Hi ho hi ho.


Yes I'm off to work. Oh how I wish that I could stay at home and just surround myself with mountains of mohair , and make bears until I was dizzy!! But it's off to work I go and very reluctantly too because I really need to finish my pink bear in order to start my next! I don't know about anyone else but I'm beginning to feel that I can't work on more than one bear at a time. I feel that the rhythm is broken if I start another project and then the spark is lost and it's so hard to go back to. Maybe it's because I'm so new to this and still developing my techniques , I have a hilarious reminder of just how much I've learnt when I look at the first bear/"thing" that I made. It was made out of wool boucle with quite a lot of stretch to it so when I stuffed the head it just kept getting bigger and bigger and BIGGER!! Does anyone else have any pics of the first bear or softie that they made??????????? Please share ;-) . Hugs Ginie-Lee xx

Hi Matthew! I'm so sorry you spoilt your new bear but couldn't you have incorporated it into the vintage look? had a near myself the other day so I've banned tea drinking around the bears . Glad you like the cat it makes me laugh whenever I see it , Hugs Ginie-Lee xx

Ginnie we all have those horror first bear pictures, not sure how to share them, hee hee, thats my excuse. I'm like you if I go off one bear to start another, its stays unfinished. I have one now, head, body, arms, even a bow around its neck....no legs. I've lost it with that one. That reminds me, theres another half finished bear, promise to finish that one soon!
