Well my goodness doesn`t time fly ! I can`t believe its been nearly 6 weeks since I posted here!
What Have I been upto?
well as always I have been busy, not with bears but that will soon change I have been sifting through the pile of mohair to gain some inspiration. There are a few more miniatures on the go but nothing to show for my efforts yet :o)
I have however just finished this little bear, a special commission from Sue. The remit was a rainbow bear in pastel shades.

Alfie and Charlotte are doing very well, they came to stay last weekend, what a treat to have all my kids together for a change! And looking after a baby is just like riding a bike! Heres an updated pic of Alfie now he`s 6weeks old…. and smiling

What I have been busy with is ….. my garden ! Everything is bursting into colour! I just love flowers, my ultimate favourites are lupins, columbines, Iris and fushias, so here are a couple of pics….

This last picture is of my red velvet bearded Iris, I bought these about 3 years ago and planted them in my last garden, the clump got larger and larger but they didn`t flower. I uprooted them and transfered them into my new garden when I moved and now after a long wait, this year they are going to do themselves justice :o) and provide me with 6 flowers!

I hope they are as lovely as they are supposed to be and not a complete disapointment!!

My gorgeous hubby bought me not one but 2 beautiful David Austin Roses for my birthday from the RHS Flower show at Hampton palace last year. They too are about to burst into splendor :o)

There is nothing like walking around the garden first thing in the morning with a cup of tea before starting work.
