I'm sure you must think I've been hopelessly distracted by my puppy Polly since she arrived six weeks ago, as I have had no new bears to show you lately, but I promise, there are some super new creations being brought to life behind scenes. I'm afraid I can't share these oh-so-secretive bears with you yet because one of the rules of the 'Teddy Bear and Friends Picnic' show is that all participating bears and friends must stay under wraps until the big day ... June 28th!
So in 'other news', Polly has been having a lovely time out walking and loves to bumble around the 'yellow field' close to our house - sad to say, this beautiful area is threatened with a housing development in the near future, which is such a shame ...
On Sunday we had a super day at my sister's home in Wormshill ... the dogs played happily in the garden, while the boys started work building a spiral staircase into the ash tree at the bottom of the garden and we girls did what girls do best, drank coffee, ate cake and nattered!
Cuddle time with Auntie Fo
Polly had a wonderful time in the garden with her handsome new pal Bugsy and his bouncy buddy Marley (my niece's labrador) and between chases squeezed in plenty of cuddle time with all her people!
Saying hello to Leah and Ella
Building a spiral stairway into the ash tree!
So as you see, we've had another fun weekend in the fresh air ... bit chillier this weekend though! (I wonder when Summer will arrive?) Back to working on my secret bears today and as Polly is pretty tired after her weekend chasing with the big boys, I think I'll be able to work for a few hours this afternoon, while her ladyship catches up on her beauty sleep!
