Running in Circles

ACK!  What have I gotten myself into?!  I have five bears in various states of being.  My bear with the felted face is the closest to being done--after 3 complete face changes, I'm finally satisfied that it looks like a bear and not a mouse or hedgehog.  However, I have had to put that bear aside so that I can work on others.

I have been requested to have some of my bears at the Bear Scout Trunk Show at Teddies of Mt. Holly on May 16th.  I feel VERY honored, but I also am feeling a bit crazy.

I'll try to get some photos posted when I have access to the camera again--it's all packed away and reading to go for a photo shoot that Matt has tomorrow evening.  In the meantime, I'll try to hold myself together and try very hard not to fall in love with one of the bears I'm making (although it's starting to look like a lost cause).  I've never felt compelled to keep one of my bears for myself--why now?!



  1. Bwa ha! Isn't that the way of things? You try and try and try to make a bear for yourself, and when you least suspect or want it... the little bugger shows up!

    I wish you luck, can't wait to see what you've been working on!

  2. Good to see you are busy Cheryl ... hope your show is successful for you.

    Warmest Hugs,
    Sandi @ Bearly Sane

  3. Good luck getting everything done in time, I'm sure you'll manage it. I just sold one that I'd really fallen for, it was tough, but I know he's now in a good home. And I still have the photos to look at lovingly!

  4. Can't wait to see them all!! :)

  5. Hi Cheryl
    Just popped by to say hello and thanks for following me.
    Congratulations on having your bears chosen. Hope you get all the work done.

  6. Can't wait to see what you've been working on Cheryl! Good luck with the show. I've just sold one of my bears that I absolutely love! At least I have plenty of photos that I can look at and I have my new puppy "Casper" to take my mind of it!

  7. We missed you at Teddies of Mt. Holly, but glad that you'll have a few of your things at the Clarion Teddy Bear in the Heartland Reunion!
