This is Melody, my newest bear. 
I started working on her before I went to Florida and could now finally finish her. 
She is one-of-a-kind and crocheted. Melody measures about 10 inches and wears a hooded vest which I knitted from a bright pink yarn. I also made a matching removable bow for her "hair". 

Melody is listed for adoption on Bear Pile: http://www.bearpile.com/item/52306

Everybody have a wonderful weekend!

I am back in North Carolina after spending almost 2 weeks in Florida. This time the 10 hour drive back wasn't too bad and went by rather quickly, at least it didn't feel "never-ending" like in other years.

The 2-day doll- and bear show in Naples turned out to be another delightful and successful one.  I met again old friends and collectors and the weather was very cooperative. 

Now I am working on new bears as the Tampa show in Florida is coming up quickly. This is another show I am looking forward to.

The pictures in this post were taken with my Iphone during one of my morningwalks in Florida. Hope you will enjoy them! 

I wish everybody a wonderful day!

Had another great day! I went for a long walk, played some tennis, and worked on bears and dolls to get them ready for the Naples show on Friday and Saturday. It was a busy day!

Another bear is born! 
Blake will come with me to Florida where we will do the Naples Doll and Bear Show.
But first I am going to spend some nice days with family and friends enjoying the Florida weather on the east coast.

Today started again with sunshine and blue sky and I am looking forward to a nice weekend. 
I will take my dog Raven for a long walk and then help in my son-in-law's wine store.
In the afternoon I plan to head out with my camera and try to get some pictures taken.
The day looks just so inviting!

Everybody have a nice weekend!

The new year is almost a week old and I just noticed that I haven't posted since the end of 2011.

The holidays were very pleasant but now I am ready to start "normal" life again. I am looking forward  to spring, although we didn't have winter yet. The weather was more spring-like than wintery.

Today I took all my Christmas decoration off,  indoors and outdoors. Now I am preparing for Florida. 
I will leave next week to visit friends and family and also do the Naples doll show. This show is in my show calender for many years and I am always looking forward to it. Before leaving there is still a lot to do! But it will all be worth it!
