Adopt One of the Last Bingle Bears

Hurry to grab one of the last Bingle Bears!  I have three bears available now at Silly Bears --  http://www.sillybears.co.uk/artists/index.cfm?page=115 .  I will have 3 more bears available for adoption in September/October and then will be taking a prolonged break from bear-making.

I've been trying hard to stay motivated to make bears, but it just isn't working.  My heart is being called to do other work right now.  I'm hoping that by taking a prolonged break that I may be able to begin making bears with renewed energy again someday.  But for now, it looks like the break will be indefinite.

I'm sorry to all of you who have been waiting so patiently for new patterns--especially of my award winners.  It's proven to be VERY difficult, one, to put such a large bear into pattern form, and two, to describe the techniques I use in making my bears so that anyone else can make one just like them.  I really wanted to be able to help you.  I just can't think of a way to do it well at this time.  I haven't given up quite yet.  My mind is still mulling over ideas for how to do it.  But for now I need to take the pressure off of me and put it aside.

Thanks for all of your love and support!  I really can't thank you enough!!  I'll post again when I have the next and last set of bears available in the fall.

Love and Hugs,
Cheryl
