APRIL Birthstone Bear

Its been a hectic time but I have managed to finish the APRIL Birthstone Bear in time for the 1st April.  I have named him 'Diamonds are Forever'! Thought he represented the black and white diamond very well by making him a black and white Panda type Bear.  I found him a lovely heart shaped crystal for his neck and finished him with a large satin bow.   He is now on the website and ready for a wonderful new home x

The warm Spring Sunshine

The warmth of the Sunshine has at last seen my fishes emerge from the depths of their pond.  This is the first time we have seen them all swimming near the surface for many months

Today they have even taken some food, not much but if it doesn't get too cold again over the weekend we may see them more often now.

As always though, the two ghost Koi are not so keen!  They are still hiding just under the surface, if you look closely you might just be able to see them?

Up & Downs of a weekend!

Had a really wonderful start to the weekend with the Blooming Bear on line Show which ran for 36 hours this past weekend.  My Show Bears! Pussy Cat, and Bunny all found their new homes.
Lavender Blue travelling to United States, Morning Glory is heading for Canada and Brambles the Bunny is hopping his way to the United States too.  Willow the Pussy Cat is staying in the UK.  Little Harriet the Hedgehog was unlucky this time, never mind though she is having fun with me!  Had orders for two more Brambles the Bunny both for the US so I shall be a busy bunny too! 

Then disaster struck - my little Cocker Spaniel Chloe really did become very ill and it was a dash to Vet on Monday morning and a trip to the hospital.  She had an operation for a hernia and so glad to say that she was back home by tea time.  These animals are just so resilient aren't they?

 This is little Chloe still asleep after her traumatic day, she is 9 years old and it was
such an anxious wait waiting for the Vet to call to say all was well.

Anyway she has had a good long sleep for most of today and I expect the licking of the wound will start tomorrow and she will keep me running around after her trying to stop her!  Her Sister Jazz is enjoying the walks on her own but is sleeping with her all night!  Chloe is on three small meals a day at the moment, Jazz is very happy with this arrangement she can always eat food - and if you have to feed one you have to feed them both!

The picture below is of Doobie a Teddy that I made in 2000!   He arrived back home with me two days ago for a visit to the hospital part of my workroom!  During home improvements in his new home he lost an eye, so Doobie has been back for a beautiful new pair of eyes.  I have brushed his lovely coat and re-arranged his smart ribbon and I am so pleased he looks so good after 11 years.

Today I packed him safely into a new box and sent him back to his home.  It was lovely to have Doobie here for a few hours and to know that he had been so well looked after.
Farewell Doobie I hope you enjoyed your stay in the New Forest.
