A wonderful year with lots to do

2011 is well and truly here, and I am desperate to get on top of everything.

I have always lived by a "to do list,"
but this has got out of control and I need to surface again.
With all that has happened in the last months of 2010, -
I have been super busy with work,
both my husband and I have been in separate car accidents,
and to top it off, ending up in hospital for Christmas.
I have decided this is the year for me! 2011
I have been busy using January to action outstanding thoughts from 2010
My patterns are now available on eBay, Etsy and my website via E Patterns
I have decided to go green and offer my patterns electronically
not only does it save postage time and money, but the planet too.
I have relisted all my patterns and relisted the Club from 2010,
so you can join and have access to all 12 patterns
and step by step guides straight away.
I have updated the photos on the website - great gallery photos
please stop by for a look.
I have many orders to work through and I plan to take requests again,
however, just a few at a time, so I can balance the requests
with offering bears for adoption on the blog in 2011
I know there are people patiently waiting,
I will be listing bears from time to time this year for you all!
Stay tuned, hopefully a little "peaches" will be showing any day now.
A beautiful mink peaches and cream bear.
May brings a Melbourne workshop at Bear Essence
preview passes available too, buy yours online
I will be stitching for this and hope to offer a few online
for those of you who can not get to Melbourne.
The next Online show is "Be my Valentine"
The sneak peek to preview the 3 bears will be on the 1st Feb
I have lots planned for 2011 (and a big surprise too)
so I hope you can all join me for the ride!
I also hope to be blogging with little updates regularly so you can see
what I am up to, being creative in 2011!!


  1. Wow!!! What a ride! It seems lots of people have been under the pump in the last few months, me included, hope 2011 is a positive and hugely productive one Helen!!!!!!!!!!!
