A flying start to 2011!!!!

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!  I have just seen the list of winners for the 2011 TOBY Industry's Choice Awards and you could have knocked me down with a feather when I read my name on the list!!!!!!

Lonesome, a 2011 TOBY INDUSTRY'S CHOICE AWARD WINNER!

After much procrastination in the final weeks of November last year, I finally decided to participate and chose to enter one of my 'Careworn Collection' designs because this style of bear represented a new direction for me during 2010.  I also decided to try the 'small bear/undressed' category and hey presto, much to my surprise and delight 'Lonesome' has scooped a nomination!  

It's been such a difficult few months, so this recognition has really helped to give my spirits a boost and for that, I am very, very grateful.

Hey Dad, this one's for you x

Eep, hurray and bravo! I am so, so glad you got the TOBY for this bear. This bear is the one I like most of all from all your bears and so I think the jury has done a terrific job! And how absolutely wonderful to win it now, after the last couple of months which were so difficult for you :) Hugs, Ellen
