Winsome is celebrating Valentine's Day, I managed to finish her in good time and she is now on eBay. She is sitting on a pink and white dotted heart cushion with ribbon trim around the edge.

I have finally managed to finish a new pattern and kit for the Etsy shop. I even made this little boy in mohair which is very unusual for me as I really prefer working in the vintage long pile velvet that most of my bears are made with.
This is Harvey, he has turned out really nicely and has a very cute face.

In August last year I designed a Christmas bear for the Australian Bear Creations magazine. Candy Cane is now featured in the latest issue and the kit will soon be for sale in our Etsy shop.
My week has been quiet, just stitching and stuffing bear parts, planning what to make for the Hugglets show and a new bear is almost finished and ready for eBay. Photos will be shared soon, I hope everyone has a nice weekend.

It has been a long and miserable month so far, the weather is turning us into ducks and my cough turned into a chest infection. After finally listening to my family and going to the doctor I am getting better. Now we just need some sunshine and things will start looking better.
Annabelle is a new bear, recently listed on eBay. Sadly she didn't find a home so she is now on our webpage.
This photo was taken a couple of days ago, a bit of blue sky before the rain started again. I finished a couple of bears and a rabbit for orders, a new pattern bear is almost done and now I have to stop ignoring the fact that the Hugglets bear fair is just around the corner.
Ella Rose
These are a couple of new photos to show you. I love this picture of tiny Rose from our 2012 Anniversary set and Ella Rose was the last bear that I made for 2013.

The new bears that I have been working on are orders or the online show preview which I can't show you yet, so I have a couple of my favourite bears from last year to share.
 Vanity Cat
 Lady Violet Rose
 Juliette Mouse
Rosebud Bunny and Briar

My favourite colour is pink as anyone who has followed my work for awhile will have noticed, so it goes without saying that a pink cat would have to be made. 
I have a bit of a cold which has given me an annoying cough but hopefully it will go away soon and in the meantime I am busy with a new bear for ebay and a new cross stitch SAL.

Wishing everyone a belated Happy New Year. Life has settled back into an easier routine and after a rather horrible 2013 I am looking forward to a better year.
Which hopefully means I will have more energy and time to keep you updated  here on my blog. Thank you for sticking around and I will try to share new bears and works in progress on a more regular basis.

In the meantime the two kitties will say hello.

 We have a new family member, Belladonna came to live with us on Saturday. We got her from our local animal rescue centre, Wood Green Animal Charity, they do an amazing job and it was so hard to just bring one little cat home with us.

Belladonna is a tiny handful of a kitty and is 11 weeks old, she and her three sisters got left in a box in a shed and luckily someone took them to the shelter.
We will introduce her to Leila and Mishka tomorrow, she will be a lovely companion for Leila and I think Mishka is going to have tail envy because she has this beautiful, incredibly long silky tail.
I will try and take some better photos to share with everyone soon.

 Well I am finally back, thank you for staying around, visiting and following my blog. The last few months have had a lot of crazy stuff happening, some good, lots not so good but I think life has settled back into a semi normal state again.

Lots of bears have been made and found new homes and I will share some of the photos soon. I will also try and be more regular with the blog updates.

This little group where made for the Miniatura show in Birmingham this last weekend.
 Penelope Rabbit 2"
 Grace 2.5"
Chadwick Cat H2.25" L2.25"
I am really enjoying making the tiny little ones so expect to make some more as companions for the slightly bigger bears. 
I hope you all have a good start to the weekend and I will be back soon.
