I have cheated you with facebook. Life with facebook is so simple and easy. And you are sometimes so difficult to handle. But I found a new tool and I hope that we will be happy again together and that we have a lot of fun now. Here is something I like to share with you – the wonderful anual Recklinghausen Light Show in autumn.

At the moment it is very hot outside but I'm sure next autumn is coming and so I went to the next wool shop to buy some lovely tweed wool. Wasn't very simple in the middle of summer, but here is the result of my efforts.
I knitted a nice short vest for me and unsurprisingly another one for Sweet Sophie (again a visit at the wool shop for more tweed in a different color) Sophies vest is still in progress.

Than I was thinking what to do, I found one of my patterns from the end of the 80s.
I started bear making 35 years ago with classic bears and funny bears with big noses and big feet, but when I saw a care bear I knew that this was the kind of bears I would like to create. On my blog (think it is under 2009)I published a photo that shows me making one of my first own care-bear-looking bears. These early Wild Things have only one joint between head and body and the body is sitting and made in one piece.
And so I have sewn a bear for the show from this old pattern that I made long long ago. But - how life goes- Sophie saw this little guy and fall in love with him and as a loving mother I can't say no. So this little sweet pink cuddly guy will not be in the online show. And that brings my back to the beginnig of this post - I have to go now to work hard on my bears.... I lost one.

And so I bought a new one (see it at the right side) from my favourite template designer April Lewis. If you think to buy a template for your auctions visit Aprils website: http://www.raggedydreams.com/ or look at her offers on ebay under the same name.
For my opinion April is one of the best. Her templates are beautiful and her instructions are great and if you still have problems she gives you a helping hand via mail, patient and professional. It is so easy to use - everybody can do it.
Yesterday I started my auction with an old template from April. But it is perfect for this case: Poor Mizzy is still looking for a new home and if you like to make a good bargain visit Mizzi on ebay
I reduced her price and hope that she will find a nice new Mum very soon. She is such a lovely dog, she doesn't loose hair, she doesn't bark and you don't have to make a walk with her on a rainy day. Isn't it nice?
Now I'm back to my new white faux fur bear and trimming the seams he is loosing hairs - I look like a snowmen in summer at the moment ;O(

Sometimes girls need a new dress. And it seems to be that Suzy wasn't happy with that she was wearing. So I created a new dress for her and hope that she will find a new mum very soon.
At the moment I'm working on a new website with Sweet Sophie. The old one is running for a couple of years now but I wasn't really happy with the result.
I couldn't upload my own background design, add paypal buttons, or place my photos were ever I like them.
Turning my blog into a website, that is very popular at the moment, I find a bit boring. And so I'm fighting with html, css and adding links and navbars.
Believe me I'm not a profi with all this things but I like the challenge. You could be curious if my website will run in a few weeks;O)
Suzy has a new home now!

Normaly I'm not a wet felter - like the result very much but it is to slow.
And..........it worked wonderful. I had felted a pile of flowers it in the twinkling of an eye.

Sweet Youki has been adopted

Most of the time I was in hopital this week - not as patient but as a vistor. Sweet Sophie had a
tonsillectomy, not unexpected but faster as we thought. From December on her health was very bad and this was the only way to recover.
To tell you something about Caesar... I'm very happy that he found such a good echo. I wasn't sure if you would like him. For all of you who missed him, I'm also planning a Panda and a Polar Bear with this more life-like look.
Cordial thanks to Waltraud Rickel and Joanne Livingston for their great turorials about teeth and claw making.
Sophie is at home now and I'm sure that we all find back to our daily routine.
Hope you have a nice weekend and enjoy it!

As a proud Mum I'm very delighted to say that my sweet girl started her own blog.
A few month ago she opened her own website with tips for drawing and painting mangas.
So her blog is a perfect addition for current events. Visit her under
