All done, at long last!

Please meet "Murphy", my new design for the 2010 WA Teddy bear Challenge!
Both of them are also wearing my new signature scroll tags around their necks, the first bears in 2009 to have them.
They will be on display at the Teddy Tree bear shop in Perth, Western Australia as of next week and the pattern will be available to purchase in the New Year.
I will post some more details and photos of both bears on my website soon on the "Patterns" page,
Hope you like them, if you have any enquiries, please email me at .

At Last I'm Getting Organised!!

Well here they are, my new design, I'm pretty happy that they tie in the whole Russell Bears theme now.....I'm still working on my signature swing tags, but I think they are turning out really cute.
I am hoping to post them soon hanging around the neck of a new bear design that will be available as a pattern, and for those here in Oz, a competition scheduled for the middle of next year!!!
All the details will be available soon, so there will be plenty of time to get your entries completed on time.

"End of an Era"....Well, Sort of!!!

What a dilema this little problem has caused me, I have been dreading this moment, but the time has come for change!!
My little wooden teddy swing tags that have been part of every Russell Bears creation to date, are no more! I can't get them anymore, and the last one I had belongs to "Fergus" ( pictured below ), and now what am I going to do, they have been a part of my creations since the very first bear!
I have not been able to find anything that suits so far, so have decided to make my own, I have everything I need to start, just need a spare moment to see if it will work out ok!
Will keep you posted as to how it turns out, so please cross your fingers and toes for me, and I hope to show you the new Russell Bears swing tag soon!
Wish me luck...I might need it!!!!
