The Small Hug.

Well look what arrived ! My lovely little bear from Aleta is here! Hooray! What a journey he's had making his way from America all alone only to find himself dumped in my recycle bin! Thanks Postie!!!

He was there overnight because I didn't notice the PARCEL IN GREEN BIN note that had been left. Luckily this was a brand new glass recycling bin so no swigging the dregs from wine bottles for my little bear. There was about 1/2" of rainwater in the bottom of this bin which just goes to show that careful packaging is always wise when sending a bear through the postal system . Aleta had made sure of this and he was dry and none the worse for wear when I unwrapped him! I won this little bear by taking part in a giveaway on Aleta's Silly Bear blog , thank you Aleta I love him!!

The pic shows him with his new moggy pals x

100 Best Bear Artist Blogs!

I've just signed up to 100 best bear artist blogs. It's a clever idea that's been implemented by Paula Carter , thanks Paula! I think it will give me the impetus to update my blog on a more regular basis, I also have the urge to get a bit more computer savvy as my skills are shall we say lacking ever so slightly!!
I've been working on a pink cat today and already have a cute shabby kitty finished but pics will have to wait until my camera battery has been charged. These pesky felines are breeding at an alarming rate and I can't for the life of me think of the word for a gang of cats, is there one?
I've also been working on an order for a traditional bear which is coming together nicely even
though I've had to restrain my creative hand as the new mum has a particular look in mind!
Anyway more about that later if you would like to visit 100 Best Bear Artist Blogs just click on the bear banner on the left x

Pretty Plum Fairy and Little Lemon Meringue.

Well at last I've managed to finish my first bear of 2009 and a first ever kitty , woohoo! I really enjoyed dressing them up in their little tutu minis. I went to ballet class as a child and still love all the frills and sparkle that accompany the whole ballet thing although I must say that I don't miss the blisters on my feet and the pulled muscles in my legs! Anyway Miss Plum and Miss Lemon are destined to dance their way over to eBay soon. Let me know what you think it's good to get a bit of feedback , oh and they are quite mini by the way 4" and 4.5", so reasonably small, I'm liking small at the mo . I'm going to order some more mini mohairs and also some silk, has anyone tried the 100% silk plush that around ? I'd be interested to know what it's like. xox
