Two more girls for Hugglets

I have finished two more teddy bears for the HUGGLETS SHOW. I wish I could show them to you right now but it is raining outside today so I can´t take any photos so you have to be patient. I am working on the last bear at moment for the show, after that there are some bags to be done. And then after that I am doing my bussiness cards, I like to do them myself.
So there are still things to do even though the bears are done(almost).
I can´t beleive that the online show is next weekend and then after that it is time to go to London. But it is going to be fun and I hope that you have marked your calender for both events....
Have a nice weekend!

Busy, busy...

Ooohhh, it has almost been a whole week since I posted last!! Time is really flying by for me at the moment! So many things are happening this week. I do have the week of from work so my plan was to make bears....
Well, that changed quite quickly.
I went to a concert in Malmö earlier in the week and I have been to a festival too, very nice.
It is my mums bithday this week, and it is a big party as she is turning even.
So my dad is coming to stay, he lives in Holland, and my brother is coming down from Norway where he works. And where is the party going to be??? Yes at my place as that is biggest. So that means cleaning, shopping and organising every thing.
So you have to forgive me for not writing recently.
But I will put my preview for the Hugglets Show up soon. I think it will be next week.
So until next time...
Have a nice weekend!

Well we are still happy and not too upset. There were sssooo many great bears and this was only my second competition. But I had so much fun creating Norah and I will for sure enter more cometitions in the future.....
Well Norah is up for adoption on my website if you are interested. You can read more there.

15 years...

Today me and my husband has been married for 15 years. Yes, I know that is a very long time and my husbands answer to this is: I would have got less time for murder....He was just joking and it was quite funny.
We met when we were both on holiday with our friends on Corfu back in 1993. He spotted me on the beach his first day down there( I was there 2 days before him). And we meet again later that night... He came up to me and started to talk and we spent all the days together after that. Three days after meeting he asked me the BIG question and my answer was yes.
I went home after that not knowing if I would ever see him again and he was there for another week. When he got home to England he got on the phone and phoned me and I went ove to see him again. And from that we have been together all the time. AAAAHHHHhhhhh.....

Old looking bear

I have grown a love for antique bears and old things. It started about 6 months ago and gradually I have feelt that I want to do a bear that is a bit old looking...
I really like old pictures and scrap booking that you can do so it looks "old".
So, I have been sewing a prototype and finally I am very satisfied with the way it looks. I have only been working on the head so I have still the body to do.
But it is fun and a bit different from what I normally do, with my needle felted faces.
Hopefully I will have at least one ready when it is time to go over to the Hugglets fair. It feels like the more I have to do the more fun I have doing it. Does this make any sense at all???????
I mean I have enough doing the bears for the two shows coming up but still I am working on this new bear....
Well, when it is time for the old looking bear to make it´s debut you will have to tell me if you like him/ her or not.(please)
For now, have a nice evening!
