Aren't they adorable?
They are all completely hand crocheted by my dear Mum. She has been making bears for many years now. She used to always make the mohair type, but these have now been passed on to my sister and me for safekeeping, as she no longer has room for them to live with her.
These days she gains much pleasure in makeing these tiny bears, especially since they don't take up much room. Also they're great for keeping secrets, they never answer back, and don't cost anything to feed!
What more could one ask for in a companion?
I'm gradually getting on with my painted items and hope to have them up for sale soon. Hopefully I can get a clear space over the next week or so, without too many interruptions.
The necessities of life always interfere with the pleasurable creative activities.
If only there were more hours in the day!
