Florian is another new bearkidz-bear. He stands about 8 1/2 inches tall and is as all his bearkidz siblings entirely crocheted. He is dressed in a colorful outfit: a yellow crocheted jacket and a handmade hat in orange with purple trim. Around his neck he wears a figurine made from wooden beads. Looking at the flower Florian must have a green thumb!
It's been a while since my last posting. I was quite busy with working on new bears and lots of other stuff. Herbie is one of my latest bears. He is one of a kind and as always entirely crocheted. This little guy stands about 7 1/2 inches tall and I made a colorful hat and crocheted a matching collar for him.
When I saw him sitting together with one of my dolls I had to take a picture of both. There outfits are color-coordinated! I think Reagan and Herbie look so cute together!
Today I finally got to read my copy of Teddy Bear Review, issue June 2011. I was pleasantly surprised to find my bear Leo pictured in an article called "Patriotic Pals"! Thank you TBR for printing a picture of Leo!
I also found an interesting article about the Tampa Show in February 2011. This show was really nice and I will definitely participate again in 2012. The article shows a picture with the participating URSA winners. The picture is a tiny one, but I can still recognize me! Reading this article reminds me of the good time we had during the show.
Of course there are so many beautiful bears to see and so many interesting bear things to read, I am looking forward to many more hours browsing through the magazine!
I also finished the little bear in the pictures. His name is Herbie and he is available for adoption.
