Emma's Bears - published!!!

My copy of the latest 'Australian Bear Creations' magazine arrived this afternoon. Thank you Mr Postie. (Or as Chelsea likes to call him 'Mona-bike MAN!')

I knew to expect my two bears, Eden and Quinn to be featured as a project, but I was totally unprepared for the amount of photos/pages/other articles I'd find my bears featuring in.

There is an awesome profile on my bear making history too, with a story about the death of my puppy Molly over 10 years ago that made me cry when I read it. And I wrote it. How sad is that! :P (the relevance to the bear-article is explained in the rest of the profile! I don't usually like to throw horrific tear-jerking stories in to mess with people! :P).

Fortunately I managed to get these photos of the magazine while it was still in one piece. Somewhere in the 2 mins after I'd put it and the camera down, turned my back and gotten distracted by something else - either Chelsea or Oliver (they're both as bad as each other at the moment) got hold of the magazine and did a bit of editing of their own.

I found it in numerous pieces under the table!

I've since stuck it back together with lots of thick sticky tape, but I think I'll be making a trip to the local newsagent this week to buy a nice new 'keepsake' copy!

Oh - and as part of the Quinn and Eden project - the magazine includes my pattern. So you can have a go at making your own!
