A few updates.  First, the last window in the kitchen - which is tiny compared to the rest of them!

Then the new fridge and freezer arrived...

And, on a side note, I finished a few more bears for the craft fair.

I've been a bit of a failure this time around.  That's, what - seven bears made for the fair?  Seven mini bears no less.  It doesn't seem like very much.  I just got started much too late.  I have today to mooch around worrying about it all.  There's a bear that I started and which went terribly wrong which I need to try to sort out.  And I need to try to come up with some kind of plan for arranging the stall.  And of course, if I can make any more bears, that can only be a good thing.

Then tomorrow, I collect the bears from the Art & Craft Centre in the morning and then we drive over to Clare to set up the stall in the afternoon.

I'm not really looking forward to it but there is a good side.  It has given me something to work towards in the last week - and even if I haven't made as much as I'd like to, I've had a lot more ideas.  And not just vague ideas, but ideas that have become pretty solid plans.  Perhaps this is what I'm lacking the rest of the year round - some definite, concrete target.

Aaah, quintets. They are cute, how big are they?
The kitchen is coming along nicely. I love how light and airy it looks.

Wow, that first word that I had to type was impossible. I don't think a robot would have worked it out!
The second was a bit better and I think I have got this one - let me see.

Hi Polly - you are live on the BigFeetBears blog ("please don't swear"). No, apologies - I'm sorry it's so difficult to leave a comment. I have it set up so I can moderate the comments before they're published. I guess I should turn it off - there has never actually been any need for it - but I'm not sure if that would actually make any difference.
