The bears new home

I have just been sent photos of 2 of my bears in their new home. The photography is just stunning - I think I am going to have to move house and sneak them in for a photoshoot every time I finish one ! thank you so much David. I have to share them!

Well I have just put Jones on my website. A cute little 'Fat Head' I have had a very unproductive week with the bears ,what with birthdays, girls home and that horrid thing called housework, and am desperate to get cracking again.
Didn't hear from the police - what a surprise!!

Mrs Angry!!!

Went a walk in park earlier. It was about 5.45 when we got to the busy childrens play area where we encountered a group of drunken idiots sitting close by. One chap was having a pee up a tree and blatently exposing himself to the children. I shouted at him and he gave me a mouthful of abuse. A Polish man came up to us with his daughter and told us that he had phoned the police at 5 o'clock because they were driving across the grass where the children were and being abusive. Now.... the police station is 3 minutes away!! We charged up there and told them what was happening. The woman on the desk couldn't open the door to tell a policeman to go and sort them out, she had to ring whoever they have to ring. The conversation she had with whoever she was talking to was just ridiculous. She kept having to explain where the incident had occurred and it appeared they didn't know where it was. She then mentioned that 6 o'clock was changeover so they were being briefed before they went on duty - couldn't help wondering if this was why no-one had turned up earlier, perhaps they didn't want overtime! She told them I wanted to them to call me - it is now 9.44 and not a peek! Rant over

Hubbys Birthday!

Well it is hubbys significant birthday today - he has taken the day off and we have been a nice walk in the park and he has been to the gym while I scrubbed and cleaned!! Now we are off to see our daughter in Leamington. She is studying hard (I hope) for her final uni exams. After a picnic in the park we are off to Birmingham to see my brother and then out for a meal with Mikes' Brother and wife. I shall be taking my sewing while we sit and sunbathe of course.

My favourite bears have both been sold which I am part sad about but highly delighted that they are going to a very good home together.

21st April 2009

I thought I had better change the layout of my blog so have started again! As it is only 7.40am nothing much has happened today except that I have had a nice walk around the park by the river. Mr Foo and Bear went on my site last night and Bear has been sold. Poor Mr Foo feels a bit unwanted!!
On to some much needed housework now as I believe the weather is going to be glorious today so I might be bearmaking on the roof again!

Rooftop bathing

I have just been on my rooftop sewing a bear, it was fab. First time as we have to get to it through the loft and at last after 6 years we now have proper loft ladders so I am not afraid!!! So private as well - just us and the pidgeons!! Making 2 bears out of 100 year old upholstery velvet.
