Stratford weekend

I was so busy with the next set of deadlines last week, that I didn't have time to post, after the Teddy Bear Artist Event in Stratford upon Avon. Ashley and I had such an enjoyable weekend; and the fair was a really wonderful event where I had lots of lovely opportunity to chat with collectors and other artists.

On the way to Stratford we stopped at David Austin Roses for coffee,cake and a quick whizz round the gardens. It was noticeable that lots of the blooms were far behind where they had been at the same time last year.

We both enjoyed visiting Stratford itself. I found some gorgeous Antique jewellers shops - strictly for window gazing! After a lovely lunch Ashley snapped this pair of dray horses who were looking so handsome, and somehow more in tune with the immediate environment than the cars!

I waved goodbye to quite a few bears on the Sunday, so I shall start creating replacements soon. First I have Friends of Teddy to create for the Teddies Worldwide online show; including hamsters and micro dogs which I've currently sold out of.

The Frivols on the table managed to get some mini hugs of their own on the day! These pictured are still available.

Sounds like it was a lovely weekend.
I adore David Austins Roses. I would love to see his property. I have 3 of his in my garden. They grow quite big here in Australia, so you need to be careful of which ones you plant.
Happy bear making.
