~~~~Busy Busy!~~~Working on bears for teddybears worldwide show&etsy update~~~

Hi Everyone,I thought I should take a quick break on bear making to pop in with a quick update.I have been working almost non-stop trying to get my preview bear completed and photographed for the teddy bears on parade online show (deadline tommorow!)and my monthly etsy update so things have been quite hectic!Of course I had to choose a somewhat elaborate bear for the show page theme(do it every time lol)and I can't wait to share it with everyone soon.I have been working on the show piece alone for over 2 weeks and I just love the way it turned out. All of the artists participating in the show must keep their bear a secret until July1 st for the preview.I plan to have 10 available for the show and am currently working on 9 for my etsy shop update which I hope to list next week.I wont be able to have my patterns ready that I hoped to finish but look for them by the end of July~early August.I also have good news, my back is feeling much better and I can now function normally,thank goodness because I have alot of bears and friends to complete!So thats about it for now but I will be back next week with pictures of my new creations for my etsy shop.*~*Sharie

**Busy weekend**Yearly Rummage Sale and Pulled out Back!

I feel so bad that I haven't posted in such awhile,but some things came up and I didn't have a chance to update my blog.Every June my sister and I have a yearly garage sale,mostly for fun but also a way to get rid of that unwanted"stuff" that accumulates.I had to start sorting early last Thursday then transport everything to my sister's to start setting up.As anyone who has ever had a garage or rummage sale knows ~~~it's ALOT of work!~~~Lifting,bending,dragging ect.Friday the first day of our sale went  smoothly and we had a good time visiting during the event but Saturday wouldn't run so smoothly, at least for me.I don't know if I am prone to bad luck sometimes but the simple little task of bending down to place some doll clothes on a lower table caused   me to pull out my back.The pain was so intense I had to sit most of the morning,not being able to stand straight and barely able to walk.I have a bad back but have been lucky not to have had this type of episode for about a year(Thank goodness!!!!)I am still on the mend making a slight bit of progress  but still having pain and stiffness.Before the sale I was finally trying to make some patterns for my etsy shop and got some bears/kitty and an elephant  sewn  that would be used for the pattern pic but that will now be on hold for about a week.Funny thing about it is I now have about 15 bears and frieneds in progress needing to be completed soon!I will be back to show all the new pics when I get some of the creations&patterns completed.~~~~Sharie

It's been awhile since I had the chance to get any new bears and friends listed but I am happy to share the gang who...
