My swap to Linda was a little bear called Greentwinky Jnr. who is pulling along his Christmas tree cart. He's made from silk plush and has handpainted eyes. I had a lot of fun creating him and his little cart especially for Linda B.

Thanks to Sandi Smith for organising our TBACA 2010 Christmas Swap and to my delight my swap partner was Linda Benson from Benson Bears, so when the postie delivered a package from Tasmania last week I knew it was from Linda!!!. What a lovely surprise to find inside Rollo and Dink ! Rollo is made from a dense short alpaca and he has beautifully detailed paw pads and a little leather nose. He is 10cm (4") high in a sitting position. Rollo's friend Dink is a great little penguin standing at just 7cm (2 3/4") with wonderful webbed leather feet and a leather beak. He has a fine white detail around his little eyes which gives him a most charming expression. Both are wearing a red leather hat, Dink's at a very rakish angle, complete with a rusty bell on the end. They are just the cutest pair!
