The journey down there was going well until a trucker drifted into my lane forcing me to swerve, narrowly missing the central reservation and sending my pulse rate off the scale! It was scarey but I just carried on as I had no choice. It hasn't put me off because I think that I reacted to the situation well enough to avoid a collision - I was in control even if the crazy trucker wasn't!
I didn't get any decent pics while I was in Dorset because I kept forgetting to take my camera when we went out, so no photos I'm afraid.
Hope it's a great weekend for everyone x

Hello Mabel, you are in a mood, could it have anything to do with the fact that I left you totally bare for a whole 5 months before I reached into my trimmings box and pulled out some tulle, crystals and ribbons just for you ? So now you're dressed in your finery was it worth the wait my dear ?
This poor little madam was languishing in a wip box for way too long ! I'm glad she's finally got an outfit, it was always my intention to make something feminine for this little girlie but I guess I got side tracked with other things and forgot she was there. Well that's one of the things on my to do list ticked off, now on to the other 99 things!!

The landscape in the region is just staggering and the road leading up this mountain was like something out of The Italian Job - hair raising and I'm such an awful passenger since being in a car crash , so I closed my eyes and held onto my seat and was rewarded with this magnificent view at the top. Well worth it, only then I had to go down !!

mohair with 100% wool paws and inner ears in lilac. She
has matt black English glass eyes, and a pink sparkly
I made her some silk roses and a hand dyed ribbon
bow and lilac tutu. I think her whiskers and bendy tail
( it has wire armature) finish her off nicely.
Sugar is gently weighted with steel shot .
I love experimenting with design and have made many
bears and friends in different styles but now that I have
found my groove I'm selling all my earlier bears at a reduced
price. Sugar Plum is OOAK and is just £25.
firstname.lastname@example.org email me for details.
Grab yourself a bargain!
Scroll down for details of Belle .
price of just £23 with free p+p email@example.com email me for details
Belle is just 3.5" and is made from a blonde sassy long
pile, blue English glass eyes, pink lightly waxed nose and
ultra suede paws. She has a hand tinted vintage lace collar
with silk rosette and a teeny silk bow in her hair, oh and
a flower just for you.
Belle is weighted with steel shot and can stand on her own
with a little help from you.

I have been busy making new patterns and bears and still have about 6 in different stages of completion ( my husband would say that I've been having a bear frenzy ) ha ha. I love utilising the pattern drafting skills that I learned in college and it is this that has driven me to make lots of different bears. I also love trying new techniques and experimenting with different fabrics and sizes of bear but I think at long last I have found the type of bear that I enjoy making the most - small to miniature.
For this reason I am going to have a sale of my early and recent bears to clear the way for my new ones. Watch this space for details.

My sister Kyla gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last Saturday !!! She's called Sadie which was my Nana's name and I promise I did try and post the good news twice before but lost my connection to the net because of the thunder storms we've been having here. A new member of the family is a true gift and I love the way it changes the dynamics of the whole clan! The youngest members of the family now seem quite grown up , the Grandparents have a new role to play and the parents are set for the most important job in life!!!
I bought the beautiful flower fairy from my talented friend Chyna who has a studio in the craft centre in Manchester, it's a wall plaque for the nursery and completes a set of three, when I get a chance there will be a special little bear too for Sadie.
Congratulations Kyla and Danny!!!

My nephew is 10 years old and great company! He also shares my love of bears and has been reading the latest copy of Teddy Bear Times today! He's also been busy designing his own bear for me to make!

I will be adding more bears over the next week or so , please let me know what you think, it would be great to get some feedback, hop over and take a look-http://ginieleebears.webs.com
