I share my work space with my Teddy Bear collection. I do limit myself to how many I buy but there is something so irresistible about a cuddly teddy bear.
I found this one recently in a restaurant with Bear in it's name and couldn't resist buying. Although he hasn't found his place on a shelf yet, he sits in my chair, so to use my sewing machine I have to move him.
Bears are a touchy, feelly sort of thing so some just talk to you, or nestle up and say "buy me, please take me home". But they are taking up to much of my needed room so I may have to find a better place for them. Can't you just see stacks of fabric and beads and all kinds of craft supplies filling all those little shelves and nook's?
