not much snow...

....but....lots of wind!

so... no photos of my poor daffs bending under the weight..although I bet they got whacked flat with the wind.  It's rotten out there...so I didn't bother to go out and climb up to peer over the top of the patio wall.  They are on the other side.  Maybe later...the sun is trying to poke through....but, the wind is still about 60 kph.  It's been wild all night and half a day now... some slushy snow...and frozen water in spots.  Wear a helmet if you go out Yvonne!  (She fell two days ago and whacked her head) ... ouch.  Knowing what I know about concussions.... and my poor sister's plight after her fall all those years ago ... I worry about us all.  It's dangerous out there people!

So, hanging out inside is the order of the day.  And...for some reason I managed to get a decent night's sleep, so I'm getting a few things done.  Got up at 6:30... unheard of for me.  I'm more the 8 to 9 o'clock person... cuz I don't get to sleep before 2 a.m. most nights...even if I go to bed at 10:00 ...which is more frustrating than I can tell you.  Well, more frustrating than I can tell without some very colourful language!

I've been working on this little guy...















I've had his eyes in and out several times.... just couldn't get them looking quite the way I wanted...















Close...but, not quite.....

Finally.... today.... 3rd time lucky....















Otis  .....

What a nice couple they are ! Otis and Frikkles are so lovely, Vee. I know, it could be very frustrated when the eyes didnt end up where you want the to sit.... But you result was perfect ! You are my favourite bear maker, Vee ! Raffles says hallo !

I hope the weather will turn and let you have a warm nice Spring time.

Hi Vee,

Love little Otis and Frikkles, so sweet.
I don't blame you staying indoors, and I hope that the weather gets better there.

Happy weekend
Hugs

After my travel and computer woes I am just trying to catch up. Your new twins are darlings love them to bits. I do hope your storm has passed without doing much damage.

Otis and Frickles are wonderful Vee! The eye placement looks perfect.

You sound like me, I'm never in bed before 2:00 and quite often am up before 7:00. This is amount of sleep is not healthy apparently - but I am just not a sleeper.

We didn't get snow here but we did have high winds for several days.

Hugs,

Sue

Oh, I feel for you! I heard about that storm on the radio this morning! Wicked it was!

Those teddies remind me of babies with whispy hair. Cute!
