Well the show was a lot quieter than previous years. Sales were down, however I met some wonderful people, and gained some new collectors. My friend Susan Leigh, from Bearleigh Bears, was over from Sydney as well as some of my wonderful collectors.
Here is a photo of my table.
I managed to get the following bear finished and it was the first to sell at the show!
From this on friday:
To this. Meet the lovely Madison! Wearing my favourite dress
Happy mothers day to everyone! My day started out with a breakfast with my mum and my 2 sisters.it was lovely. However on arriving back home at 11.30am, I had to rush my youngest son Campbell to hospital. He had a bad asthma attack. This is where I am at present, in hospital. The children's ward! Thank goodness it is not busy. He is getting better, however he has to have his ventolin (puffer) every half hour, as well he is on oxygen. So think of me tonight being woken every half hour! Will post tomorrow with an update. Hugs
I have just finished lunch after being at Oliver and Campbells soccer games all morning! The sun is shining, which is good as I have heaps of washing on the line.
Unfortunately Dave has cancelled his trip to the beach house with the boys. Yes, that was my mothers day present to have peace and quiet , no one at home except the cat and the dog,while I sew and finish my bears for next weeks show in Hamilton. Now it is not happening. Boo hoo! I had planned to stay up late sewing while watching girly dvds.
Below is what I am finishing, there are 2 elephants, 3 'no hair' mohair bears, small white bear and 2 polar bears on my sewing table all in bits....wish me luck!

Hi All, I was very lucky to have the opportunity while in Dunedin to stay with New Zealands' most famous doll artist Jan McLean. A lovely lady with a lot of knowledge to share. She has inspired me and I cannot wait to get stuck into my bear making tomorrow.
Here she is pictured with her friend Noeline Te Raki-Hill. We had a lovely afternoon tea with Noeline yesterday
