Shows over Folks, move along!

Well that's it, all over for another year! Was a great weekend out, lots of lovely bear and dolly people to chat to! Lovely customers with high praises are always well received too. It's great to watch people as they discover your table, the smiles on their faces as they meet each little chap. They point and giggle to their friends, "Look at this one, OH I just love his little toes" "This one has such a big belly!" or "They are all so different, how can I possibly choose!" My friend Veronika and I had a lot of fun enjoying others enjoying MY work! :o)

Below are some pics of my table, my bears with their awards, and a couple of show favourites!

Remember you can click on the photo above to see a bigger version of it!

This is Ezekiel, I made him to fit in this huge black velour chair! He's probably my biggest jointed bear! He was picked up so many times!!

Suzy and Suzette her sheep. Everyone wanted to buy poor little Suzette away from Suzy, I couldn't do it, they have to be together! (I don't know why, she won't tell me! LOL)

Here are my 3 bears with their blue ribbons! So pleased!
So now I will list a whole bunch of extra bears in online auctions. Having talked to some of the bear ladies I think I am finally going to try the 'less is more' approach to my table. So hard for me tho, I love filling up the table with colour and not hiding any of my work. But it is a bit overwhelming for the customers, often if they come back a second time they see things they never saw the first time! Time for a revamp!!
I'm back to working on my special project now too, so hope to have pics of him soon!

Glad the show was great! And look at your shiney ribbons! Congratulations!! I have to say though, I definitely have a sheep fettish and would likely be one of the ones who asked for Suzette on her own. Maybe you just need to make a flock of sheep with pizzazz to add to your group of bears with personality! Can't wait to see what's next!
