Time flies by too fast! I just saw that I hadn't posted anything since August 24.
My days are filled with too many things besides making my bears: There is walking the dogs, my visits to the gym, working on stuff that is sitting on my desk and just doesn't disappear all by itself, etc. I need to get things organized since I will go to NYC for a couple of days and almost right after go to visit good old Germany.
Louise is the new bearkidz baby I just finished. I dressed her in a vintage doll dress, socks and shoes and put a ribbon in her hair. Doesn't she look cute? She is one of a kind, 10 inches (25 cm) tall and as always crocheted from a variety of different garns. Her "fur" is very soft and it is fun to brush and "style" it. Louise will be offered for adoption on my website.
It was another very humid, warm and sunny day. As I said before: I am so ready for the fall!
At the moment I am working on another bear. I like the combination of yarns I am crocheting with. It makes a very soft "fur". It will take a while until I will be able to introduce my new baby but as soon as it is "born" I will post pictures.
It's a girl! My newest bear turned out to be a girl! Not really a surprise, since the pink yarn with the tiny pastel colored insets suggested a girl more than a boy. But one never knows! Theresa is one of a kind and stands 9 inches tall. She will be available through my website: www.bearkidz.com.
Thank you for voting for Amelia, she has placed in the URSA competition. Here is the link to a youtube video that shows all placed entries: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voEHprCrlvs&feature=player_embedded.
I had a great weekend. The temperatures were not exactly what I would have liked (it was too warm), but I had a nice time. The positive side of the heat: I got to give the dogs a bath outside and this is a much more pleasant adventure than bathing them in the house. Now both have a soft shiny coat and smell doggie-fresh!
Today Oliver was "born". I have been working on this little baby boy for a while and can finally introduce him. He is entirely crocheted and truly one of a kind. He is 10inches tall and comes dressed in a German vintage baby jacket. Around his neck he wears a little rattle tied to a baby blue ribbon. A crocheted cuddle blanket finishes his accessories.
Oliver is available for adoption. In case you would like to know more, please contact me.
My daughter came to visit and left today. We had a great time and I am missing having her around.
Now it is back to working on bears again. At the moment I am working on another yellow bear, crocheted from yellow and white soft whispy eyelash yarns. At this time I don't know if it will be a girl or a boy, but somehow I have a feeling it will be a girl. As soon as this little one is "born" I will post pictures.
