Miss Betty Bee

 
Oh My!! Has it really been that long? I think it's safe to say that one lost ones mojo! :) I'm not sure what happened really... I have a tendency to want to hibernate every now and then, especially in the dark winter months...
 
Anyways, I am back in fighting form, with lots to share! So without further ado.... please meet Miss Betty Bee!
 
 
 
Little Betty has been floating about in my head for ages.... I originally sketched her months ago and was always gathering the materials and the bits n' pieces I would need for her, then all of a sudden, perhaps two weeks ago, I just HAD to make her!!
 
My original sketch for Miss Betty Bee...
It usually happens that way for me, a particular idea will stick in my mind  I'll mull it over and think of nothing else... So as inspiration hit, I quickly pulled out the stash of yellow and black that I had gathered and got to stitchin'!
 
 
Miss Betty Bee is flamboyant and creative, she loves to sing and dance, in fact I'm pretty sure she longs to be a Broadway Superstar.... she wants her name up in lights!!
 

 
Again, she is entirely hand stitched by moi, and she will soon be available in my Etsy store.
 

 
I am in full on sewing mode these last few days, and I currently have the cutest wee Polar Bear (her name is Patti... I think..) on my desk waiting for her new dress.... I shan't keep her waiting..
 
Until next time, which wont be another 3 months... promise! I gots lots  of  little dolls and critters and news to share, and I am super excited to be doing a swap with the lovely Denae from Ami Amore she makes the most darling teeny tiny amigurumis, you should check out her pretty blog :)
