Haven't our ladies done a great job
I must have the best job in the world, to have such wonderfully talent people that I can call my friends.
Thank you everyone, everywhere for supporting us......we wish you a Happy Christmas and look forward to a great 2012
We will only be closed between Christmas & New Year...so if you are in the area either before Christmas or after the New Year, please call in and see all our new goodies

On the way to Croydon, I took a detour to Bright, what a beautiful countryside we have!!! I went to Cindy Cherry's Scrapbooking shop 'Little Shoppe of Memories'. What an oasis in that town, the shop was full of so many goodies, I didn't know where to look. I tried to talk her into coming with me.. almost, almost...she was very tempted, but hubby had been away so she felt she should stay home.

We had a great UFO weekend in Canberra doing noses and noses and noses and of course other bear sewing, but lots of fun. Krafty Frog from Kanbam ACT opened their wonderful workshop room to us. What a great shop....if you need threads and other goodies, go & check them out
Hopefully we will be doing it all again November so please ring 02 9680 3777 for more info.

Jesse was chosen as a graduation bear for her son who took him to New York
I am sure he is being well protected against the hurricanes that are hitting N Y at this stage
What a great job you have done with both your bears and thanks Shelley for sharing them with us

Everyone enjoyed it so much that we have decided to do another one for Christmas. This time the bear will be the same one but can be resized & use what ever colours you want

Mildura people, what a great show you had last weekend. The bear competition was fantastic
As I have said many times, this show is so uplifting. The locals support us so much, it is a pleasure to trade here
Bear makers you should enter, there were well over 60 entries, from Youngsters to Seniors
It is lovely to catch up with Annette Henderson, Adele (Serendipity), Margo (Tipperary Teddies),Barb McDonald (who is also going to let us sell some of her great patterns) and of course Kerrie & Lesley. It is just like one big family especially when we go out to dinner
Check out our facebook page for more photos

How clever are our ladies. Each entrant was awarded a blue ribbon at the Penrith show last weekend & one of the ladies even got the bear of the show. Congratulations ladies, I am so proud of you.
Our first day of the friendship bear happened last Monday, all cutout bears were delivered in brown paper bags and were then handed out. This week the head & ears need to be sewn.
Next weekend we will be in Mildura at the Lutheran School Hall, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th. This Doll & Bear show is a favourite of mine, all the people really appreciate that you're there and the ladies of the committee make such yummy lunches, and morning & afternoon teas It is worth the trip, just for the food.... hehe

Another idea that Dale has suggested, is a frienship bear. Eight ladies have taken up this challenge
On the first day each lady brings their cut out bear in a paper bag with no picture, then they choose another bag & sew up the head, the next week we all do something else. It will take seven weeks to finish the bear with each person having a part of everyone's bear
Can't wait to see how all the bears turn out.
Stay tuned & we will show you the results.
