Meet Simon....

Well its been a busy time over the last couple of weeks in the "Les Bears" household. After Gary left for USA I only had a few days on my own before my friend Judy arrived. And as you can imagine we've hardly come up for air!!! But while we've been chatting I've also been very productive. Suddenly I had orders from friends who wanted bears for friends, grandchildren and even great grandchildren. So with deadlines for these bears fast approaching it has been work, work work. But they are all finished and ready to go to their new homes. The bears were made from my patterns, Meg -12" and Huxley -14",very traditional and very big for me! Judy was kept busy knitting their jackets.

With all the big bears out of the way I've been able to get back to my miniatures and "Simon"was created. He stands just 2"/5cm tall and is wearing one of Judy's miniature creations - a duffle coat. He is just sooo... cute!!!


  1. Simon is adorable. I'm glad you got all those orders completed - they look great.

  2. Crikey Lesley, you have been a busy little bee!
    Love Simon, he looks so handsome in his knitted duffle coat.

  3. Simon is a lovely little fella!
    I have a duffle coat too. It's a red one.
    I like the photo of your hug.


  4. He is a little sweetie, with so much character, beautiful work.

  5. Just catching up with you...We've had a miserable time with our computer and just got it back ... Simon is another little treasure ...I love his oufit too!
