My husband is a dedicated Harley Davidson fanatic and would have his HARLEY in the bedroom with us if he could get it in up the stairs! Now little Alex here was the second bear I ever made and he is very sweet so I thought I would dress him up in the biker's kit and give him to my hubby who is terribly supportive of my bears and often helps me to assemble them. I know Alex will be a very happy little chappy to spend time with the hubby. Besides, they are also both Sharks fans! So goodbye little boy - safe biking.

And I'm at my happiest when I am making or buying a conventional bear.

I took a break from bear making on Sunday and made this little heart as a trial for my easter gifts. I was quite pleased with the result. I was given a piece of Taiwanese silk for mini bear making and I used this as a backing for the heart. the fabric is very delicate and is lovely for an uncomplicated heart pattern!

I love you both very much. xxx
Ms Prior knits tea cosies - weird and wonderful and colourful tea cosies and is totally obsessed with this activity.
And then when the interviewer asked her to give an account of her "stash" (of wool that is!) this is what she had to say "the Stash is an enviable one. It oozes out of its colour coded containment into the lounge room. It has a particular fondness for the large coffee table, the dining table, my office desk. It has on occasion been known to take up residence on the kitchen bench. Only the threat of guests can coax it back into organised bliss. All that gathering and sorting is done to bring on the design ideas all in a rush and the very next day the oozing starts all over again. The cat is trained within an inch of its life to ignore it and the bloke has the "can't see it unless it is under my nose" gene so all is well. Who'd a thought that would ever be a desireable trait?"
Any girl who lives with a Stash will identify with this immediately!
I found this article so delightful. The Queen of the Tea Cosies has a very special style of writing. Her Wild Tea Cosies, is now a best selling book.
