Hello it seems a long time since my last post but I've been v busy getting a little hat collection together for a new shop that has opened in Stockport. For anyone that doesn't know Stockport, it's main industry used to be hatting and it now boasts the countrys only Hat Museum which is housed in one of the original mills from the turn of the century, I just love that place! but then I just love hats! On the bear front, Amy has gone to her new Mum and I'm working on some new head patterns which are quite similar to my very first bear heads only with a higher forehead , I'm eager to see the results. Cris has taken a week off work to give the front garden a makeover . Yesterday I had a quagmire instead of a drive but today and four tonnes of gravel later I have a nice new drive! Just need a nice new car to put on it now!!

If you want to get ahead, you gotta get a hat! I have a Chiltern Hugmee from Stockport Ginie-Lee but I didn't know about the hat history - very interesting. Your little bear looks very grand in that hat!

Thanks Catherine and Paula! Yes hats used to be big business in Stockport, I'm going there tomorrow Paula so I'll have a look for a Chiltern Hugmee , do you reckon I'll find one????????
Wish I could ,they're absolutely gorgeous ! My friend sent me a Sue Pearson catalogue and I've been drooling over the Chilterns and the Chad Valley bears ever since........
