I will not have a computer for a few days so this will be the last post until maybe Sunday. Hopefully I will have a couple of bears to add on. I am just adding an image of 2 bears I will be taking to Hugglets with me. If you are interested in either of them let me know. They are both made from an old mohair pyjama case. i just love using vintage material. They are sitting on an old hankie saying 2To dear mother - 1951" I thought it would make a lovely Mothers day present.I think I should have been born 100 years ago. driving around in an old Ford Popular.... mmmm maybe I was!!! Actually there would have been no computers and no chance of me buying supplies so maybe not! Have a good week and see you soon xx

Hello and a quick Hello at that!! I have just spent a complete morning trying to photograph some bears and editing them with a new photo editing program. I haven't got a clue what I am doing!!!!! I have been really busy with orders this week so haven't got much up on site. I find the taking photos and uploading them to site takes up so much time that I think for the next few weeks with Hugglets coming up I will be doing a couple at a time. I will be keeping a few Hugglets bears a surprise - not that I have made any yet!!! Hubby will be away for a week soon so I am planning to hibernate and make, make, make.
Speak soon and have a good weekend :)

23 years ago today I was even bigger than I am now Lol I was living on a farm on small island in the Orkneys called Stronsay and I had been whisked by private plane to the mainland to give birth! I went into labour on a Sunday morning when there were no normal planes so had my own private one. I gave birth to Anna the next evening. She has gone back to her roots this week as she is on 8 weeks teacher training at Bourton on the Water and is living on a farm.
I have been busy bear making this week and here are a couple of photos of bears that I have just added to my site
Have a good week everyone

The 11th January 2010!!!!!! I really haven't been hibernating, it's much too nice walking out there in the snow. Here in Evesham we hardly ever get any so it has been a real treat. We have had an extra week with our daughter Anna as her uni has been closed and Amy was lucky enough to have no delays with her flight back to milan.
I have been keeping busy with the bears doing orders and as the last few days have been pretty quiet I might get around to sending a newsletter out!! I have been trying to do a proper newsletter for months now without much success and always seem to bungle it up. I long for one of the girls to bring home a new boyfriend and him to be a brilliant computer expert who would sit with me for hours showing me what to do!!!
I will be at Hugglets in London again at the end of February and at the moment need a bit of inspiration to make something different . Think I need to tour the Charity shops, often see something there!
Intentions this year, apart from the old diet thing, is to be more organised, post more blogs and make even more bears!!!!
Keep well everyone, and thank you for looking AND if you make a comment I will answer you or give you 10% off Lol
