Sorry about how quiet this blog has been lately. We've been madly preparing for the eBear online bear show happening RIGHT NOW! We have 12 brand new bears ready for adoption.
The show will be open all weekend, and we'd love it if you popped on by. Just follow the link earlier and click on our preview bear Poet (shown below) to be taken through to the full stall.

This little sweetheart is a custom order we finished recently. She is made in our 12" Sugar pattern (just altered to make her panda-style as the original pattern is just for a single colour bear) and using a piece of long 40mm curlylocks style mohair for a very fluffy appeal!
We had attempted to dye this piece with a pastel-tipped effect, but the colour made it's way down the pile and had other ideas about how it wanted to look. So instead, we ended up with a piece that had a freckled rainbow look to it. It worked just beautifully for this pretty girl.
We don't have any more left in the rainbow-dyed colouring, but there's a few single-colour dyed pieces still in our store.
Tiffany has been adopted.

Last week we had our first family holiday that involved flying with the kids! We decided to celebrate the many July birthday's in our household by spending a few nights in Sydney and doing the touristy thing. The kids were great little travelers and we did as many activities as we could fit into our days while we were there.
Then we got back and it was straight into custom orders again! This little premmie-sized baby bear is 'Billy', and he was made for one of our Canadian collectors. He's made using the same idea as our full size baby bears (with the heavy head, weighted limbs, baby outfit, nappy, rattle etc) - only more petite!
And then - the day after we got home, our newest, MASSIVE new shipment of faux fur arrived! All of the new pieces have now been added to the website if you're interested in any (there's just over 20 new pieces, I haven't included all the photos here, just the most outrageous!)

This sweet darling is one of our latest custom orders. She has been made using our Lyric design and our Polar Curls kid mohair (with part of her left the natural ivory white and the rest of her dyed the palest silver-grey). Her new mum called her Sapphire, and chose the accessories you see for her - big white feather wings, a matching lace headband and the gorgeous galaxy pendant.
Sapphire is adopted.

This week, while we've been surviving the second week of school holidays and waiting for some custom-dyed mohair for upcoming commissioned bears to dry, we decided to finish off these BIG rainbow bears.
They have been sitting there for a while now, waiting for their opportunity to be jointed, stuffed and finished. I had originally planned to have them finished in time for the next eBear online bear show (which is due to open in around a month), but was too excited and wanted to show them off NOW! lol
The larger bear (23") is Naiya, and the smaller bear (21") is Nirvana. Both have now been adopted sorry.
* Nirvana was made using a piece of our long pile hand-dyed rainbow mohair and our 'Belarius' pattern. And Naiya was made using our 'Lyric' pattern enlarged to give a 23" bear instead of the original 16", and a mix of hand-dyed and ivory mohair.
