Thanks for the warm welcome I've been working my way through the forum and there's some really lovely bears being made for the Stratford show, so I think I'm going to con my hubby into driving me down there (That'd be a coffee house and cake payment then!) so I can see them in the fur. I'm picking up on a real sense of excitement about it which is nice given that so much has happened in the bearworld to cause people to feel flat of late!
Can't wait to get to know you better either, everyone here seems like such a friendly bunch and it's so nice to be able to share a passion with others of the same interest.
Sue I had a nose on your website and have to say...Emily is still my favourite, I love the colour of her mohair.
SueAnn I love your panda DanDi, he's got such a lovely smile and Dimple is unusual, she's great.
Lisa, small world! Which part of Derbyshire are you from? I'm in Tibshelf, twinned with Royston Vasey lol
Pauline, Christine, Pat and Jane, big hello's, thanks for making me feel welcome.
