Hello all.  It has been such a long time since I have been on this site.  The past several years have been tough for me.  I had put all of my bear supplies away and just hid away.  I do not like roller coasters, but that is what my life became.  Then to top it off, I had a house fire in March and all of my mohair was lost.  Well, I finally gave in and ordered a bit of mohair.  I just need to make a bear again.  I hope I remember how.  I was very pleased to see many familiar names here.  Hopefully I will not be a stranger any longer.

Oh my, Millie, sorry to hear you have had such a tough few years. Hopefully things are looking a little brighter! Making a bear is a good idea - will hopefully revive happier times.
Big bear hugs for you!

Welcome back, Millie.  I'm glad you decided to order a bit of mohair.  Now you can start creating wonderful bears again.  There is something about creating a bear or critter from fabric, stuffing, glass eyes, and love that warms the heart and takes on a life of its own.  Again, welcome back to TT, Millie, and we look forward to seeing photos of the creation that comes forth from your new mohair.

Hugs,

Gail

Well the little elephant is winging her way to Hawaii.  I really appreciate your greetings.  I am now working on a rabbit and feeling like things are looking up.  Because I lost most of my bear making supplies in the fire, I am having to move at a slower pace.  I think one of the things I really miss right now is the books I lost.  So if any one has suggestions for books that I should be on the look out for, please let me know.
