Ragdoll cat and polar bear

I was not planning to list this rag doll until next year but I changed my mind. He/she is now listed on ebay.
Cats are one of the most challenge animals for me to do. I find that I have a long way to improve and to be honest with you sometimes I make up to 3 cats to finish just one.
The faces are the hardest for me but trimming the wool is pretty hard too. This cat is just a little over 1" and been at this size the details can be lost during the making process.

I make my own glass eyes for all my animals. Finding the *right* size for the cats was another struggle. I used to make a 2mm size and not I make 3mm and I think this made a huge difference on the cats in total, after all the life of the animal are the eyes, won't you agree with me? they need to be just right!*grin*

Momma bear and cub still available at ebay. I will miss this set very much. Momma bear has an expression that reminds me of my self. I am a mother of 7 and their is nothing in this world more precious to me than my children, grin, Momma bear is not a young bear and her muzzle will tell you and life was not very easy either.... alright, alright... why not have some fairy tale to it?*smiles*

Good evening my dearest friend! I just got home from a visit with an old friend. We had to come home because I was feeling too tired to stay up and chat! I see that you came to my tea party! How beautiful you looked in your Marie Antoinette dress! :) (Oh how I love to pretend!!!)

Oh my dearest, don't you worry that you did not know the answer! I didn't either! I had to look it up in order to make up the game and I am impressed with people who have guessed it early on in the post!! You kitties are always soooooo sweet my dear. I know how hard it is to get expressions. When I draw, I always choose to draw expressions with simple lines because of the difficulty in getting the right look. Your hard work and perseverance has paid off and will continue to do so because you are such a go getter! I love them all! Did you make the little chair as well? It is lovely, like you!!! Bisous, Anita

P.S. The header is more beautiful than ever as well! Did you add the other images lately? WONDERFUL!
