Hi everyone! I'd love to introduce you all to WILLOW - my latest available bear. He's hand-sewn from the most adorable silky wavy Shulte mohair in a gorgeous honey colour - I hand painted his glass eyes in muted shades of brown, greys and sparkling black. New for me: he's 6-way jointed with a double jointed neck, and I've found that allows him enormous posing possibilities!!! His quirky and inquisitive expression really comes to the fore in some poses LOL!!! Cheeky guy!! here Glad you like him - thanks for taking a peek!

Phew! I'm finally home again after a 3.5 hour drive from Sydney. What a lovely show we had today - I met lots of wonderful collectors and now have not only new collectors but lots of brand new people on my mailing list - wooohooo! I managed to sneak in a few pictures while wandering around to chat to all of my lovely bear artist friends, and I thought I'd post my pictures here so you can meet them too! This is my stand before the show:

I'm just so excited ... only 1 sleep left until tomorrow's Sydney Teddy Bear Fair to be held at the Lower Town Hall in Sydney City from 10am-4pm! My bears and I have travelled up from home to the outskirts of Sydney to sleep at my wonderful friend Heather's house, and we're going to be up for an early start into the city. Unfortunately, it's STILL raining here on the East Coast ... we're all a bit over it by now (it has rained for more than one week constantly, with another week to go we're told ... hope it doesn't keep our lovely collectors away from the Show!) I thought I'd just give you all a quick sneak peek at a few of my newer bears who will be coming with me to the show ... I also have kept some other new beary surprises exclusively for the show so that way no-one misses out! Little Hobie is a brand new design - just a quirky little 10" bear with lots of character, and dressed to kill in his custom hand-made polka dot tie and matching fez! He's going to also be available at the show for AUD$295 + postage, so if you're interested, just email me.
