Well, as you may know, dear readers, I was lucky enough to visit Seattle for the fabulous Plush You show this year! I loved all the wonderful plush that was shown by so many talented artists!

I love the mountains in Seattle, they are so pretty!

My pieces were shown at my favorite shop, Nancy, run by my friend Kate. We got to see the shops and plush before the show, so I got some good pictures before it got so crowded that night. I love her shop - there are so many cute things to inspect. Each time I went in I noticed more and more goodies. I made the little green bear and long bunny shown above. Oh, and the brown bunny and scarf above that.

We got to meet lovely Kristen at Schmancy who put the show together! It was like meeting a rock star! I read her blog each day! I love seeing all the interesting plush she finds.

I love these little owlies on the wall! I am too short to get a better angle on them, but believe me, they are adorable!

I love the guys in the back. They have good expressions.

Who would have guessed Hansel and Gretel would show up to Plush You? Amazing detail work on these - my photos do not bring it to life like looking at it in person does!!

I think Kate mentioned that there are over 100 artists shown in Plush You. I am starting to learn who they are and I recognized some of them from blogs and pictures I have seen. I apologize for not putting links and artists names to my photos. I do not know everyone and I simply do not want to get anyone wrong. I do know these are by Cutesypoo. Aren't they great?
Edit: Those are not by Cutesy Poo! So sorry! With a little more research, Raoul was able to find LouLou and Tummie! Thanks, Raoul!

I love the soft colors and use of pattern on these characters. I love the simplicity in their shape, too. So soft.

My Paper Crane, aka Heidi, is so talented. It was good to see her work for real! Look at the detail in the straw! And I love the twist in the third guy's arms.

I love these - the detail is amazing! I love the faces, too.

This one is a fav!!

This little sewing machine (complete with thread) was a favorite of Terri's!

Plush You at Nancy!

We spent alot of our time in Nancy talking to Kate and Aaron. They are super sweet. We also got to meet Mike and Janice. Oh, and my pen pal Dana. Hey everyone! I even got the soft cashmere whale plush made by Kate! He came in handy on the flight home.

Fancy is packed at the opening of Plush You.

Later that night we went to the opening. It was busy! Fancy even had a DJ, so it was busy and bumpin'! We did not have dinner, so Mike and Janice took us to Noodle Ranch. What a day!

Thanks for posting pics of plush you! I appreciate it since i was not able to go.

One thing is that i am happy that you linked me but i am not the artist of the toys above my link and i don't want to take credit for another person's work. No worries! i understand it is a lot of people and i too mix up names..

Whoops! My bad. I put an edit in this post. I am not sure who that artist is, but they are all cute!
