6,000 milestone!!!

I've been slowly creeping up on the big "6,000 milestone" .... today I hit it! This means I have made 6,000 bears and bear friends since I started keeping track back in the dark ages. My daughter, the one who is the Mother to my grandchildren, still has #1 which she brings out whenever she wants to embarrass me!

Here she is:
Sammie is 10 inches tall and made from two very different mohairs.

Bright Star Promotions' St. Louis Show

Valerie of "Bright Star Promotions" has chosen one of my bears for her post card ( I think) advertising the St. Louis show!! We'll be there! We're going a day early so we can join some of the others exploring St. Louis and St. Charles! And then we're all going to dinner... should make for a fun weekend!

What one can make from a scrap!

I discovered a little scrap of mohair in my stash.... kid mohair... soft and a little curly and long! Longer than I usually use for small little bears! Not enough for the usual size bear I make from this type of mohair!
Leo is the result...he's a greeny beigey color with a brown backing and a multicolored perle cotton nose! BTW he's less than 5 inches tall.
