Really excited!!

I am really excited!
It is a while since I bought a new bear, and there are rarely any bears available from multi award winning Donna Griffin of Donna and the Bears so when I saw that she was auctioning 3 bears in aid of the appeal for Haiti earthquake survivors it seemed a good time to buy one.
He is on his way from Carolina now and should be here in a few days.
Here he is - Richard! The three bears are named after the Top Gear presenters, so I got the hamster!

Isn't he lovely? He will be coming to join little Dibley who I have had for just over a year now and love to bits. You can see him on her site, on the bear gallery.
Gorgeous, proper, traditional teddy bears!!

I still haven't finished my little gold bear yet. I never seem to get much time to spend bear making at the moment, it is very frustrating. I will post his pic in a day or two when he is finished I hope.

Bear making again!

It feels so good!
I finally started making a little bear today.
I just don't seem to have had the time and space to get near my sewing table for weeks and have been busy with so many other things. It was wonderful and I really enjoyed getting a couple of hours peace (well there were lots of interruptions but I soldiered on!) to get started on a little gold bear. Pics will follow when he is finished.
In the meantime, here are the same dogs who were charging round in the snow chasing sledges and riding on them!

Happy New Year - Snow fun!

Our local woods - it looks like Narnia doesn't it. Their footprints were the first in the snow apart from some deer.

The little dog laughed and had such fun........

Here is Meg enjoying the snow and sledging with Keith
on Saturday afternoon!
