Every cloud has a silver lining ..

Although our wonderful UK bear magazine "Teddy Bear Scene" ceased to exist after the July issue - a lamentably unfortunate turn of events which upset as many international bear makers as UK ones - it has left a small legacy in its wake .I mentioned that I was expecting my artist profile to appear at any time , so as you can imagine I was quite downcast to think that it had disappeared before making it in to print ! Imagine my complete surprise on hearing from Paula (lovely proprietor of AllBear , and custodian of British Bears on the Net) that my interview has seen the light of day after all ; in TBS' sister publication "Collect It" !!!
For the August issue a little supplement magazine , a mini TBS all about bears has been issued . A big "thank you" goes to Sophie Douglas for putting it all together .

So here I am ! (If you'd like to take a closer look just click on the pics and they'll appear larger.)

I actually bought the magazine as soon as we got in to Stratford ; suddenly it felt like a very sunny weekend :0) Expect pics in the next post ..

It's a lovely article Ruth and I'm so pleased it was published after all the trauma of the TBS closure. Looking forward to seeing your Stratford pics!
