Cy Bear and I have been mentioning recently the fact that I've been busy replacing the Glove Puppets who have found themselves Forever Homes over the recent Christmas period. I've now listed four new puppets in our shop at www.coldhamcuddlies.etsy.com and here they are. There are pictures taken at different stages of their development to be seen at their individual listing sites at www.Etsy.com/shop/coldhamcuddlies.

This evening was a good one for the sewing session and listing, because I was also able to finish off the replacement Panda Bear Glove Puppets as well. They, too, have been listed and here is a picture of them.

What is keeping the Puppets upright, if there is no hand inside to do the job? - I think I can hear some folks ask! Well in this case, I took two glass jars (which currently hold dried herbs!) and placed them inside each Puppet as their turn arrived for the picture session. Works quite well, I think - and I will be repeating it with the others in future. Saves me having to twist myself in contortions to do it on my own - or try to get fellow residents to provide their hands for the purpose. It can be difficult to get enough of them all together at the same time! They're an active and busy bunch of ladies and gentlemen that I find myself living with here in Heytesbury!
The Mini Photo Studio is a nifty little thing, though - isn't it? I used the red background provided in the pack for the Pandas - the others stood out quite well without the studio background. There are also black, dark blue and white sheets, with velcro edges which have their partner velcro fitments somewhere in the package - plus the special spotlights. (Have not used the lights here, because I've been able to get sufficient lighting from the existing bulb in the room. When I get round to re-photographing ALL the ColdhamCuddlies, then I'll put the whole thing up properly - at the moment, in the flat, there simply is not the room for everything in its proper place! We have a lovely, large, light Resident's Hall, which is available to us for just such eventualities, and I think that's where future photographic events will take place!
Finally, while I'm in the mode for providing listing information, I don't think I have provided the Etsy Listing for Big Koala. I posted about him before listing him, and don't remember if I provided that vital item! So, in case I did not, here it is:

Goodnight to you all - and God Bless! Isobel
