Current mohair bear in progress

I just wanted to share with you the colors I'm working with! I've hand dyed all 3 colors of mohair and am working on putting them all together in one bear. Oh my gosh it's so nice to SIT and sew again!

Mini Fairy Bear

Hi Everyone! I hope your weekend is starting out well. I just wanted to share a snapshot of my latest bear - a custom order for someone right here in Lexington! Her name is Gypsy and she's all of 5" tall and created out of blue mohair. She's a one of a kind!

It's Almost Show Time!

Less than 4 1/2 hours till the opening of the Teddies Worldwide Online Show (Bears on Parade).  I'm really looking forward to it!  It will be a nice break in my day of paperwork.  Today is an all paperwork day... both personal and business.  Most times the business paperwork must be completed in order to do the personal paperwork... ugh!  Oh well, I am very grateful that I have the paperwork to do because that means my bears are finding new homes ♥

Just some Ramblings.....

Today I wanted to stop by and write a little, but really didn't have anything specific to say.  I thought I'd share a photo of my Aunt and I taken last March when I took a spur of the  moment road trip to visit her down in Florida.  Yes, she looks young - cause she is!  All of my aunts are not that much older than I am.  And yes, she could pass as my sister!  I look more like her than I do my Mom.  In fact, you couldn't tell our baby pictures apart :)

I know I owe a few of you some emails and I apologize.  I am trying to catch up on that right after this post ;)  My back had been bothering me a LOT more than usual these last 2 weeks and on Saturday night - when even muscle relaxers and hydrocodone didn't stop the pain, I knew I had to get to the ER.  (THANK you to my friend Jeanna!!!! - who drove me and stayed with me!)

3 pain shots later and still in pain... I had the thought to ask for an anti-inflammatory shot.  That did the trick!  This has been going on for so very long (since Jan) that I desperately wanted an MRI done right away.  They kept telling me to have my pc do it, but my dear friend Jeanna stood up for me and they did it for me during that ER visit.  A badly herniated disc.  We'll see what treatment program to go with next week.  For now, being VERY careful and taking RX anti-inflammatories. 

Today is a HOT and humid one here in the Kentucky Bluegrass!  In fact, it will be that way all this week.  Thank goodness for a brand new air conditioner!! (Thanks again Jeanna!!!)  It's a good day to stay inside and finally work on that mini bear for the website.  

Don't forget about the Bears on Parade show starting Friday at 4pm New York Time -  visitwww.teddiesworldwide.com to see previews and vote for your favorite bear.  If you liked my preview bear - he is the orange and yellow clown bear holding balloons.....

Coming to my Website soon!

Happy 4th of July weekend!  A huge thank you to all who are serving, have served or have loved ones serving our country!!!!  
I am just about finished with a custom order I've been working on, and already have plans for the next creation to come out of the studio.  He or she will be one of my 5" mini mohair bears... after that I'll finish up getting ready for the big online show :) 

Stay tuned!
