Little Scruffs would love you to come and visit the website as cyberspace can be very lonely for tiny bears!!!!

25th November 2009

Apologies for not adding much to the website this week. I have been busy in the background doing orders and will be adding a few bears that will be going to a shop in the next couple of days. I also am at a craft fair this Saturday in Lichfield at the GuildHall. I will be back soon so please keep looking in. This is one of the bears that will be going to Silly Bears in Aberdeen next week.

19th November 2009

Is anyone else finding that the hours in their day are getting shorter?!?! It is scary how quickly time goes by isn't it? Not sure what I have been doing since the last blog but the bears seem to be taking longer thank usual, perhaps I am on the computer too long (mmmm that could be it)
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
Nite Nite from me & the Little Scruffs

Just to say I hope some of you can make it to the Misi handcrafted goods event at Paintworks in Bristol tomorrow. Would love to see you there.
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

1st November 2009

Well the sky loooks black outside. Was out at 7 o'clock this morning for our usual walk and got absolutely soaked through - saved having a shower!!! Just in case I don't blog again this week ( am convinced my broadband provider is going to cut us off while the changeover occurs!) i just want to let you know that Misi ( Make it sell it) are holding their first craft fair at Paintworks in Bristol on Saturday 10.30 till 5.00 and I will be there with my bears of which I am going to brink along some of my early bears that I will sell real cheap. All the stallholders will only be selling handmade goods - jewellry, Art, wood, sewing, knitting, cards etc so there should be some fabulous original christmas presents there for you. So far I only know the postcode in Bristol which is BS4 3EH but it is in the Artisan quarter I believe and Bristol has some excellent shops and things to do there. Come and make a day of it :)
