Hi to all  bear_original I exhibited on a christmas market in a city located 20 kms far from my home and sold 5 bears and 2 dolls bear_grin If you want to see wich ones (they are still on my website for a few days ), their names are:
Lilly
Bernard
Fantine
Filou
Tommy
I'm so happy also because i had so many compliments. There were laughts and smiles from every kind of people, young children or old. They were thrilled to know that both bears and dolls are hand made. Because i hate to lost my time by doing nothing, i brought bears to work with, and patterns, and pieces of mohair , so people sawed that i really sew them myself. I also explained the difference beetween artist bears and manufactures bears. One day, i've met an american who took  pictures of my work bear_grin  bear_grin it was very fun. i had good time to listen people comments. Oh, i also brought the Patti's book in wich i have a doll pictured and the original doll and use to say that a little bit of France is represented in the book bear_grin  bear_grin  bear_grin
In the beginning, i was so afraid to exhibit that i asked to my husband and one of my sons to always be with me, but finally, i choose to be alone in the big part of the time and sold all the stuffs unaid. Have all a nice day bear_wub

Je suis heureuse que les gens ont aime les ours!  (It's supposed to say this: I am happy that people like the bears)  My French is getting rusty although I minored in it as an undergrad.  Your stands looked great.  J'espere que tu vas vendre beacoup d'ours en 2006 (I hope that you are going to sell a lot of bears in 2006).   a035.gif
