Hope you all had a really nice Christmas. All is good here in the Little Scruffs household. It has been lovely having both the girls home for Christmas (back to washing everyday!!!) I have managed some bearmaking in between the festivities and will be putting 2 or 3 new ones on the site tomorrow if I get on with it today!! We have a few things planned over the next week before Amy goes back to Milan so the bears will be a little behind but it will be all systems go after that
I would like to wish you all a Very Happy New Year and thank you to all of you who have adopted a little Scruff from me.

Just recently I seem to be making a traditional, then a doglike bear, then 'Fat Head' and back to the traditional although please don't ask for an identical one as I am changing my patterns nearly every time I make a bear and I am so disorganised that I just draw new head etc on card and put it in with all the others, never knowing which one is which. New Years resolution, well one of them had better be to make more notes and stop being so untidy!!
Amy, my daughter who is at Uni in Milan, had her purse stolen on the tram the other day. She was miles from anywhere and didn't have a penny, or ticket to get her home. I contacted the bank and they were so unhelpful. Considering we live practically next door to them, both have accounts with them for years would they listen. "She has to ring us herself" me "But she has no money & a pay as you go phone with hardly anything on it and it costs her 73p a minute to phone, can't you phone/text her?" "No" Grrrrrr
Finished Pud today and have started an alpaca bear now.
Hope all is good with you

I am in the middle of a new creation. A different head design which I am quite excited about. I am putting a tradition body on him but think he will also look good with the short legs so might do those as well. This one is in red and should be on my site on Sunday if I get a move on.
Have a good weekend everyone xx

Amy, my lovely daughter, is going to Milan on Tuesday to start her uni year abroad and still has nowhere to live. She has had someone contact her regarding a flat over there which seemed just a little bit to good to be true and it turned out it was a scam. Luckily she sussed it out but the person was so convincing.
Anna, my other lovely daughter, has started her teacher training this week so she is experiencing 9 till 5 - a strange thing for students!!
Mike and I are staying in London tomorrow so that I don't have to get up too early. Unfortunately he agreed to take me before he realised Birmingham City (his team)were playing Aston Villa!!!
Thank you everyone for being so supportive and I will be putting bears on the site again next week. :)

An update on Hugglets. I now have 2 weeks to go until the bear fair in Kensington. I only allow myself to stop bear making for a few minutes here and there so am getting on pretty well. I shall post photos nearer the date and if anyone would like to order let me know. I have discovered just how much time I am saving by keeping off the computer!!! I shall be back to normal after the show though and adding bears more often.
If anyone is going to Hugglets PLEASE come and say 'Hi' to me. Speak soon Hugs jeanxx

I feel I should be tackling a new style bear now and all day long I have been hoping for inspiration - it hasn't come yet.......
I am excited about doing an Event in Bristol at the Paintworks on the 7th November arranged by www.misi.co.uk This is a website for all things handmade which I belong to and is such a friendly group. So I am looking forward to meeting everyone face to face and of course there will be plenty of bears if you want to come along. I shall be giving details shortly.
The lovely daughter Amy has cooked another fab meal now so speak soon

Just to let you know that I won't be able to access my website until 30th/31st July. If you are interested in any of the bears before then could you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get back to you. Or if you are prepared to wait for the bear in question you can pay and will send it on 31st July. Hopefully I will be able to update my blog and emails

I did a really silly thing yesterday and put a bear on my site and added him to Misi.co.uk as well and 2 people bought him within minutes of each other!!!! Luckily it all ended happily but I won't do that again, it will be one site only!
It is my daughter Anna's graduation tomorrow from Warwick University which luckily isn't too far away so best away to bed now

Last week I went to a bear fair as a customer, had a go on the raffle and won an artist bear! He arrived today and is lovely.
I seem to have a thing about my local community centre/police station (Grr) yesterday Mike (hubby) went for a bike ride - fell off really hurting his leg and arm- and somehow managed to loose his keys. I followed his route on a very long walk but only managed to find someone's credit card!
Today I went to the community centre - huge queues, gave up and phoned instead. the operator said no-one was answering and we proceeded to have a moan about how stupid the system is. I said no-one would have waited in the queue to hand the keys in anyway! - rant over.
I have just taken Sophie the lovely Airdale a walk and am now wondering what sort of bear to make. maybe a small one?? Think I might have a mooch in charity shop for inspiration first and buy a teapot - gone mad on Earl Grey Green Tea.
love to everyone and if you want me to make certain style,colour of bear ask away - I never make you buy them if they are not what you expected!!!

We also take Sophie a large Airdale out. She is gorgeous, just like a cuddly teddy bear but very strong and she belongs to a tiny 90 year old lady. I really don't know how she copes. Dorothy is a lovely lady and really has her wits about her. The other day a rough looking woman knocked on her door and asked if she could use the loo. Dorothy said " You must be joking - if I let you in the dog would go for you straight away - anyway there is a toilet opposite in the park!!!" Sophie would actually have licked her to bits lol

Had a night out with the girls I used to work with on Friday and a trip to Bristol to see my daughter on Saturday plus a very long walk with friends today so that's it for a few days for me - back in hibernation tomorrow!!
On the last day of this month I will be at Evesham Arts Centre which is just up the road from me. It is an open day Art for All where there will be all sorts of arts,crafts, drama demonstrations etc. I will put details on my Fair page tomorrow

I have just realised that I haven't changed my sale of the week either so I will be doing that tomorrow - haven't decided which one yet.
I now have a whole room all to myself to fill (okay it already is!!) with bearmaking supplies. I have been sharing a small part of it with my husbands' tools and rubbish but he has now been sent up in the loft! I might be able to decide a bit quicker what I am going to use now it is on display - sadly I won't be able to convince anyone that I need more mohair!
I shall try and get a new bear up by tomorrow night so it's good night from me
