Here, there and everywhere ..

I am making a concerted effort to catch up with some bear-making this week because not only do I have a shop order to complete for 'The Bear Shop' in Norwich, I also have a fun online Summer show looming large on my calendar.


Hopefully I will soon have a new bear to add to my website too ...


Between my bear-making and baby knitting for my new grandchild due in October, not to mention researching how to patchwork quilt, I'm feeling as though I have unfinished projects here, there and everywhere at the moment! 


I really need to bring something to completion as soon as possible, so must get back to work and tackle that pile of teddy bear pieces first!

Fun in the sun

I'm being very British today, a polite post about the weather!


We've had a beautiful few days filled with warm sunshine ... a little too warm for Polly during the day perhaps, but perfect for a peaceful stroll in the evening.  Life really doesn't get much better than walking through woodland with sunshine filtering gently through the trees!


To keep her cool during the day, I confess to buying her ladyship a little paddling pool for the garden ... well, why not eh?!


And as the sun begins to set, we've been enjoying a few games of 'tug' and 'fetch' on the back lawn.  I think it's due to rain tomorrow, but never mind, it really is starting to feel like Summer here in Kent, so I'm sure the sun will be back with us very soon!

Sunday Sundae

Clear blue skies, steamy sunshine and an inviting waft of barbecued sausages rumblin' my tum ... Summer it seems, has arrived in the UK this Sunday!

19" Sundae

So today is the perfect day to introduce my own 'Sundae', a pretty pink and white alpaca teddy with velvet paws, which I've been working on recently.


As you can see, Sundae is a girl with a twinkle in her eye ... her hand painted glass eyes really bring her to life!

Sundae is now available to adopt from my brand new 'All Bear by Paula' website and can be found at: 


Update: Sundae has been adopted.

Memories of May ..

There's nothing quite like the scent of May blossom in hedgerows to evoke memories of my childhood ...


Spring walks in the Kent countryside are so beautiful this month.


The wild flowers are abundant and so delicate!


When I was a little girl my Dad would take me and my sisters out trompin' in the countryside in Spring and we'd return home with fistfuls of  cowslip, buttercups, clover and May to keep in empty milk bottles on the kitchen window sill ... they were happy days.


It's so lovely to walk with Polly at this time of year, breathing in the waft of May and remembering all those years ago.

All Bear by Paula dot com!

I'll admit, there were moments I thought I might have bitten off more than I could chew ... building a new website for my bears has been a steep learning curve!  But the more I thought about it, the more convinced I became it was time to teach myself something new and make a clean sweep to give my bears somewhere comfy, but a little more modern to hang out ...

A brand new website for All Bear!

I am hoping that, combined with the fresh new look, I have also succeeded in retaining a comforting sense of familiarity, so that you feel 'at home' as you browse.

Before I invite you to visit I must remember to mention the change of address! My old website will shortly be deleted, so rather than transfer that address, I decided to create a completely new one ... one I hope gives a more personal touch to my little corner of the World Wide Corner.

'All Bear by Paula' is now open and you are ALL invited to visit.
Please let me know what you think ... I'd love to hear from you!

www.allbearbypaula.com


And just in case you are wondering, I will have a new bear available on my website later next week.  Now this website is completed, I am looking forward to having time to sew again!

Covering all my bases

Having fun snuggled in my armchair each evening, engrossed in baby knitting.

Not yet sure whether my first grandchild will be a boy or a girl, so I plan to cover all bases in the months to come!
