Hello You Lovely People,
The needles have been a-clicking over the Easter holiday and I have now finished the jumper for the boy bear. I have also found him a pair of jeans, which I hope won’t be too big..
I wanted to show you the two bears together, but unfortunately I only brought the one back with me, (her brother is safe, so not to worry). Now, I have a confession to make… I am an arctophile. Go on, look it up, I dares you.
I have quite a few Teddy Bears in my own collection. They often help me with my work and some of them have become quite accomplished actors.
This is Arthur:
Arthur is very special to me as he was a gift from my children one Christmas, many years ago. When he arrived, he had a ‘squeaker’ so that when you squeezed him he said, “Merry Christmas, Mum!” and sounded very much like my youngest son. Alas, his squeaker no longer works, but Arthur still has a special place in my collection.
I am introducing him to you today as this is his first modelling gig. I knew he would be able to stand in for ‘brother’ bear and so I could photograph them both together. Arthur is bigger than the real brother who is identical to the girl bear, so his top is slightly too small, but Arthur can carry it off.
Here they are:
So, there we are then. Outfits completed and in plenty of time for the raffle on 7th May.
Have a good week.
See you soon,
