Christmas Treasures

I have been busy getting my bears made for the Teddies Worldwide Christmas Treasures online show and I have just finished getting my sales page all ready for the start of the show at the weekend. There is still time for you to head over to the site and cast your votes in the preview, if you haven't done so already.

This is Buloh, he's my preview bear. I'm not allowed to show you any of my other bears, you'll have to wait until the show opens to see what else I have on offer (if you head over to the site you'll find the start time)
It's a busy time of year, with the garden needing urgent attention and with Christmas looming very large. I have one final trip to Victoria this week for workshops at Bear Essence in Tooradin and then I can be at home for a while and try to make some sort of order in the garden and also finalise a few Christmas commissions.
We have had a very strange start to Spring, in fact some days it still feels like Winter hasn't quite left us. I have had to be very imaginative with our asparagus harvest this year, we've been eating it nearly every day and still I was able to get some into the freezer (hopefully it will be okay, I haven't tried freezing it before) All too soon the harvest will be finished though.
I have also been making good use of my birthday bicycle, taking it out for an hour or two most days with the dog running along with me. It didn't take long for my fitness level to increase, and after changing the saddle for a nicely padded one, my bum isn't sore any more either!
I hope you'll all make some time over the weekend to visit the show, there will be some lovely bears exhibited. I had better go and pack my bags for tomorrow's flight to Melbourne.
Thanks for stopping by, I'll try to have some more interesting news for you soon.
Take care!
