Gladys Pillburough by vickangaroo Gladys Pillburough by vickangaroo
12 inches tall, 18 inches long if you measure to the end of its leg tip.

Here she is! [link]

That'll take you to her Etsy listing, but here is the short narrative from the listing:

"She was born and raised within the dark and dusty walls of an unimaginably beautiful, historic world overrun by countless pests and vermin. It was a terrifying sort of place; dangers throughout every hallowed hall but Gladys Pillburough isn't the easily terrified sort.

She was but one of thousand in her brood, but she was quick and more importantly she was clever. When she was small she'd kept to the swarms; there was strength in numbers. She and her brethren grew older and larger, leaving their nest and pushing forward into the perils of the unknown.

She observed and studied the lesser ones; those that scurried mindlessly or meandered without caution. She scurried past the larger beasts and gobbled up the smaller pests. She quickly learnt to avoid the web filled corners which too often made easy meals for those endlessly patient predators hidden in the darkest shadows.

She was a survivor. Moving swiftly in the daylight, leaping across the treacherous landscape, growing stronger and quicker with each passing day. She outlived all her siblings and mothered a great deal of children. A matriarch who dwarfed even her greatest potential foes. Whether they possessed claws, fangs or wings, none could truly oppose her.

However, Gladys Pillburough had yet to face her greatest challenge. A new era of terror would soon be upon them all. Monstrous creatures who spoke in thunderous booms. They were bringers of light but they would seek the absolute devastation of her sacred home. She would protect all those who dwelled here. She would become legend!"

Sorry for late message, I actually meant to include a thank you note in the box which would explain the bonus bunny.

I'm very happy that Gladys Pillburough has a wonderful new home! I hope she is not a disappointment! I haven't done very much work for my shop since the holidays so I haven't had many sales this month, hopefully I'll be changing that soon!

If you have any complaints or issues with Gladys let me know!

So cool again :3 I love it. How long does something like this take?

To be honest I started on this long, long ago (few months ago) and mostly set her aside. I had finished the mouth and part of the body after several hours in the beginning(I think) since a lot of the work was on a machine. The sewing was quick but there were lots of little pieces to sew together! A little bit of work every now and then, but I finished her last night and it was actually a lot of hand-sewing to attach her legs and antennae and those back bumps. I work very slowly when I sew by hand.

I've come to realize that I really like pinks and purples and warmer colors. Which just means my piles of green and blue fleece are being neglected!

You could use them for something to complement all the warm-colored things! Maybe the background in your showcases? You could make little trees! :squee:
