Me and Lex had a fantastic time at TBAI, it was so worth the months of planning, stressing etc. I feel honored to have been involved in such a worth while cause! As they say a picture paints a thousand words, so rather than waffle on about the event I'll share some of my favourite photos from the weekend!

The standard of the work was outstanding

Jet Lag...........

Well I'm back! Feeling less refreshed than I expected, what a holiday I feel broken, we did so much, saw so much, had such a fantastic time, its worth the complete feeling of exhaustion and jet lag today! I have so much to tell and show you, but need a few days to get my head and photos together, check back at the weekend I should be all sorted by then ;-)

In the meantime look whats sitting at my desk! You'd think it was Binky suffering from jet lag not me :-)

TBAI here we come!!!!!!!

Are you joining us?!
After what seems like months of planning, writing lists, sewing, sewing and more sewing, things are starting to come together for our "Great America Adventure"!

All the bears, mice and even an elephant are all packed and ready to go (to be honest they are better organised than me) and we all set sail (well flight really) on Friday! Me and Lex are having a few days before the show and after to see as much of the area as we can, we are all set for Connecticut, Rhode Island, Boston, Woodstock, Binghamton, Lake Placid and the the last few days in New York! I'm excited, scared, worried, happy, totally exhausted, you name it I feel it! But boy will it be worth it when I'm there! I'm counting down the days now.

Here's a sneaky look at part of my hat! its taken me hours
to make but I think it will be worth the effort

Anyway the bears were expecting me to put up my usual show preview so I had to explain that this time I wasn't going to do one, as the show has a preview hour on the Friday night I thought it was only fair to keep the bears unwraps until then, but I did think a few of them could have a little sneaky peek on here!

This little fairy mouse is not being rude, honest! I made her turn round ;-)

This little guy is my favourite out of the whole collection, if he doesn't sell I'm keeping him myself.

"Well Hello there"

So for now I'm signing off, I'll be back towards the end of August with lots stories and photos of my time away.
