Where I'm at.....

Hi everyone, don't you just love the backgrounds this lady does, just click the logo in the top left corner to see her wonderful designs.

I've managed to finish another bear and start a pink one, 'real' work stops me from doing more but hopefully thursday and friday I can get on. I'll try to put a bear onto a special for sale page on the blog as I'm such a lazy websiter, I'd rather do the blogging.

Special shout and thanks to Kelly at Yesterday's Glitter who always has little snippets of interest and can inspire anyone, check her lovely blog and website out.

Freddie on ebay

As I've not finished my new bear I've decided to put Freddie on ebay, a low start again. It gets the bears seen by a lot of people and hopefully someone out there will give him a loving home. I'll have finished my new bear tomorrow and can start on a pink one, my favourite colour.

Chip on ebay very low start

Hi everyone, here is Chip my latest design. He is 8" tall, slightly bigger so I can machine stitch him. I find hand sewing makes my back ache more so this pattern is ideal. As he is a prototype and I used some left over mohair I have started him at 99p, so hopefully someone will get to love him! Tomorrow I'll be starting another, I'll let you know how I go on.

Hi everyone, thanks for the welcome back good wishes! I've managed to do the head, body and arm, so far so good, just a leg to design! Its looking pretty much what I'm after even though the fabric is'nt quite right. Although I've not got as much time as I could have, I'm really enjoying what I'm doing. I could have it finished late tomorrow! Hopefully monday will see me start another in some material I like, a panda would be lovely too. Ooohhhhh I think the bug is back with me LOL

I'm back!!!!!

Hi everyone, that was a long break LOL I finally got back bearmaking today. It was the perfect day, ie no nice weather to distract me. I think I will concentrate on slightly larger bears than usual, I've bought a new machine and handsewing makes me ache, weird but all that concentrating, I tend to hunch up. So today was spent clearing my workspace and doing a new head pattern. Tomorrow I hope to sort the new body and limbs out, might take me a few attempts. I've used some mohair I've had for ages but if I like the style I've got my eye on some pink mohair.

I must say it was if I'd never been away, glad to be back......
