Today I got a chance to take some pictures of my newest bear Joshua. I had fun making him a little baby boy with bent limbs and very poseable. I also made a pillow for him and needle felted a tiny toy bear for Joshua to play with. To keep him warm I knitted his little outfit from premium angora yarn.

Fall is officially here! But I am still waiting for the beautiful fall days with cooler temperatures!So far we have had only lots of rain and it is very humid and warm.

My dog Raven doesn't really mind the wet ground and even rolled in the mud! She came home covered with lots of wet leaves! I didn't think it was funny since she made sure to shake them off in the house before I could prevent her from coming in.

I have finished two more bears and knitted little outfits for them. As soon as it stops raining I will hopefully be able to take pictures which I like to take outside.

I wish everybody a nice fall week!

I hope everybody had a nice weekend. Mine was surely enjoyable since finally fall is in the air. If you look closely you see some leaves changing colors. Walking my dog in perfect weather was a real pleasure. I also got to take some pictures of a bear I have finished. Harley is crocheted, one-of-a-kind and stands 11 inches tall. She is listed for adoption on Bear Pile: Everybody have a great Monday!

I just noticed that I haven't posted in a while. Time flies too fast!

There were just so many little and larger things to take care of. One of the larger things was that one of our dogs needed surgery. She had a torn ligament, but is now on her way to recovery and still needs special care.

I managed to finish a small bear but didn't get a chance to take pictures yet. Tomorrow looks very promising for a bear photo session.

I also booked my flight to Germany and will be at the Euro-Teddy in October. I am looking forward to meeting old friends and see what's new in the teddy bear world.

Today we have a gorgeous day with perfect temperatures, around 80 degrees, sunshine and blue sky. Fall is in the air!

I wish everybody a nice weekend!
