Teddy Bear Mountain

Sorry, I've been a bit quiet of late - due to this little pile of teddies above. This is part of the Gallery shop order I'm working on this week. Very hard work as they're all individually handsewn and the features are hand embroidered too. I think I will try and have a little stock of these guys in the future, as making them in batches like this can be exhausting (note to self for next year!) Anyway, it's nice to see them all done and ready for packaging.

These are really my 'bread and butter' line and sell quite well in the Gallery shop. I'm looking forward to finishing my 'tweedies' this week though and getting back to some fun, experimental stuff for the craft fair at the end of the month. It'll all go a bit mad from now till Christmas, so I'm just going to go with the flow and enjoy the ride!

Many apologies if I haven't been commenting much on blogs (or responding to comments), but I will be back on track next week hopefully!

P.S. The little teddies are also available to order on my own website too :)

Those are some cute teddybears, Alison! Funny, just a couple of hours ago I read the story about the origin of the teddybear and told it to my little ones. :-)

I thought of you today. The Melbourne Cup was today. This is a horse race in Australia that stops a nation. Victoria even has a public holiday for it. One of the runners was "Harris Tweed", so I had to back him. He didn't do any good, but that doesn't matter.

I love your teddies, I really do. I'm thinking about getting one for my daughter and a dinosaur for my son for Christmas. I imagine they'd be delighted!

Thank you for lovely comments :) They are hard work to make but I think they're worth it in the end!
