As all bear mums know, teddy bears can be very inquisitive little souls, particularly when they suspect there is something going on that they don't yet know about and it would appear that Bertie Button is no exception.....
Liz and I are currently working on a very exciting Book Cover Bear commission, which of course, like all of our commissions, is Top Secret until finished and delivered to their new homes.
Because of this we have been waiting until enquiring eyes are fast asleep or out on an adventure before working on her - oops a little clue there - so I was somewhat surprised, whilst working with some lovely pieces of soft felt and colourful beads late last night, to find myself feeling somewhat uncomfortable, almost as if I was being watched......and then I spotted a familiar little face peering through the glass in my door !
Bertie Button !!!
Naughty little bear ! He was supposed to be fast asleep !
He knew he had been caught but he's a quick thinker is Bertie - especially when he's up to mischief of some sort - so when I asked what he was doing he said he had been trying to catch my attention because he had woken up when his blanket had fallen off and now he was chilly and hoping for a glass of warm milk, and, although he had managed to climb up to the door handle, he was too small to turn it .
Despite his late night Bertie was up bright and early today and very keen to borrow my magnifying glass .....apparently he has a mystery to solve and clues to find ..... I think I am going to have to keep a very careful eye on my very curious bear......
