Stitch has a blog.

For anyone interested, I have started a blog, just for Stitch.

It will be a great way to inform people of his health issues and care - also his progress, People are always asking after him and I'd rather not clog up my bear blog with his news.

He has his own space here -

if you would like to learn more about him, please follow him - but don't feel like you have to - I don't think he's be offended as he's pretty easy going.

Best wishes, Julia xxx

A new Bear is Revealed

I say Revealed, Because this sweet little guy has been with me for a while,
I made him back in October, when things were a little more settled than they are right now.

He's my take on a more 'traditional' style of bear, with nice short sparse mohair.

I like his ears, and his sweet expression.

I haven't really formally named him. although he reminds me a lot of Sooty - don't you think?

I'll leave it to his new Mum.

Yes, this guy is spoken for and will be going to live up in Scotland, I hope he likes snow!

He's going to live with the lovely friend who made my logo for me as a thank you.

Hope you enjoyed meeting him!

Just a quickie...

Just a note really, to say I finished my Christmas Ornament bear tonight. He's super sweet and I'd love to keep him! I might post a sneak peek at him soon; But don't want to reveal him all, as it would spoil the suprise for the recipent if she saw it!

I am honoured to be sending a bear to this person as it is someone whose work I greatly admire, and hope they aren't too disappointed by my less than perfect creation!

Once I have confirmation that bear has arrived, I will post 'proper' pictures.

Suffice it to say, I will never, ever make a bear of this size or that pattern ever again. Never.

Mini bears were not designed to be double neck jointed, but somehow I pulled it off. It was difficult enough that I won't try that one again!

He's made of the most lovely Tyber synthetic though - and the good news is, I just managed to pick up some more on eBay tonight. I like to sit and just stroke it.... tehehehe.

It's nice to have finally finished a bear of my own design again.
