Please meet Lemondrop, my new baby girl elephant. I cannot help myself .... I just love making these. They are very lovable and have the sweetest personalities.

Strawberries and cream?

A new addition to my Steiff collection. My daughter in Scotland found this little bear on E-Bay and he arrived from the UK last week. His body is a strawberry, quite chunky. He is absolutely adorable and the other bears have welcomed him with open arms.

My Valentine bear, Alice, completed just in the nick of time. Her coat is felted mohair and here's an interesting story about her little dungarees ... my friend Linda used this fabric to make herself a blouse for a special party when we were 14. We are now 55!! Originally it was white, then with age turned cream and when I planned to make this outfit I boiled blackberries and dyed the fabric. It's such a pretty pink. So my little vintage bear is wearing a genuine vintage outfit.

Have a fabulously romantic day tomorrow.

PS. Jack is so thrilled to have a sweetheart for Valentine's ....
