Wow! I'm not exactly sure what I did, and how I did it, but I think there was some kind of update involved. Anyway, now my pictures are so much bigger, and they don't have those annoying borders round them. It's fabulous! The question is, do I go back and alter all previous pictures?
I haven't posted for a while, so I just wanted to update. I have been working hard, but I'm still not nearly ready, and the craft fair is next weekend. I suppose I can always raid the Art & Craft Centre for bears to fill any gaps, but I really, really wanted to take stock that was entirely new.
I wobbled a bit for a little while - struggling for new designs. Then I thought, this is ridiculous - it can take several weeks minimum to come up with a new design I'm happy with. There's no way I have the time to create several of them before the craft fair. So I'm taking a different tack and using it to sort of look back on the most successful designs. Or as many of those as I can make in a week anyway! The first of these is the panda design. I have made four small bears, but the fourth is not very good, so I'm not showing it here(!) and I won't take it unless I desperately need something to fill space. And then I'll sit him behind a taller bear.
But these are the three good bears, anyway.
I'm currently working on five mini bears in what I have called my 'hoof' design - hopefully they'll be finished tomorrow. Then I would like to make another antique-style polar bear, because that design turned out really well. I would like to make some smaller things - the kind of stuff you can buy with a couple of quid in your pocket - but I'm out of inspiration (and time).
