Dyeing for "Be My Valentine" on-line Bear Show

I am already in design mode for next years "Be My Valentine" Bear Show. 

It runs from 11th February until 13th February 2011.

The best Australian Artists will have their Critters for sale.

To keep in the theme I have been busy dying some different furs.


Of course not all Critters will be red but they will be in the spirit of the
Valentine theme. 

So here on a cold and bleak winters day I try to dry my fabrics on the 
Hills Hoist.

That is my miniature forest in the back ground were we have possums and owls 
feeding at night!
I have a favourite joke I play on anyone who dares to ring me while I am busy dyeing. When they say "How are you? " I always say "I am dyeing!" There is always an awkward silence before I tell them what I am really doing!

I would like to send some cold weather to all my  friends enjoying their summers.....and I have a number of requests. 

Yours in Bear Making


  1. Hi Wendy,

    I love your "miniature forest", it looks so peaceful, and the critters have a nice quiet place to reside. (o:

    Love the clothesline with all that beautiful fur "just hanging around". LOL

    Hugs, and have a beary nice day.
