I thought I would share a pair of one of my favorite Whipstitch Backstitch families with you. The Yetii! Harold (tan) and Yota (white) are both yetii, but hail from opposite sides of the globe.

Harold is a west coast Yeti (close cousin of the Sasquatch) while Yota is a Japanese mountain Yeti, and lover of snow. These two, and the rest of the yeti family will be available exclusively on the Whipstitch Backstitch website.

I had the most fantastic time yesterday. Some of my friendly co-workers from The Village Toy Shop, as well as the fabulous Suzanne from Mommy Footprint and Chris of Saplings came over for pink lemonade, cupcakes and of course, a healthy dose of plush cuteness! I loved talking with everyone about the current trends in eco-friendly production and I can’t say enough how pleased I am that we are all embracing this handmade, local product, renaissance that is happening right now!

It was wonderful to see everyone, and it’s gotten me even more inspired to keep working hard on my designs and production!

Stay tuned for photos!

The last softies you’ve seen on this blog were designed for the Emily Carr Student Art Show. I started creating them on a whim, but these little softies quickly won my heart!

I’ve spent the past months creating new designs and sourcing new material and I’m very excited to announce that I will be opening a permanent home for these creatures in cyber space!

www.whipstitchbackstitch.com will be opening soon! In the meantime I am stitching feverishly in anticipation!

Also, a big thanks goes out to Globex Designs for all their help with the website, I couldn’t have done it without them!

I’m so thrilled to be able to spend time in my life making beautiful things for beautiful people, I hope you get as much joy from them as I do!

Created for the Emily Carr Student Art Sale, a true conglomeration of creatures, including; songbirds, elephants, yeti, monsters (with big hearts), squid, escargot and doormice. More photographs available at my Flickr.
