We just love the fact that they are entirely homemade, right down to the original material from the sheep! And her work is just gorgeous! The details are amazing, and her photography of each piece is also beautiful! We think you’ll really enjoy her work, and invite you to read her whole interview!

        Pearl is the second in our Four Seasons Doll Collection. It took us a lot longer to finish her than we had hoped, but we had many unexpected interruptions. We are hopeful that the next two dolls in this series will come out a lot quicker!!

We are also offering a $3 off discount code for Pearl, available now until Thursday, March 6th! The code is to be used at Etsy (see link above) and it is: 3OFFPEARL
So go check her out now if you want to get in on this great deal!

So what’s next? Well, we are going to be working on developing a newsletter, and a free pattern to accompany it! And of course we also will be starting on the next doll: the autumn doll.

AND, we also have exciting news: We will be starting a new collection of patterns… Dog breeds!! We’ve gotten a couple of requests from friends online who run foster homes for certain breeds. And it is an idea we have been thinking of even before that. So it’s time to start! And first up? A dachshund and a basset hound! :)

Well that’s all the news for now,
Happy sewing!
