Well the girls are on top form and to prove it here is my latest Matilda wearing a beautiful jacket and hat made by a very talented friend of mine Jo in the UK. Jo makes the most beautiful old fashioned style outfits for bears.
A long weekend for us and plenty of bear business going on for me:o)) 
Wishing you all a good and enjoyable weekend.........

A real Old Timer........

bear_original Thought I would pop this old timer on here and see if anyone can identify him. He is made from mohair, pin jointed - got a growler but doesn't work - straw/wood wool stuffed - painted eyes and 46cm tall. Previous owner reckons he is from the 50's but feels he could be older. I have a sneaky feeling he could be a Farnell just not sure  bear_rolleyes I think he is a lovely old guy - love his face!

NELLIE the ellie......

The weekend has been and gone once again but I was kept busy finishing off something a little different. I took a teeny weeny step out of my comfort zone and came up with Nellie the ellie. She has been hanging out in the bear room for a little while - I've attempted ellies before but never really liked them BUT at long last I am really pleased with this one:o))
Until the next time I wish you all a good week:o))
