The weekend was hot and humid but still very nice. I couldn't get myself to start working on a new bear and instead crocheted a dress and panties for one of my Heidi Ott dolls. As soon as I get a chance to take a picture I will post one.
In the meantime I will introduce my bear Henrietta to you. Henrietta is huge! The picture shows her with a Princess Peggy doll by Horsman and a Patty Playpal by Ideal. If you are familiar with the size of these dolls (about 36 inches or 90 cm) you can imagine the size of Henrietta, the gentle giant!

I wish everybody a great start of the week!

I am still having a great time in Germany although it is almost time to pack!

I am enjoying my stay in Germany with trips to Belgium and the Netherlands, and of course lots of family time!

Another oldie! Cecilia in a suitcase!

I am sitting at the airport, waiting for my flight to Germany. As it looks right now the flight will leave with a 2 hour delay which will make me miss my connection in Germany. Well, I am determined to take it easy. My hand luggage contains of course a crochet hook and yarn, not to make a bear, but to make some clothes for a mini doll. I used to crochet bears on my flights but it got always highly complicated when my yarn rolled off my lap directly under the seat in front of me or worse, into the aisle!

Hope everybody is having a great Wednesday!

On Wednesday I am leaving for Germany. I am glad that I was able to finish and enter my URSA competition bear before leaving. I also have started working on another small bear but won't be able to work on it for the next 3 weeks. Hopefully the weather in Germany will be cooperative so that we can enjoy the time. I am so much looking forward to seeing my siblings and nieces and nephews.

Today I had a very productive day! Finally I can see the surface of my desk again! The piles of papers are gone, everything read, answered and filed! I even had time to play with a bear photo on my computer!
