Hand-crafted by local Bristol, VA artisan Chris Hilliard, this little friend is too adorable to not bring a smile to your face! Chris has worked in fiber for more than 25 years as a quilter, and for over 15 years creating soft sculptures, such as this one! Being part of a military family meant moving a lot, so things that Chris created were made to be portable and of a size that could be accommodated in any home. As her skills became known, friends would ask her to create gifts or would request seasonal items. Her soft sculptures are whimsical and fun, which Chris says makes her smile and offsets her more serious side.
