long time no blog : )

Hi every one!!

hope you are all prepared for Christmas..... I still have to wrap all the presents but that's my fav bit.. apart from the un wrapping :) and the roast :D... he he.

I actual had the roast last night.... as my family all have partners and are spending time with them this Christmas i am spending Christmas on my own : ( well I'm kinda looking forward to it I live in house with 6-9 people so time on your own is hard to come by.

well I got a new job and have been working super hard so i have not had to much time to work on my bears..... but I have done allot of tweaking patterns and try new things and will be selling some bears in the new year.

one of the new things I have been doing is making sock monkeys :0

they are sooo cute,..,..,.., the picture below is my first monkey called +Oogaly Boogaly st Claire+

i just love him!!!

well hope you all have a very merry Christmas x's Matthew

The BIG Flop :)

hi guys the end of my 2 wees is finished :( and I'm getting Ready to go back to the real world! so as you can probably tell by the title i didn't finish the big 10 but i have finished 5.... its not that i didn't work hard enough its just that i am to hard on myself.... i have completely sewn 14 bears nearly made 11 but only finished 5..I'm sure i will finish the rest some day but if i am not 100% on the bear i will just put it to the side and start another. On the plus side i did try lots of new things and i lent a lot i have even more stuff to try out and can't wait to start :) i will put some pictures up for you tonight or tomorrow...

smiles from *BOW*

I was sitting on my bed the other night just checking my e-mails when i noticed something moving out the corner of my eye!! when i looked their was nothing there?? just my usual shelf of bears.... nothing strange... except when i look closer *BOW* who has been sitting there among some other crazy bears had moved and instead of looking straight ahead he was now looking towards me. I immediately ask my family if anyone had moved him, the all looked at me as i was crazy and told me they hadn't touched it... sooo?? how did he move?? i guess i will never know for sure but i am a strong believer that bears have a life off their own, one that we will never be able to properly see but we get glimpses of if we are really lucky :)

i would love to know if any thing like this has happened to anyone else?

let me know

good night x's *MATTHEW*
