Despite the wonderful weather which invites to have outside activities I finished a new bearkidz baby: Savannah.
Savanna is one of a kind, entirely crocheted and stands about 11.5 inches tall. She is wearing a dress that I knitted and a white hairband. Doesn't she look cute?

When I started this blog I had planned to update it more frequently than I actually got a chance to do over the last few weeks. However, I was busy working on bears which takes up a lot of time.
As you know, all my bears are crocheted. I don't work with a piece of fabric but rather have to create my "fabric" stitch by stitch. My bears are created from a combination of eyelash yarns and a crochet hook, and of course my imagination! When I start, I have some thread and the crochet hook in my hands. To make each one of my bears truly one of a kind, I never use any kind of pattern, nor do I write any patterns.
Here is my latest bear: Mica. Mica is crocheted from a very soft and silky yellow eyelash yarn and stands 9.5 inches tall. I will soon list her on my website for adoption.
Have a wonderful day and bear hugs from Marion!

I hope everybody is having a wonderful weekend. Mine is sunny with perfect temperatures, just a great weekend!
My newest bear which is handsewn from mohair and 6.5 inches tall finally got finished. It is one of some mohair bears I have made during the last couple of weeks. They will make nice gifts for my nieces whom I am looking forward to seeing in May when I will visit my family in Germany.

What a beautiful day again! For weeks now we are having blue sky, sunshine and summer-like temperatures. The trees looked like snow covered with all their blossoms. It is so nice to see all the wonderful young green leaves. Winter is definitely gone!
Soon we will complain that it is too hot! Right now the weather is perfect and it could stay this way all year! But then ..... there is something wonderful about having four seasons!
