    Bonny's Beasts are the Best! I first saw her critters at a craft show in Boston. Jokingly I told her that now I would have to get pregnant to have the excuse of buying one for a child. ( I am well past the age at which that would be possible.) My husband surprised me with one of her beasts for Christmas last year and now I plan to surprise him with calico Dog this year.

    These critters are pure joy and they are beautifully made. And at a time when most everyone I know is under enormous stress, these beasts are a healing thing.

    Thank you Bonny for the joy you bring to so many lives.

    Bonny’s birds are even more amazing in person. She custom made something with the colors I requested. Love her work!

    I purchased this for my wife and she LOVED it! This is the third wonderful bird I've gotten from Bonny and they all add joy, magic and whimsy to our home. There is no doubt we will be adding to the collection in the future. Literally a fantastic gift for anyone! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! - Dan

    Dora is aDORAble!
    She is beautifully made, soft and cuddly, and will be the perfect gift to accompany the books I have chosen for a friend's baby shower.

    Bud came in today's mail and is sitting on the sofa with his new buddies waiting for the Warriors game to come on tv. I love his character, colors, softness, everything about him. Thanks Bonny!

It all started with a picture on Pinterest . . .

I am a puppeteer and have created and performed puppet shows with my partner Jamie for my entire adult life. A few years ago my niece introduced me to Pinterest and pinned a crocheted giraffe. My mother and I share a love of stuffed animals and dolls (I think much of my interest in puppetry stems from that), and we were both drawn to this giraffe (the maker is Wilma of Willewopsie: http://willewopsie.blogspot.com). I began crocheting animals from other peoples’ patterns, but now I design my own.

I work in our studio in the country in Southeastern Vermont. It’s a big, open, sunny space. When the windows are open, we can hear the Green River. It is very quiet and lovely, and we are thankful every day that we landed here.

In addition to crocheting beasts and creating puppet shows, I create felted birds and animals using a combination of needle and wet felting. I continue to explore new ideas and critters. When I wake up in the morning, the first thing I want to do is get into the studio to start working. Nature is both an important inspiration and a daily necessity; when we are home and often on the road as well, it is unusual to have a day when I am not outdoors for an hour or two, hiking, biking, snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. The exercise clears my head and often allows me to work through problems and designs. We are both avid readers and cooks, and Jamie is a passionate gardener, growing a good deal of our food. The flower gardens are my purview, though I came to this late in life and frankly, I’m not that good at it . . .

We have one dog, a corgi mix named Lottie, without whom we would be lost!
