A Homecoming!!

Yesterday, I felt a little bit like parents must feel when their children have been away from home and return ready with big hugs. Now you know I don't have CHILDREN, but I DO have ... BEARBIES! :0) And one of my bearbies returned home from an exciting trip yesterday and it was so lovely to greet her with a big bear hug ... once I managed to untangle her from the postal packaging! :0)

My bearbie's name is Annie-Rose and she has had a little holiday down with the team of "Handmade" magazine because she will be featured in an issue coming out at the end of this month - how EXCITING!! Now, because she's going to have her photo in the glossies (Tee! Hee! Hee!) I can't show you a full photo of Annie-Rose, but I thought it would be all right if I show you a little sneaky peek. Ready???

Awwwwww!! How's THAT for a cute furry face! Of course ... I may be just a LITTLE biased here! Tee! Hee! Hee! Even though you can't see all of her pretty outfit, you can see Annie-Rose is a bit of a 'girly' girl from her delicate lacy collar and pearl brooch. And what's that she's holding??


A special Mothers' Day message that we should remember all year round. Annie-Rose is named after one of our nieces who is definitely a 'girly' girl, but it also has a little bit of my Mum in there too, as her middle name is "Anne" and I surely do believe that my Mother is a precious gift!! :0) So keep an eye out for this little media star in "Handmade" issue 27-11 which comes out on March 31.

And now since it's an overcast, showery, foggy sort of day again (thick, thick fog til just a little while ago and still in some lower parts of town) I'm going to spend the afternoon doing some Secret Squirrel stitching. Hope you all have a fabulous weekend planned that includes some time just for you to read, stitch, watch a movie, have a cuppa with friends ... or just have a well-earned snooze! :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!

Oh Cute, welcome home little one! Fog? I love fog just because we don't get it and it seems so magical to me, when in reality it is a bit hot and muggy right? Sitting and stitching with a nice cup of tea sounds delightful!
We are off to markets in the morning...Indie designers markets, though Collectorama is on at Nambour, I simply don't hanve enough pennies to go though..maybe next time...you can come too!
Happy Weekend....speak to you soon,

Annie-Rose! What a cute name she has and she looks adorable! I still have my "BEAR" (that's his name), but poor thing needs new clothes and a little "surgery". :)
