I had a fun trip to the UK and the Birmingham Trade Show....I survived hazardous driving in the snow and am now back in Florida.

I will be at the Bright Star Bear Show Sunday February 19th being held at the 
Crowne Plaza Westshore, 5303 W Kennedy Blvd, Tampa, Florida.  

We, the artists, had a challenge to make a particular bear pattern up in our own style and we could use any fabric.  It is always interesting when a number of people make the same pattern because it is surprising how different they all look and even how different they are in size.  This is my little chap, he is 6 inches and I made him from 100% wool coating.  I absolutely love wool and I was really pleased with how you can bearly see the seams on the face.   I darned his tummy and shaded his eyes, nose, ears and paws.    I gave him a sunshiney smile which is quite different from my usual style. 

I am hoping to see lots of familiar faces and just looking forwards to another fun show day.
