Getting there .....................

The weather has been extremely unpredictable, one or two days of wintry sunshine and then grey misty and wet. The changes in the weather are reflected in the amazing pictures I took this past week. I happened to spot the sunbeams peeping through the clouds, grabbed my camera and rushed out of the house by which time the sky had already changed. Took some pics anyway as the sky was amazingly beautiful, all shades of pastels with dark threatening clouds. Think my neighbours find me strange as I am constantly taking photographs when out walking or just when the beauty of nature is awesome and catches my attention.
To really appreciate this beautiful sky the pictures should be viewed somewhat larger but enjoy anyway.
With Hugglets just some ten days away I have some completed bears to show for hours of work but still so much to do.

Without making a conscious choice I seem to have selected a variety of fabrics of different colours,  rather a change from little brown or beige bears. There are definite trends in collectible bears, the fantasy creations do not seem quite so popular at the moment, but every little dressed girl bear seems to sell. 
I am fascinated by the many hares in the fields around our home, have had my eye on a bronze sculpture of a  hare for some time, just wish my purse could stretch that far. Looking through my old patterns I found a long skinny rabbit which I have not made up for years and with some small changes I have made up a new 'hare'. He is presently sitting on the work table with one ear, no arms or eyes but already looks great. Dressed in smart clothing I think he will be quite special. Will share a picture shortly.
The on line show preview starts on March 1st. All I have completed and ready is one head with a body so the bear's head in the preview picture is just that, she is at the end of the queue for completion.

If I stitch fast enough, does it count as aerobic exercise? ~Author Unknown
