New mini bears

I have just finished 2 mini bears.Boswell is the gold bear and is 4.25 inches and Tiny is pale green and is 4 inches.I haven't made many minis probably only 8 so far but I must say they are quite addictive.They show every little error in your sewing and I find this a challenge in itself as you know that your work has to be perfect or it will show.
I am at the Norwich bear fair at St Andrews hall in Norwich on 23rd August and am busy trying to make bears although I am doing elephants at the moment.I want to make more minis but will wait until after the show as I like to pick up my fabrics,mohair etc at these events.Fabrics can be sent through the post including samples but it is so much nicer to be able to see the mohair and fabric and feel it.The only downside is I want to buy nearly every piece I see and in every colour possible and it is so hard to resist.If I won the lottery I think I would have a room full to the ceiling with mohair......oh well I can dream can't I!!!!
