Huge Guinea Pig Finished!

Here's the story in pictures!

He was collected last week. The room felt very empty without him! He is a surprise Christmas present for the gentlemans wife. They have a great love of guinea pigs (I have too, I have two!). What an incredibly lovely thoughtful gift.

I hope if you are looking in Ian, you have found somewhere to hide him until the 25th!

There was certainly some trial and tribulation in his creation, but I grew rather attached towards the end. Ian's delight when meeting him made the hard work worthwhile.

If I don't post here before Christmas, may I wish you all

Merry Christmas & A Very, Very Happy New Year!

OH my GOSH! that is the cutest (and biggest) stuffed toy I've seen on a couch, evar! LOL!

You are extremely talented and I'm sure your customer was thrilled - thank you for sharing the pics and the process!

Happy Holidays to you and yours :)

Thank you everyone! It means a lot.

Hollypop, the eyes are made of glass and were rather expensive!

Hugs, Sarah x

It's Ian wife here - with a HUGE smile on my face :)

Thank you so very much for creating this beautiful, stunning, wondrous creation that is Big . . . hum, we don't have a name for HER yet, we have a few ideas but want to be sure before we reveal all!

We LOVE her and Ian's face, upon carrying her in, was something to remember!

Thank YOU :)

Sarah said...

Oh Anita! I am so very glad you love her, it's made the hard work all worthwhile!

I wish I could have seen Ian's face AND yours!

Hugs, Sarah x

Christmas is looking again - hard to think BIG WINNIE has been with us for a year! She has made a LOT of people laugh, and every time I see her, she brings a smile to MY face!

I can't remember if I mentioned a Blog post I did with her. It is here: http://www.fairymagic.me/2010/12/27/high-tea/

All good wishes for a Happy Christmas THIS year!
