I thought you might like to see the bear I have created over the weekend called Mirabel, she is one of my new Toy-Box Treasures. She has been developed from a bear I made about 3 years ago called Emelia Jane. It has been so nice to re visit a pattern and add new techniques I have learnt since the last time I used this pattern. Mirabel is 16 inches tall and a pretty pastel blue girl bear with life like eyes. I am so pleased with the way she has turned out I am sure I will not leave it so long to use this pattern again :-)
If you would like to find out further information about Mirabel please take a look at my website.
Mirabel has found a loving home in West Sussex.
Today I have been making a new Grog and finishing off a new wacky bear and having a great time with some brightly coloured felt I have hand dyed to give a batik effect and some wonderful rainbow effect mohair, its like Christmas!!
Darren has also finished a new Furgotten Bear today, I really do feel sorry for his bears, the ageing treatment is enough to bring tears to your eyesLOL! but the results he achieves look so genuine. If you would like to see his bear she has just been added to my website on his Furgotten page. He is at present up dating his own blog so in the next hour or so you will see what he has been upto while he has his feet up resting his broken toes. Have you noticed that when someone has a bad foot no matter how hard you try to avoid knocking it etc. it seems to be always in your pathway, even our little dogs know to walk on the otherside of the room LOL!
