Friday the 13th .........

Today is that day which seems to be regarded with much superstition and after considerable research I cannot find any justifiable or sensible reason why today is considered unlucky!

However, it seems like a good day for a sale and I have added some bears to our web page which are available at a much reduced price.  Click on 'available bears' to be taken to the page with bears available for adoption.

I mentioned in my last blog that I had designed a pattern for a fox and promised a pic.   I think the pattern needs some work as he is perhaps a little too cartoon character, not really my style.     This is definitely a prototype pattern but meet Basil Brush, a slightly larger 4.5" with a slightly surprised view on life....

New Year seems in the distant past already and I do have a lot of orders to complete.     Hugglets is just around the corner and we also will be taking part in the next on line show in mid March.   Busy stitching time ahead and little time for all the books I want to read this year.   Have set myself a target to read 100 books, I do have a passion for the written word and can digest a book in a day or two but perhaps I am being a little ambitious.   Will let you all know at the end of this year whether I have been  successful!

This week I have been a busy little stitcher, have an order for two polar bears and their companions which are now all ready to be filled and completed.    Also found time to dye some fabric as Megan is working on a new pattern and kit for our Etsy shop.   Give me a pot of dye and I will add anything so we now have some pretty pink fabric for bear's clothing ..........

23rd January heralds the beginning of the Chinese New Year, the year of the dragon.   It is a very long time since I stitched a mini dragon and my pattern will need to be updated, hoping I can find time to make one soon.    I do find that with time constraints, experimenting with new patterns is not always possible and I do miss being able to spend time on new designs.

I have succumbed to the lure of 'Pinterest' and should share this

If I can discipline myself to just a short while each day to feed my soul with all those wonderful pictures and quotations, perhaps it is not too much of a problem.

Have a great weekend.

Hi Wendy, prototype or not I love your little fox. He's gorgeous. I also love the 2nd picture with all the fabrics, really my cup of tea ♥ Can't wait to say your next creations.
Have nice weekend, despite the fact it's Friday the 13th!
Hugs, Thea xoxo

Hello Wendy, I looked up a section of the Basil Brush Show for you to see. It was a big British show and was very popular. Basil always ended with Boom! Boom!

Enjoy the clip, Maureen....
