My latest Far From Perfect Bear

I just listed this little blue bear online at and I've been working my way through a box of mohair fabric that I've collected in the last year or so. I'm now down to enough fabric for 2 more bears, then I'll see what kind of mini-bears I can get out of the scraps. Chores, making a living, customer requests and taking care of pets have slowed me up a bit on bear making but I seem to find time somewhere! enjoy!

Flowers in my back yard

After a few inches of rain the zinnias in my back yard came back in full force. When I planted this spring the sun burned everything to a crisp in no time. Now we are actually experiencing some cooler weather for a change and the flowers came up with different colors this time around. I hope the frost holds off but in Central Texas ya never know.

Art Fair Report

The below promoted art fair went off without a hitch! About half the artists showed up so that meant everybody got twice as much space for the money. I brought donuts for the morning & sandwich fixin's for lunch because we were a good ways out in the country. Sales were good, attendance was ok - any show can always use more buyers! Some of our church members had a table for the first time at any show ever & did real well. And, people became aware of our little Lutheran Church in Buchanan Dam, Texas. However, I think next year somebody else can head this up & I'll just help.
