ROSA and DAISY.........

I've been so busy in the bear making department that I can't really tell you what else has been going on around here big sighs! I do know the sun is shining it's heart out today which is really nice because we have had lots of those nasty grey clouds and some rain and it is still cold!
I do know that Samantha & Tony (daughter & hubby) are due home from their six weeks honeymoon in Croatia tomorrow so it will be good to catch up with them.

I walked the beach with the dogs the other day to blow away all those fuzzy cobwebs which have been stuffing up my brain - hubby came along too BUT it turned out he was really clever and managed to loose his mobile (iPhone so not a cheap one!) and of course we only found this out after we had got home. Like many other guys he goes like this 'have you seen....' or 'I can't find....' or 'I don't know where I've put it' aaarrrggghhhh! It's like having the kids home all over again - don't you just love them!

Local Wallaby.......

These pictures of the Wallaby was taken by Dave this morning - this guy has taken to hanging out in our front yard - I walked right pass him as I went down to the front to collect the newspaper and he didn't move so when I came back I stopped and had a chat with him - yeah, I know crazy lady LOL!! He is quite a big guy and known as a Red Neck Wallaby - we also get another type of Wallaby (Swamp Wallabies) which is much smaller and I think it must be the girls as they hang out in a group of 4 or 5 and can be found most days down the far side of the house just in front of the computer room window - quite a large open area of land before it goes into a woody part so if they get the spooks they can bolt into there.

CAMEO the newbie bear......

Another bear is born and this time quite a bit different to my usual colourful ones. I've used that lovely soft dense Alpaca/mohair which is a dream to work with. For the first time I have made her arms bendable and another couple of first for me is the Trapunto pads and the needle felted scarf which brought a few tears to my eyes along with plenty of swearing as I think I must have stabbed myself quite a few times!! Ooooohhhh! my poor fingers are sore today:o((
She will be appearing on my website very soon.
