Featured Artist

This month yours truly is the featured artist on the TBACA website. So, if you're a little curious and would like a little insight into what makes this ol' girl's mind tick, pop over to and click on the link in the navigation bar at the top of the page. It's amazing, really, trying to write about yourself. Even with a set of questions as a guide, I found it quite difficult. I think Blogging has made things a little easier, it has helped me to sort my thoughts and to restrain my waffle. I know how I feel about things but I find it hard to write my thoughts, and there is always the nagging feeling........ "who wants to know anyway"!

Here are a couple of photos taken at the workshop in Somerset, I'm deep in coversation with Susan's five month old Spaniel, Harry. He's such a lovely little fellow with the most amazing eyes, which are almost green! He was alot of fun to have around, though he did prove to be a distraction, particularly for those of us who have an overwhelming love of dogs, which I must say were the majority of those in the room! :)
The current issue of Australian Bear Creations magazine has a nice little article on bear artists' pandas, and my panda Yi Min is featured along with some other great pandas. The article is also a bit of a tribute to Pauline Wong (Wee Paws) who lost her battle against cancer a while back. Pauline was a master at creating beautiful little pandas and I'm lucky enough to own one of her gorgeous little masterpieces, a very treasured member of my small collection of little bears. That's it folks, I have to go get sewing as I have a show to go to in three weeks.


  1. Hi Linda ,
    Yes , I know what you mean about "restraining waffle" ! I often write something then decide it needs editing ... and finally deleting !!
    Gorgeous doggy - my family had a beautiful Springer :0)
    Mini Hugs ,

  2. Wonderful article Linda, beautiful place you live in.

  3. I love to read about people as we are all just human but all have such interesting lives, yours made more so by your wonderful bear creations! I think you should publish a book on your bears and bear making...what a great idea don't you think!!

  4. Cove the 'deep in chat' pic Linda! The panda article was very interesting ... my copy arrived here in the UK last week. I really like this mag!

  5. The mag has come in leaps and bounds with Sandra at the helm, Paula, your article was a great read. Linda I've been asked so many times when the book will be out, lol! I'm just not sure if I have it in me. Perhaps I should just start writing stuff and eventually it will emerge........
