It's been a busy day with painting our front door, we are on the home stretch finally with all the painting, just the door two more layers and we'll be done - phew! I'll add a photo I took a few weeks back so you can see the colour, a big change from old dark brown varnish!
I have also started on a new commission bear in a gorgeous cream mohair. I love to create bears, I put a part of myself into every character I bring to life and each one holds a place in my heart. It's therefore always lovely to hear from their new families. Hearing how much happiness and comfort of friendship that my bears bring to people is the main reason I keep creating. It may seem funny to some but it makes me feel that I am doing something worthwhile. You may remember this sweet photo of Halo bear in his new home. I got this gorgeous photo from Kathy in America who adopted Jaunty into her family, look at her adorable Bichon's, Anna and Archie. Don't you think one is smiling at the camera and the other is thinking "oh no, not another photo!". I felt very honoured that Jaunty was the Kathy's first teddy bear adoption and he couldn't ask for a better home, snuggling up on the beautiful quilts she makes with his new friends!
Talking of snuggling up with quilts, I have got a sleepy little mouse waiting in the wings to meet you, hopefully tomorrow if he wakes up for a while to say hello! ** WED - UPDATE - Little Mouse is a little shy and is waiting for a bunny to join him before he is brave enough to say hello, so wait a wee bit. ** See you soon, HUGS, Catherine x
