I have been away on summer holiday. We had rented a house boat which was placed in a big lake in Germany. It was very nice. Our son and his girlfriend came to visit us for a couple of days. I had planned to make a few miniature bears, however, to my own surprise I managed to make 6. I got totally carried away and had a needle in my hand most of the time. Of course, we also did some sightseeing, but sitting on the terrace of the house boat listening to the water and looking at ducks and geese was very nice.
