Show prep for the 'Teddy Bear Artist Event'
I've escaped from my workroom this morning ... you see, the sun came out and as there wasn't a cloud in the sky, I decided to plonk myself in the conservatory with 'This Morning' on the telly to finish knitting a cute little cardigan for one of my show bears. The weather is so beautiful, I'm even wearing shorts today!

I thought you might like to see how I'm getting on with my show preparation with only two and a half weeks until show day. As you can see below, I've left my worktable under a pile of 'in progress' bits 'n pieces, so will need to have a big tidy up soon because I don't like being in a mess (albeit a creative one) for too long! By the way, if you look closely, you can spot the head of my pink bear (above) lolling on the table.
In progress ... my work table is buried under there somewhere!
I have a few show bears with all relevant limbs and ears attached, waiting patiently on my workroom shelf for their final titivations, so at least I can see some progress now ... there's still a long way to go before I'll be completely ready for the show though!

Well, on that note, I suppose I had better get back to my knitting needles and make the most of our lovely May sunshine!
