There's an awful programme on Apple Mac laptops called Photo Booth, which allows you take photos of yourself. It is sort of useful for taking very quick (and not particularly good) photos of stuff that you want to show people, but every time I go into the programme, I have this compulsive urge to take a picture of myself - "okay, let's see what I look like this time". It's ridiculous.
Anyway, I opened the programme this time to show you my new bear design. Not that you can see much, but it feels like I haven't finished anything for ages, so I wanted to show that I am getting something done! Unfortunately, although I'm happy enough with the pattern, I've only just got round to thinking about fabric. Turns out I don't have anything suitable (surprise, surprise!) so I've ordered some mohair and now I've just got to wait.
And nothing's happening with the crows either. I've found a US company that makes something close to what I want but, having sent me samples, they've now stopped talking to me at all - it's very frustrating!
