Betsy Butterscotch perhaps my last bear for this summer!

Well it looks like our summer has said its goodbyes for this year, so I thought I would post some pictures from my garden without the snow LOL!!

Its amazing what you can do with an old sink and a chimney pot!

Trying to brighten up an old brick wash house with trailing begonias.

I'm a Poppy lover.

A tiny visitor.

Teasing you with Teasles :-)

I think I need a new bicycle!

I hope these sunflowers, honeysuckle and beans are disguising the outside toilet LOL!!

A small corner of my cottage garden.

Before and After.

Before and After.
It won't be long before we are picking up the leaves again, its such a shame our British summers do not last very long.
A wild flower spot in my garden and of course it has to have Poppies.

An old stone area.

I hope you have enjoyed this little peek around parts of my cottage garden.

I am busy making bears to take to Hugglets at the moment, but the time is just flying by, I do not know what has happened to Monday and Tuesday LOL!! I hope the time will slow down a bit, I have body parts all laid out in front of me, not a pretty sight LOL!!  I have tried to be so organised but yet again the best laid  plans and all that!

 I have managed to finish off 3 little Pies for my Bakery, as I do like making them.  They are Pumpkin Pie, Apple Pie and Pecan Pie, I enjoyed sewing their noses with my new thread I have hand dyed.  One I have dyed is a beautiful lemon, sage and cherry so that will be used on my next bear nose I think.  I only wish the wool felt I dyed turned out so nice, I wanted pretty pastel colours and ended up with antique washed out colours, however they won't go to waste as they will work well for my Toy-Box Treasures, but now I have to do some more dyeing tomorrow, fingers crossed for pretty pastels :-)

Here are my three new Pies

I have also jointed Twitter this week, wow! I thought Facebook was a challenge to get the hang of, this twittering is a whole new level.  If any of you out there have any advice regarding Twittering I would be grateful.  If you would like to follow me on Twitter my account is Jac-Q-Lyn Bears.

Hugs to you all

It has been a busy time for me this last few weeks, and I have not really had much time to make many Urchins, but these little ones I have just finished and they are now asking me to show them to you before I get to work on my new creations I want to take to Hugglets.  Gosh I think Hugglets is coming around far too quickly at this rate it will be Christmas again...OH NO!!!!!


Little Melissa is one of my 8 inch bent leg Urchins who is made from a pale biscuit German mohair.  Her nose is embroidered with pretty pastel colours, pink, lemon, green and pale blue, and wears a very pretty hand knitted dress and matching sun hat in a mint green with pink flecks.  She looks very cool on a hot summers day.


I love Sammie Syrup, he is such a colourful little guy, who is 8 inches tall.  Sammie is made from a rich golden syrup colored, curly German mohair with matching coloured cashmere paw pads.  Sammie has a cheerful hand embroidered nose in shades of lime green, tangerine and lemon, and you certainly can't miss him in his brightly coloured, hand knitted trousers and knotted style bell hat.  - Adopted.


Pru is a picture of sweetness.  She is a shy little 8 inch Urchin girl who is made from a buttery vanilla coloured German mohair.  Her nose is embroidered in shades of mint green, cream and pale pink.  Little Pru is wearing her "Sunday Best" dress which is a frilled edge hand knitted dress with a matching frilled hat in shades of mint green, cream and pale grey and decorated with cream and mint green silk flowers - Adopted.


Charming Jodie tries so hard to be a good little 8 inch Urchin, but she does have moments of naughtiness .  Jodie is made from a short pile blonde coloured German mohair.  She has a very pretty embroidered nose in shades of cerise pink, turquoise and cream.  Jodie is wearing a hand knitted dress with a lace effect skirt and matching hat with a turned up brim in shades of turquoise, blue, cerise, cream and silver grey.


Tim and Tammy are both 10 inches tall with soulful looking eyes which I have needle felted with lilac/blue and white detailing.  Tim has a pastel pink embroidered nose and Tammy has a rose pink hand embroidered nose.  This cute pair are both made from milk chocolate, tight curled German mohair with fudge brown cashmere paw pads.  Coy Tim is wearing hand knitted overalls with knotted straps and a knotted style hat in shades of lemon, cream, mint green, pink and lilac.  Sweet Tammy is wearing a hand knitted and crochet dress and matching hat in shades of lemon, mint green, cream and lilac.


I just love little Delphine, I think she is my favourite with her cornflower blue dress and hat.  Delphine is 8 inches tall and likes to sit with her bent legs dangling over the edge of a shelf.  Her nose has been embroidered to match the pretty colours in her skirt.


Little Sally Sweetness is made from a pretty pale lemon German mohair and has creamy cashmere paw pads and inner ears.  This little girl is 8 inches tall.  Her nose is embroidered with lemon, cream and mint green.  Sally Sweetness is wearing a lovely lemon and cream hand knitted jumper and pixie style hat with crochet edging and mint green satin ribbon bow.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my latest Urchins, I am now concentrating on making bears to take to Hugglets and perhaps a new design as well if time allows.

Well back to work for me I have a new Grog waiting to have his picture taken, he certainly is not a shy character :-)

Happy Friday!
