Knuckling Down..

Well almost recovered from my cold and jetlag now! I swear it's so much harder to do the time change thing when you get home than the outbound trip.... I am sure it must be because you don't want to miss a minute of the new exciting place you're visiting:)
Summer seems to be giving us one last reminder before she disappears as the weather has been lovely the last few days, so warm and sunny. I ventured into the city to visit the Flower and Garden show on Thursday, perfect weather for it! I bought some Freesia and Ranunculus bulbs, as well as some teeny tiny Orchid plants... wish me luck getting them to grow and flower!:)
I've uploaded a couple of pieces to Bearpile this morning, and have some ideas brewing for new pieces... a new pattern on my workbench stitched, turned and stuffed, waiting to be jointed. I am sure other bearmakers know that exciting feeling! I wonder if I am alone in propping the pieces up against one another once they're stuffed to see how it is going to turn out lol.... the suspense!
Well, I'll be off for now... this new design is calling my name.....:-D

Counting Down!

Well, the hours are counting down til the virtual doors close on the Teddies Worldwide Tea Party show. I'm so fortunate to say most of my pieces are sold, only two left. Yep that would be them above:)
Lots of sales from lots of artists it seems, browsing the pages, but still lots of wonderful pieces left. So it's not too late if you'd still like to take a peek!
As for me well I've still not completely emptied my suitcase, tho my workbench is almost tidy enough to start afresh... No fun to get home to see the leftovers of the work I'd finished off a month ago!:) I keep telling myself one day I won't work til the last minute the night before I go to a show, but why I think after all these years ( 23 or so, since my first show) it will ever change I don't know lol.

Here in Australia I believe it starts at 6AM Saturday, and 4pm East Coast time in the USA.
This is a sneak preview of one of my bears, please stop by and visit the many creations based on the 'Tea Party' theme!
