Reaching a milestone

I am so excited to have reach a milestone in my bearmaking .  I wanted to mark #500 by creating something special and larger than usual.  Quince is the result and I really was so tempted to keep him.  Many friends told me I should, but I wanted to share him with  others and give someone the chance to celebrate with me.  So, Quince is available for adoption by lottery.  All the details are on my website HERE .  He is one of a kind.  I don't have a lot of this fur so will be using it for smaller bears only.   No more big guys :)

I hope you like him as much as I do !

A fresh start

I LOVE this time of year !!   As Autumn approaches the weather gets cooler and the air feels fresh and crisp.  It energizes me and I feel creative again.  It was such along hot summer and an extremely humid August.  I am glad it is over.  I'm not one who enjoys spending hours at the crowded beach, but I do like to walk there in the cool Fall air.  

I needed to get back to a routine . As soon as school started for my daughter this week I picked up the scissors and fur and started making bears again.  It's been a month...... much too long.  

I have one bear nearing completion , and one other cut out and sewn together.   I may wait until they are both completed to list them.  I have some commitments next week so I'm not sure when they will be ready,  but soon hopefully.
