A wonderful day!

The day was just gorgeous! Sun, blue sky and perfect temperatures. We went to capture the beautiful day in pictures and had a great time! Tomorrow we will have the same weather again and I am looking forward to spending the day with my daughter!

Wilbur is now listed for adoption on Bear Pile: He wanted a toy, so I needle felted a tiny bear for him. Now he is all happy and looking for a new mommy!

Back in the US

Back in the US! I had a great time in Germany but now it is time to work on bears again!
My newest one is Wilbur, the one in the picture. I had finished him before my trip but still needed to give him something to wear! His outfit was knitted high in the sky during my flight! Knitting or crocheting on a long plane ride makes the time appear so much shorter!

The countdown is on, my time in good old Germany is almost over. The weather is supposed to be nice for the next couple of days and I am looking forward to spending these with my family.

"Guilty" the needle felted dog is another oldie I found on my computer. I made him 5 years ago and he has also been adopted 5 years ago.

Germany - Day No. 7

Today the weather started getting better, the weekend is supposed to have nice Fall days for us in store. I am looking forward to seeing the sun but with comfortable cooler temperatures.

In my MacBook I found this picture of another oldie, Pepper the dog. Pepper was born in 2006 and has long ago been adopted.

I found one problem with my blog at this time: I can't reply to posts in my blog nor post in any other blogs. I can only post my own posts in my own blog. I have no clue why, but I just wanted to let you know! Could it have to do with the fact that I am in Germany?

Germany - Day No. 5

Day 5 of my Germany visit was a rainy one. Despite the rain I had a great time with my family. I bought some new yarns and whenever there is time, I am knitting little outfits for my bears.

The picture shows "Autumn", another one of my adopted oldies!

Germany - Day No. 4

Today was day no. 4 in Germany. So far I had a great time. On Saturday I visited the Euro-Teddy where I met old and new friends. The bears at the Euro-Teddy were wonderful. You could find everything bear: antique bears, artist bears, manufactured bears, bear accessories, some dolls, and of course lots of bear making supplies!

The picture above shows 2 oldies, both adopted!

It is time to start packing for my trip to Germany. On Saturday I will be at the Euro-Teddy where I will meet up with lots of "bear people" and also stock up on some bear supplies! I am looking forward to this trip, just not to the long flight!
My yarn and knitting/crochet needles, a book and my ipod will hopefully make this flight not seem too long!

Krissy won Second Place in the URSA Awards Competition 2011!

My bear Krissy won a Second Place in the URSA Awards Competition 2011! I would like to thank you for your votes and also congratulate the other winners!

Here is the link to the Awards Presentation page of the Bears&Buds magazine:

I received a surprise package for my win from Bears&Buds with lots of useful gifts like a cute pin, a picture frame, a winning ribbon and the best was a beautiful necklace with a jointed bear covered in rhinestones!
