Australian Bear Creations Magazine!

I was both delighted and thrilled to open the latest issue of Australian Bear Creations mag.,  received in today's post and see they'd published my letter to the editor featuring some of mum's thread crochet bears she's made from a pattern, by Berta Hesen-Minton,  featured in their previous issue.  

Here are some photos of her bears. The little ones with the hats are the ones I referred to in my letter. Aren't they just the cutest? I think she's done a great job!! She is now in her 85th year and still manages to make lots of little bears as well as other crafts and patchwork.

 I know this was just a letter to the editor and the photos they published were quite small, but it made my day and I know it made Mums also. 

 I hope I'll still be able to create like that if I make it to 85!!


  1. Your mum is very clever and they are adoreable!

  2. How fun to have your letter posted and those little bears are adorable!

    How wonderful to have your Mothers sweet bears, featured in Australian Bear Creations. Congratulations and always a thrill to be featured.
    She is so clever and neat to see her doing the work. Also love seeing your profile photo, always neat to be able to put a face behind a name.

    Happy Tuesday
