Well after all that I said in my last post, this little guy's auction is going on the regular time of Sunday at 6:45 PM PDT. The Thanksgiving holiday made impossible to start his auction immediately. This little guy is only 3 inches tall. His wings were sculpted from polymer clay and trimmed turkey feathers were attatched with glue.

Christmas is drawing closer. So starting now I will be listing my felties as I finish them instead of the regular Sunday listing time. I'll also be using shorter periods until the auction end. I finished little Taffy this morning and got her listed with a 5 day auction ending this Sunday. She's only 3 1/2 inches tall and comes complete with her needle felted popcorn and cranberry garland. The needle in her hands is permanently affixed and has been blunted.

Here's my baby bull terrier. He come comeplete with his handsewn quilt made from scraps leftover from Bullet's winter coat and needle felted tennis ball. He sits at 7 inches tall to his ears. There will be no charity permission letter for this auction. However 20% will be donated to Bull Terrier Rescue, Inc. to help with Bullet's medical expenses. His eBay auction starts tonight at the usual start time of 6:45 PM PDT.

Here's a pic of Bullet in his winter jacket that he so patiently let me try on him. I had to hand sew it because my machine refused to sew the fleece. My son say's he looks like he's wearing a giant oven mit. But I hope it will keep him warm this winter. I'm making him an in the house kind of snuggly jacket next. It gets pretty cold here in the desert. Bullet had his second vet visit yesterday. Plus we bought him some more dogfood which he hates. It looked like a really good one. It's called Taste of the Wild and is grain free with venison and buffalo. We bought him the other kind with salmon before which he also detested. I think we'll have to find another brand. He really liked the Triumph dogfood. But I can't seem to find it locally. He's doing better. But had a bit of a relapse with his feet when his course of anti-inflamatory was finished. He now has a 14 day supply and 21 days of antibiotics. Plus he gets a bath twice a week instead of once. Poor guy is really going to love this. But it will be nice to see him with a little more energy! His skin is looking better and he's growing some fur in his bald spots. And as you can tell by the pic my work chair is still his comfy spot.
At present I'm sculpting a bully felty that should be done soon. The auction will have no letter which means 20% will be donated to Bull Terrier Rescue. The painting which I'm donating 100% still has no bids. November 30 is the last day to submit an offer. So please bid now to get a nice painting and to help the bullies :-)!

Wow! I can't believe it's daylight savings time already. I can never seem to get used to it getting dark so early! We've had some really strange weather here for November. Just a few days ago it was in the high 80's and yesterday we had rain mixed with snow! I've been busy trying to sew poor Bullet a new winter coat. He's been very patient with his fitting. Pictured in this blog is my next little felty, Kringle. He stands 4 1/4 inches to his ear. It's kind of funny, I start out trying to make my mice smaller and they almost always end up being the same size. His candy cane was sculpted from polymer clay. Kringle's auction starts tonight at the usual time.
