Busy, Busy, Busy.....

Hi again,

I hope everyone had a great Easter. I had some lovely chocolate and have spent the past two weeks wishing I had some left :)  Son #3 still has his largest Cadbury egg and I swear it is calling to me every time I am awake walk into the kitchen. I've told him if he leaves it there much longer I will eat it find a new home for it *grins*

On the Bear front I have been super busy. I have dyed some mohair in pinks/yellows/blues/reds and I have been making it up into all sorts of bear designs for the Winter Wonderland Bear show (Brisbane on the 16 and 17th June) So I thought I would share some progress photos. These were actually taken a while ago so the bears are much further forward than the photos show....

I've also been designing the animals for the Teddys Friends  Show  (see link on the sidebar) and I am just about to start cutting out and sewing them up. I also dyed some mohair for these and I have a gorgeous blue/purple colour (wisteria??)  I can't wait to see how they turn out and it really burns I can't tell anyone what they will be !!!

Hopefully I'll be back with some finished photos by the end of the week :)

Tea Party, Pincushion, Ferret and Friends....

Hi, yes ... it's been a little while :)
This is a "bits and pieces" post - a little info about a few different things 

Tea Party 

The Teddy Bears Tea Party wrapped up. Final stats included over 5000  individual visitors  and over 300 bears finding new homes.  I had a great time  and I'd like to thank  everyone that came for a look at the bears  and especially the lovely people tht chose to take one home :) 

I have a couple of bears still waiting for  their new home  - Emma is on Bear Pile already and Lipton will be joining her as soon as I have five spare minutes.


About ten days ago, I went to a pincushion class at Craft Haven. We sewed a mushroom and then made little faces/bums to go inside gumnuts and fur and then hot glue gunned everything all together. We all had a ball and here is my pin cushion - the stem has garnet inside to sharpen your needles and the top is a pincushion.


 We have a cute little ferret called Nog. As Crash (our big dog with a bad leg) couldn't go outside, we had to confine Nog to running in the one room. As Crash isn't with us anymore, we put the other dogs outside and let Nog have the run of the whole house. Both Nog and Angus enjoyed it !!!

 and Friends....

Last but not least, I have been accepted into the Friends of Teddy On Line Show to be held between the 13th and 15th of July. This show will feature the Teddy Bears "Friends " ie:  dogs,cats, rabbits, dragons and lions :) and also some bears as well.
