Birthday give-away

If you need to smile visit

It's 6th birthday celebration with a delightful give-away. I'm saying no more ... just look!

Wendy's birthday give-away

This gorgeous little girl is Amelia - Wendy's birthday give-away. Please visit her blog for updates on her wonderful creations and adventures.

The Essential Bears website was my introduction to the magical world of bear artists and ignited my passion for bears and bear making. How naive I was to think that I could create these tiny little masterpieces. I tried the miniatures but I don't seem to have the skill to make them so I'll adopt them and treasure them and admire their artists but stick to the larger bears. Perhaps some time down the line, when I have mastered the big ones, I'll try the minis again.

I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend.

Sunday afternoon

I completed another bear last night but the weather is dull and it's raining, so the photographic session has to wait until the weather clears.

In the meantime here's a picture of the cutest bear family. I found this small packet of old potpourri at a junk sale, cut it up, smoothed out the picture and framed it for my workroom.

Aren't they delightful?

Good golly Miss Molly

Molly was completed some time ago but I have been having problems with my hand again and have been quite "out out of things" for a while. It's all very frustrating - no crafting, no bears. Oh dear! Even this photograph is insipid ... but I had to give her her moment of glory. She is 13" when standing and her coat is Alpaca - a very cuddly teddy indeed. And a very friendly and happy little girl.
