Just for the record, I am in no way connected with this person.  I am LynBlair here and lynblair on Ebay.  I'm American and live in central New York state.  My full first name is Evelyn and I go by Lyn, so you can imagine why this scammer person might pizz me off a bit.

Annoyed hugs,
Lyn

Oh my, Shantell!  You've got your hands full!  bear_wub   Perhaps you can call your local humane society, SPCA or ASPCA for some help.  They generally know how to deal with this sort of thing and will probably come to your place to help trap the mom and babies so you can get them inside.  I'm sure the mother will settle down a bit if you get them all into a safe, warm spot and make sure she has plenty of food.

Sweet kitten hugs,
Lyn

Is it possible that "Big Congratulations" somehow got cut off, ending up with "Big Con"?

Weeping Willow (Melancholy) - likes to be stress free, loves family life,
full of hopes and dreams, attractive, very empathetic, loves anything
beautiful, musically inclined, loves to travel to exotic places, restless,
capricious, honest, can be influenced but is not easy to live with when
pressured, sometimes demanding, good intuition, suffers in love until they
find that one loyal, steadfast partner; loves to make others laugh.

Hi Clare!,
Try Crow Soup, http://www.crowsoup.com/CraftersMarket.html.  They have a bunch of different artists and sellers with their own websites.

These are good, too.

Oh my gosh!  I just want to crawl in with them and cuddle until the end of time!  bear_wub   They are cute beyond words.

Although this has nothing to do with Kool Ade, it does have something to do with dye recipes! bear_whistle   I found this stuff recently and thought it was fairly interesting.

Does anyone know if there are other sources like this?

I just wanted to add this url, as the sizing would be perfect for smaller bears.  Apparently, the preemie sizing starts at 1 pound. bear_cry

Hi Shantell,
I'm adding my vote for the Doll's Dressmaker by Venus Dodge as well.  It's a top notch resource.  I have the Thistlethwaite book too and feel it's, comparatively, not all that great.  I have some issues with the fit and finishing of the author's work, but I'm hyper-picky about that sort of thing, so it may just be me.

If you're interested in tailored, fitted clothes, I'm not really sure there's a fabulous resource specifically for bearmaking.  I've managed to acquire just about every possible bear related book imaginable and still haven't found anything better than the Venus Dodge book.  On the other hand, if you're more interested in baby type clothes, like christening gowns and such, you may want to look into human baby patterns and scale them down.  If this is what you're thinking about doing, I'd suggest looking into some of Nancy Coburn's books as they're very thorough and the patterns are included.

(I've never done any business with this site, but posted the URL because they seem to have most of her books.)

Best wishes!,
Lyn

a picture of a friend's real bunny instead

I was thinking this is such an adorable, realistic bunny...and then I read the post!   :doh: bear_laugh  Everyone's bunnies are beautiful!  I wish I could own them all.  :clap:

Bunny hugs,
Lyn

LynBlair

Oh, Penny!  I hope your feeling better soon.  I'm so happy to hear it's nothing serious! 

Hugs,
Lyn

LynBlair

Thanks again for the kind words, ladies!  :hug:   I hope Aleta and everyone else with this nasty virus feels better soon.  It seems to be dragging on and on, but I think I'm getting used to it so I'm up and about, regardless.  bear_wacko

Big hugs to all,
Lyn

If you want a vintage style raggedy pattern, try http://www.sweetmeadowsfarm.com/index.php .  I have the "Attic Raggedies" and "Vintage Annie" patterns and they're easy to make yet really fabulous looking!  I'm not a raggedy fan, but the vintage look of these patterns called out to me.

Raggedy hugs,
Lyn

LynBlair

I'm not sure, but I would bet you could probably rent one.  I'd call some rental places to find out, and it would be fast!

Hugs,
Lyn

LynBlair

Oh, I'm so sorry!   bear_sad   This is so freaking heartbreaking!  Best wishes for the best outcome possible.

Big hugs,
Lyn

LynBlair

Thanks so much for the kind words!  I hope your feeling better very soon, Aleta.  Being sick is .....well.....so....I dunno...boring and annoying! bear_angry  There are so many things I'd rather be doing than wiping my nose and feeling lousy.  On the other hand, I have the perfect excuse to spend more time online with the most fabulous bear artists in the world!  bear_grin

Hugs,
Lyn

LynBlair

I can sympathize as I have it too, Aleta.  bear_wacko   I had my flu shot and it's just not fair, dangit!  bear_angry  You have my heartfelt best wishes for a speedy recovery.  bear_flower

Sickly hugs,
Lyn

LynBlair

I, obviously, won't be having a table, but I am going to go as it's less than an hour away.  I'm soooo looking forward to it!

Nearby hugs,
Lyn

LynBlair

I just love the word "ghastly" happy0188.gif , but not nearly as much as I love your bears, Sue Ann!  Big congratulations, regardless of their names. happy0141.gif

Hugs,

I'd much rather own A Silly Bear than a bronze Rodin.

What Shelli said!  :clap:  How in the world can anyone consider the exquisite work you, and others here as well, do as anything but art? fighting0071.gif 

Big artistic hugs,
Lyn

Edited to add that I'm throwing the rocks at your mean friends and most certainly not at you, Ms. Aleta.

LynBlair

That's what I was thinking too, Scott.  He's awfully young and I think he just isn't quite comfortable with himself yet. 

Hugs,
Lyn

The talented American Johnny Weir .. is a brat, and I'd like to smack 'im

happy0188.gif I agree, but he skates so beautifully!  Probably the most elegant and talented male skater the US has had for a very long time.  If he could just land that quad we keep hearing about from him, he'd have it all. 

I agree about Evgeny Plushenko, too, but I'm not really fond of his choreography and style.  bear_wacko   I loved Alexei Yagudin, though, so that may be part of it. bear_tongue

Hugs,
Lyn
