CC cookie And Willopee win In The Taiwan Teddy Bear Show And Creative Design Awards 2011!!!


I am thrilled to find that both CC Cookie and Willopee have won their sections in the Taiwan Teddy Bear Show and Creative Design Awards 2011!!!
What makes this competition so special is that the pieces are sent over and judged 'hands on' by five international judges at the show and receive votes via online voting...a great mix and way to combine the Internet with a Teddy Bear Show!
Thanks to all those who put the time and effort into this competition each year! I hope to see lots of wonderful, exciting entries again next!!
Thank you YZ and The Taiwan Teddy Bear Association!!!
Hugs Linda, CC Cookie and Willopeexxx

Dad's Day Pic By Elkie...you gotta laugh :)

Well this should bring a smile to Brian's dial on Sunday....Elkie's place mat she made for him at Pre-school for fathers day!! It is a piccie of Dad sleeping on the bed and as you can see it says he falls asleep on the chair...I cracked up laughing when I saw this as kids just do what they see and Brian works in a job where he is up at 4am and off to work at 5.15am and then he is physically all go for the next 8-10 hours so when Elkie gets home his eyes are rightfully drooping and the head is nodding no matter how much he wants to stay awake to play it is a struggle on most days!! What a wonderful Dad he is to try and do what he does at the young age of 53....sssshhhhhh !! Don't tell him I gave away his age!!!!
We loves him very much!!!! So to all those wonderful Dad's out there...HAPPY FATHERS DAY GUYS!!!

Oh and I just had to show you my mothers day pic Elkie did for me! It is a pic of Me on the left making a teddy bear ( I am holding it in the pic) and Elkie on the right watching. Next to her on the left is a table with my felting foam on it....I JUST ADORE IT!!!!!
Have a wonderful Dad's Day Everyone!!

'Willopee' My First Little Orangutan!













'Willopee' is a 13 1/2 inch OOAK Lombard Bears Orangutan.....My first little orangutan!! He is made from a gorgeous rusty coloured mohair with a dark brown back and has beautiful soulful blue glass eyes from the UK. His feet , hands and inner ears are a lovely soft chocolate suede which I have hand stitched to make fingers and toes. 'Willopee's' face is sculpted needle felt which I have hand shaded with inks to give him all his character. He has my signature 9-way jointing system so he sits like an ape and he is filled with wool then weighted with steel shot so he feels like a real little creature.
                                                              Available on my website now!!

                                                                        Hope you like him :)

A happy trekker with her ducky who dropped down between some rocks up the top and we had to organise an emergency rescue!!!

What do you do when your mind in chogged up...........head for the sky!!! We headed for a place called Castle Rock last weekend and had a fabulous day!!! Brian made it to the top onto the lookout round Castle Rock, Elkie and I waited at the bottom of the steps up to it as it was a bit scarey for Elkie and then we headed for the easy lookout on the other side. I fabulous spot and an amazing view to reward yourself with after a lovely bushwalk up!! That's living I say :)

Chickies came home for the weekend!!


Well it was a busy weekend!! The ACDA's and twin cousins down from Perth to play... AND CHICKIES FOR A WEEKEND STAY!!!!!!!
Elkie had a ball this last long weekend. Their class has a fabulous teacher who hatches chickies out in the room each year and then the kids get to take them home over night if they would like!!
The first night she was awake at 3am asking if it was time to get up and look after the chickies. I said it was still night and we had to go back to sleep but we decided it best to get up and check on the little cuties anyway.....................
Twas gorgeous!!!!
