Show Time!

Show Time!

It's nearly time for my first show of the year, the Leeds Bear Fair is this Saturday 28th March, I am looking forward to it very much, I love this show, it always has a lovely atmosphere, it is quite local for me which is a huge bonus . Whilst I am excited it has been hectic in the last couple of weeks, I cut all the bears out ages ago but have only just put the finishing touches on them (with less than a week to go!!) and photographed them all. Here are a few pictures and there are some more to look at on the website Valewood Bears .

I have designed this cute little bear with needle felted details just recently and they are becoming quite popular. However, I do love my traditional design, which I make in 3 different sizes and it is nice to have something for everyone so I have quite a mixture to take along on Saturday, together with some lovely new bear outfits for the rail. Hope to see a few of you there, it's great to chat to collectors and other artist too. If not I hope you have time to pay them all a visit on the website.

I've not tried the needlefelting on a regular mohair bear... must give that a go some day.... although I have a few more dolls to do first before I get back to a bear ...

Hello Ruth, Vee and Sue, thanks for popping by and for the nice words about the bears.

Vee I remember getting inspired by your little bears when I first tried needle felting, took me forever to take the plunge and get over the fear of the needles. I have yet to do a full bear but I am still a little afraid of those sharpies, maybe someday.
