Bear Making Workshop

On Saturday I had a great day teaching 3 lovely lady's how to make a mohair bear, I was asked to help a friend who was unable to teach the class herself, it was the first time I had done any thing like this so I was a little bit nervous! As you can see from the picture they all made a great job of them although 1 lady didn't quite get finished and has another leg to finish at home. It was so nice to spend the day with such nice people with quite a lot in common, and of course still get the bears finished.
The finished bears, don't they look great?

I'm so pleased with this window box I planted in the Autumn

These Hyacinth's have a great smell
I've got my Easter swap finished and all packed up ready to post tomorrow, its quite exciting, I can't wait to receive mine, watch this space! I've also been busy cutting out new Bears as I have a fair coming up in June and I need to make more 'Cup Cakes'

Lovely Day Out

I had a lovely day out yesterday in the little fishing village called Bosham, its a very picturesque old village, which also has a wonderful craft village, it is stuffed full of all types of crafts, we had a field day looking around, but oh so much you want to take home! I got this lovely heart wreath from the florists, just perfect to hang on the empty nail in my recently decorated bedroom.

I had to have these boxes, I have a thing for anything with cupcakes on, I found myself on ebay last night looking for more cupcake bits and pieces, much to my husbands annoyance! I am watching quite a few pieces but as usual I will probably be a good girl! (this time anyway) just had tax, mot etc on my new car 'Daisy' which you will be pleased to know I can now drive without stalling, finding parking a bit harder in a small car, the kerb is so far away!

I also found these great smelling bath bombs in Bosham, I'm not sure I will use them in the bath though they look to good.

This is my little fella Toby, who wanted to help take my photos this morning, I think he wanted to go for a walk in the lovely sunshine.

This is the latest bear to join 'Teeny Bears' finished this week, I am thinking about trying my airbrush out on this one (scary though) once its done that's it!

Driving Miss Daisy!!!!

Meet 'Daisy' my new car! I have down sized to a little Daewoo Matiz, although once sat in it doesn't feel quite so small. Why is it when you drive a different car its like taking driving lessons all over again, stalling it at just the wrong place, bad gear changes etc, and it feels like people are staring at me............. I am sure I will get used to driving 'Daisy' she looks so cute!

I love it when the spring flowers all start to appear, especially the Pansies, they look like little faces staring up at you. This one has popped up in my hanging basket out side the kitchen window over the weekend and stares at me when I'm washing up.

I really need to get motivated and start making some new Bears, I have lots of ideas in my head, I just need to get on and do them! Also I have been asked to run a Bear Making workshop at Bear it in Mind in Beaulieu at the end of the month, I have never done any thing like this before, I hope I can explain myself properly other wise there may be some odd looking bears created on the day!
