It's that time of year again- Christmas is over, New Years is a distant memory, and it's TOBY time... I hadn't really been planning on entering the TOBY awards this year, but I got an email from someone at Teddybear and Friends reminding me of the deadline, and thought "oh why not":) As the deadline was only a day or two away, I really didn't have time to make a new piece, so I sifted through my photos from the year and picked a couple of pieces out.
Result being my little girl Antoinette here winning an Industry's Choice TOBY award in the Small Dressed bear category. It's always so exciting to find out one of your pieces has been chosen! The wonderful Valma from Teddy's Bits in Sydney emailed me and let me know, always on the ball is our Valma!
So here we are at the beginning of another year... I'm sorting out my shows for the year, thinking of new pieces I would like to make, new projects, new patterns... I wonder how many of the things I aim for I will actually get done!:) Coming up is the Teddies Worldwide online show, the Sydney Teddybear Fair, and plans are afoot for returning to Hugglets in September!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas/New Year/Holiday break.
