The Bear Cabin and snow update
The Bear Cabin. We made this little cabin a couple of years ago from a DHE kit. We covered it all over in rounded wood beading from the local DIY shop and gave it a shingle wood roof and an outside decked area. Inside, I made up some of my bears and turned it into a bear shop!
On the top floor is the 'staff room' :0)
Lots of my little bears, some made from chennile pipecleaners and some are needlefelted. I even wove the baskets from tiny basket cane!
Snow Update - Hywel finally got home at 8pm. Very tired and cold, he had spent 4 hours in the car, doing a 30 minutue journey! More snow fell overnight and many roads are closed, there is no public transport running, yet he was picked up for work in a 4X4 at 6.45 am this morning!! He works in a timber yard, hardly important to be open in this weather, but I am saying no more, except that I am disgusted by the owners callous lack of respect for their workers safety! The children have a day off today, their both schools are shut, so they are having a long lie in, lucky things! I am going to spend the day clearing snow, finding some winter thick curtains for the eldest daughter's flat (she is moaning the heat isn't staying in, as her curtains are thin!) and worrying untill Hywel gets home tonight... again!
Thankyou to everyone who left comments wishing us well after my snow rant yesterday and Debbie, I hope Ben gets to his exam ok.
Stay safe and warm everyone, Julia xx
