A gentle pace

I was excited to receive the mohair for my latest teddy bear, a beautiful dense German Schulte fur, perfect for an Autumnal teddy. It took quite a while to arrive from my supplier in America, but that wait allowed me time to enjoy the Summer and indulge in family and 'Paula time' ... something I find more and more important as years slip by. So, by the time my mohair finally touched down in the UK, there was a hint of Autumn in the morning air and I felt content, ready to settle to the very pleasant business of considering the first of this year's Autumn designs.

And here he is in all his honey coloured glory, my first Autumn 2017 teddy bear; a lovely fellow created at a gentle pace, in my own sweet time ... which is just the way I like to work!

Woody is now available for adoption from my website. Please click the link below if you would like to know more about him ... thank you!

Young Rodders

Young 'free to a good home' Rodders is maturing into such a handsome fellow and he is a sweetheart too.

That said, he is every bit as mischievous as he looks and after several failed attempts, perfected his leap onto my kitchen counter tops this week ... needless to say, nothing is safe from his catty curiosity now, including my knitting needles and yarn!


Autumn around the corner

You may have noticed I have been a little quiet on the teddy bear front  throughout our lovely Summer months, but with Autumn on the near horizon, I am happy to say, my urge to create teddy bears has begun to kick back in.

This week, I started work on a beautiful big teddy bear and after I have walked Polly and Betty along the riverside in the late Summer sunshine this afternoon, plan to hunt out my trusty bamboo needles to finish a snuggly scarf for him to wear ... which is the other great thing about Autumn being just around the corner, it's the perfect season for some knitting!

Mermaid Magic

I always think there is something quite magical about Cornwall, especially the dramatic coastline and beautiful seascapes.

Not only have I been walking in Cornwall with my family this Summer, I also squeezed in a little 'Paula playtime' with paints and ink pens. Lo and behold a little mermaid appeared from nowhere ... I can only assume that wonderful Cornish scenery worked some magic on my paintbrushes!

A family postcard from Cornwall

 So there I was, thinking we probably wouldn't manage a holiday this year and at the last minute we managed to find a spare week, invite the kids, grab the dogs and take off to beautiful Cornwall together! 

It has been an absolute joy to spend time with all my family in the place I always loved to visit while my kids were growing up.

And Polly 'n Betty have had a wonderful time playing on beaches, climbing cliffs and walking with all their favourite people!

My son, daughter and I have revisited old memories with great fondness whilst visiting these special places as a family and made wonderful new memories this year with my husband, Grandson, daughter-in-law and future son-in-law.

And speaking of my future son-in-law Neil, I'd like to thank him for taking care of our holiday memories by taking these beautiful photographs. I'd also like to thank my husband for making this holiday a possibility and everyone for seizing the opportunity to drive over three hundred miles to share time together under one roof as a family. It has been a very special holiday and one I will always remember with great happiness!
