This weekend was just wonderful. 6 weeks ago we had snow, although only for 2 days, and today we had 82 degrees, blue sky and sunshine. Some trees already have pink blossoms and look just beautiful! Spring is around the corner!
It looks like spring is just around the corner. When walking my dog today I saw the first daffodils and crocuses, so nice! The sun was shining, it was a little on the cool side but wonderful. I took some pictures of new bears which I hadn't had an opportunity yet. The one I am showing here is Toni, an 11" bear girl which I crocheted from a variety of very soft yarns.
I am leaving Tampa today and it will be a long drive home. Valerie had organized an exciting event, her 600th show. Congratulations Valerie! I got to meet old friends and collectors and made new friends and met new collectors. We had a great time and I will definitely come back next year. But now it is time to get packed and to get on my way home where my dog Raven is waiting for me! She is also a bear collector and is showing 2 of her bears in the photos. You will hardly ever see her without carrying one around.
The ususal: Just saw that I didn't post for quite a while. I have been busy working on new bears which I will bring to the show in Tampa (Florida) on February 20th. If I get a chance I will take pictures and post them ahead of the show. However, not all of them, some will be "surprise" bears!
I am so much looking forward to the show in Tampa on February 20th. This is the first time I will participate and hopefully I will have some more new bears ready for the show.

Today a new bear was finished and I named him Louis. Louis is one of a kind and crocheted from a blend of very soft yarns. He is dressed in a cute jacket which I crocheted just for him. He will go with me to the Show in Tampa (Florida) on February 20th.
