it's been far to long

I have been so busy the last couple of months working on my new shop, it is going really well. I never seem to stop for to long these days.  I have not worked on a bear since the last bear show in June! I miss them so much. I hope to pop in more often now the shop has settled down.
the above photo is the shop I do on sundays at Old Petrie Town on the North side of  Brisbane (Australia) I have another shop now that i do during the week at lawnton which is also on the north side of brisbane.
hope you all have a beautiful weekend Lisa

Wonderful bear show

Good Morning ,

It's taken a couple of days to get over the bear show, it was a two day show and Julie and I had lots of fun and got to catch up with some friends  and to have a good chat with everyone.

here is the lovely Alison from Alisons bears

she does the most amazing bears, I fell in love with one but by the time i went back to buy her she had sold! So Alison said she would make one for me.

Pat was next to us again with her gorgeous golly's they are just amazing.

here are a couple of julie's bears you can visit her at bears and old lace

we alway share a table when we do the bears show's

What I am working on

I found some porcelain doll head at a recent doll and bear show I have been wanting to make one of these bear/Dolls for so long so this is the first one I have come up with

I have been busy for the last week working (Playing) with a new pattern to make this little bear doll which I have named poupee which is french for doll. it will need some refining but I am in love with this one. I have made a french hat beret for the doll bear but I think I will also need to work on my skills at making hats. 

Just gorgeous! It has been lots of fun playing with this one. Still a bit more work to go. I just wanted to share some photos with you all. Have a beautiful weekend Lisa

Working on some new dolls

I made this doll about 2/3 years ago for a customer and loved the candy striper doll so much I would love to make one using my own pattern, I used a raggedy old annie pattern for her. I love her patterns I used them a lot along with sweet meadows farms pattern and threadbare primitives before I started making my own patterns,  I love nurse annie dolls, along with lots of others.

Well I gave up on making and selling dolls last year as I can't seem to sell or make some money from them, I really missed it so I thought this year I would pull out the design book again and get to work on a couple of new dolls, so hopefully in the coming weeks I will have some new dolls and photos for you. I am not sure which will come first! i have been doing lots of thinking.
