Bear Hugs 4 U Online Show

It's kinda last minute but I will be participating in this online show in under 2 weeks. The show starts Oct 12 at 10am est and continues til the 14th at 8pm. I already had a couple of new bears finished. 

Nudge, the elf for all seasons. is my preview bear. There is also one more new creation in the works. Click on the banner to take a peek at the preview page. Lots of wonderful artists participating.

I spent last week trying to get my domain name to point to the new website. Check it out..
Still needs a couple of tweaks but I'm pretty happy with it.

Following more

This has been on my mind all week. Besides all the political ads :-( , there have been a lot of back to school and fall clothing ads. My interest in style is just not there anymore. Don't get me wrong, I like to look nice, but the desire to keep up with the latest trends is gone. It has been replaced by wanting to be comfortable. I realize this tags me as "over the hill" but I have come to accept it. I occasionally  see clothes I think are really cute but know I would look like a late middle ager trying to look like a teenager.
I remember in 7th grade begging my mom for GoGo boots. For those that don't remember, they were white patent leather knee high boots with heels.  It's a good thing my mom didn't relent because they would have looked ridiculous on me. I also remember my first pair of bell bottoms. They weren't blue denim but green plaid.  I guess I really was never much of a "fashionista". Now days you will find me in a comfortable pair of jeans and a my style classic.

The photo is me in 1971. I made that outfit myself. It was grey pinstripe and the pants were bell bottom.

Lunch time

I played some yesterday and made a dress and some leggings for Pippa. So today she is having lunch with Sunkist, a Strawberry Shortcake girl. It would be nice to find the time to make Pippa some more clothes. 
This will be a busy week with several Dr appointments, including one for Lexi very early tomorrow morning. Looks like an eye infection. Poor thing, she gets all the ailments and Lucy just keeps chugging along at age 17. I think Lucy was stung by a bee or some other bug bite just under one eye. I noticed her rubbing it and next time I looked at her she had a puffy face. So I gave her a benedryl and within a couple hours the swelling was gone.
One good thing, Bill's appointment is near Hobby Lobby and Michael's, so I have been making a list of things to shop for.

Emma the Beagle

Work in progress finished and on her way. Emma the little Beagle girl is wearing a cute little pinafore and a matching ribbon by her ear.
I just love making these cats. Zelda the Zombie cat is now available on Bear Pile. She comes with her pincushion and pins in case an effigy needs to be poked.

I spent the holiday goofing off. Well, not really, I tried to make some little dresses for Pippa but wasn't happy with any of them.
This afternoon was spent needle felting a nose for this dog. It will be a tricolor Beagle for a custom order. 
A couple of packages arrived on Saturday. Some eyes and other supplies AND some mohair. I keep saying I'm going to use up the all the mohair in my stash before buying more BUT....that never seems to happen. Now, to get busy and turn that mohair into little critters.
