Munchkin's ready for the Great Pumpkin....

Munchkin's ready to sit out in Charlie Brown's pumpkin patch to wait for the "Great Pumpkin"!
To see him, go to my website or to BearPile. Guess what!? PayPal pending for Munchkin! At least that is what the email indicated... but I've waited and waited and no word. So Munchkin is available again.....

Omaha show

We left in the wee hours of the morning to drive up to Omaha for a small doll and bear show... its held in the Fireman's Union Hall on Grover Street. By small I mean three bear tables and maybe 20 doll ones.... but i really enjoy it. I meet great new people... see great returnees... and talk with great table holders. I don't sell enough to make me rich, but enough to justify 3 hours up and three hours back! Plus lots of nice compliments!!!
So hooray for Elaine's Omaha Doll and Bear Show!!!

Our Tennessee Groh family reunion went very well! We haven't had a big one, well... big for us, since 2003. We returned home last night...
Obviously there hasn't been much bear making going on.... but I did plunge back in this morning. I am getting ready for the Omaha Doll Show on Sunday . It's being held in the Fire Hall, 6005 Grover St.,Omaha, NE. It's small but a fun one for me. I will be taking the rest of the pumpkins with us...the total, so far, is up to 29! They've been so much fun. I'm also taking Emma, see above.... She's a big bear, over 22 inches.

KC Jubilee

It was a lot of fun... the Big Bear has left my living room. She and her cub were auctioned off to benefit Good Bears of the World . They brought a tidy sum...I think the winner was set on having her!
The banquet was great.... food was good, the cheesecake desert bar was fantabulous and seeing people that I hadn't seen since last year was the best part.
The show/sale was good.... John Lamb, the teddy bear mystery writer, bought Pepper. Wild West Charlie won a third place ribbon in the competition! But the pumpkins stole the show... they started leaving during set up and it didn't stop till they were all gone!
We will be off to Tennessee for a family reunion on the 20th but back in time for a small doll and bear show in Omaha, NE. on Sunday the 28th!

New bear...

well... not totally new but with a new look. Just "HAD TO" after I found this neat witch's hat!

I am still making pumpkins... I've already used up more wool than I thought I'd need. I've used two plus boxes of RIT dye and just bought two more.

By the way... my grand daughter Lili wanted to take this bear home with her... the moment she saw him, down he came and into her arms. Luckily I didn't have to say "no"... her mother beat me to it!

UPDATE!!! Hal will be moving to New Mexico along with two other bears!
