Last days for URSA Voting, Bear Show and Bear PIle

Hi, It is a beautiful day here today - the sun is shining, the sky is bright blue and there is not a cloud to be seen anywhere !!  It is a lovely winters day, completely different to the weather we have been having for the whole of winter this year.
It has been drizzly (or raining) and cloudy nearly every day or at least part of every day, here for the past 6 weeks and this weekend the sun has decided to shine. I am so glad, I was completely fed up of the constant gloom and I feel so much better now the sun has come out !!

There are only two (or less depending which time zone you are in ;) days left to lodge your vote for the first round of the URSA awards for this year.  There are lots of lovely animals waiting to be voted on so please stop by and vote if you have a chance  Vote Now 

Earl Grey is waiting in Category 11 Polar Bears

I had a great time at the Sunshine Coast Doll, Bear and Minatures Fair last Saturday. I met some lovely people and Bramble the fox found a new home.

I was also lucky enough to win Bear Of Show with Honey Bee.

The drive up was really nice, even if it was at the crack of dawn ;) but the drive home was VERY long - I ended up having a quick sleep in the car park of Hungry Jacks Mugeeraba as I just couldn't keep going. I was very glad to finally get home..... and yep, I did have a burger and fries before I left the car park lol.

I have also been listing some more bears/lions/rabbit on Bear Pile -

and last but not, least I have been knitting endless beanies, which has been a change from making bears :)

Now, I am going back to finish my last beanie :)

Sunshine Coast Bear Show..

Tomorrow is the Sunshine Coast Bear and Doll Show at Buderim in QLD.

I was lucky enought to inherit a trading table from Lyn who couldn't make it, so I am making the 3 hour drive first thing tomorrow morning at 5am.

Looking forward to the show but I am not looking forward to getting up early.... I am not and will never be a morning person !!!! I would love every day to start around 11am and carry on from there LOL . 5am is considered cruel and unusual punishment *grins*

If you are in the area, please stop by and say hello to the bears ( and Ophelia)and I :)

Friends of Teddy On line Show is open....

The Friends of Teddy On Line Show is now open. I have been looking at the different animals all morning and there are some gorgeous creations there !!

I have 9 animals and 1 bear (to be the Teddy, all the animals are friends with lol) including an owl, a rabbit, a lamb, a fox, a mouse and some lions.

 There are lots of different styles of animals and "steam punk" seems very popular !!

As usual, if you fancy a look, just Click Here

It is raining again here, so sitting on the bed (still in my 'jamas ) looking at the show is a lovely way to spend the morning. I just need someone to bring me another cup of coffee *grins*
