BILLY boy is here..............


Billy has been patiently waiting in the wings for his turn to show off but then he went all shy on me and only now have I coaxed him out for everyone to see:o))
His mate Molly is now on her way to the UK so he is feeling a little lonely though he does have Jack and Amelia to keep him company at the moment.
Anyway, here's hoping you all have a good day:o))

New girl MOLLY.......


Well the end of another week and I've been fairly busy messing around with the bears and today I have Molly to show off - certainly getting the hang of getting the girls to come out:o)) There is another bear waiting in the wings but he is a little shy and doesn't want to show himself just yet. Geez! and I thought my dogs were fussy LOL!
It is very smokey around us at the moment - not sure if they are having a burn off in the forest which is at the end of my road or whether someone is doing it on their property. I know someone is having a pile burn tomorrow because a person from the fire brigade stopped by to let us know.
Anyway, here's hoping you all have a good weekend:o))

JACK the lad......


Yet another week has whizzed pass but I finished another newbie/oldie which I had fun doing - just love doing these old timers:o)) I've got some really nice dyed pieces of mohair made up which I think are going to look really good when turned into a bear.
It's a really nice warm sunny day outside so I may just grab a book sit outside and watch the world go by - that is if the parrots can keep the noise down - geez! it is worse than a mother's meeting when that lot get together LOL!
Anyway, hope everyone has a good weekend.

Hand Dyed Mohair......


It's Sunday afternoon and once again the weekend is nearly over - where has it gone?! Yesterday I had great fun and played with the dye pots and came up with some really nice colours:o)) There was one colour I did which I don't think is really suitable for my oldies even though it is a really nice Jade Green colour - so I'm going to offer it for sale for someone else to make a nice bear from.
Friday was a big day as Samantha (daughter) had her 4 wisdom teeth taken out - it was a bit of a stuff up as she only wanted to have 2 of them taken out and that's what she booked for. To say she was not amused is an understatement because it was very expensive - her hubby queried it and of course they came up with all sorts of excuses!
I found a Bush tick on Millie the other day (first one in 6 years, not bad going) so it was operation 'Tick' - I have a special tick hook remover so I let himself in on the action - he removed it and lost it! Knew I should have done the job myself:o)) We spent ages looking for it - never found it until the next day back on Millie's neck again! Did the job properly this time and it is now one very dead tick! After finding the tick first time I promptly put on the drops (Advantix) which I always use for the tick season which is usually Sept. through to about April. This time though I bought the Advantix DIY kit as it works out cheaper for the 2 of them. 
Anyway, suppose I had better get back to bear business and hope everyone has a good week:o))
