Busy Busy Busy

The next two months are going to be very busy in the studio....
I have the Woodend Teddy Bear Show approaching fast on the 28th of this month, with the Mittagong Doll and Bear Fair hot on it's heels the following Sunday! I have a lot of sewing to be getting on with! Add into the mix the Christmas Treasures online show (Nov 16-18) and it will be head down and tail up for some time yet! I will also be teaching a workshop at Teddy's Bits following the Mittagong show, then heading home via Tooradin for more workshops at Bear Essence! I must be very wicked, as there seems to be no rest for me at the moment.
Meanwhile the garden is burgeoning.......with WEEDS that is. Consequently, my weekends will be spent trying to get things in order outside, before we can get our summer vegies on the go. We have blossoms on the fruit trees, though for some reason every pear has opted for a year off this year, (hopefully next year will be a different story).
A shout out to Victorian collectors! If you haven't ventured out to the Woodend Teddy Bear Show before, you should! It's a lovely day with a wonderful country feel, not too far out of Melbourne but far enough!(With scrumptious catering too!)
And those of you in NSW, why not head on down to Mittagong for a lovely day out in the Southern Highlands? Valma and the team put in a lot of effort to make this Doll and Bear Fair a great day.
Okay, it's back to work for me now. Hopefully I'll be able to come up for air from time to time :o)

To Make Up For........

Hello everyone! To make up for being a baaaaad baaaaad blogger I'm going to have a giveaway! Yes I know I promised one months ago, but well....... life got in the way! (Not to mention an overseas trip and terrible pain in my hands.)
And since Christmas is just around the corner, (almost) I'll be making and giving away two of these Christmas ornaments! So leave your comments here if you'd like to be one of the two lucky winners.
If you want to spread the word and get an extra chance in the draw, write about me, my bears and this giveaway with a link here, and I'll add your name twice to the draw. I will also be accepting comments on facebook, to be fair to those who don't have a blog.
That's it, I have to go walk the dog now. Cheerio for now and good luck!
I'll be drawing the winners in a month.....:o)
