Phew....I've blinked and turned round and here we are at another Wednesday drop in when we all travel the world through the blogs to see what our blogging friends have been busy creating in the week....whether it be paper crafting, painting or fabric crafting they are guaranteed never to be boring and you never know just what tips you might pick up on the way so why not pop over to Julia's for more details and link up to join in the fun.
It's a picture heavy post from me today cos there's been lots going on as always but I will be as brief as I can...
I was in need of new supplies so here are a couple of the things that have arrived this week to make me smile....
Two boxes of new threads and...
Three packs of Christmas fat quarters. Plus I had two huge bags of new stuffing to fill my memory bears with.
After seeing the lovely Christmas coasters on Jan's [LLJ] last week I was inspired to make a few with some of my new fabrics.
I've made a few Christmas minions to go on Christmas trees....they are just waiting for hanging loops now.
Here's my latest Memory bear made out of a little girls first babygros....I'm rather pleased with how she's turned out.
I have 4 more Memory bears to make at the end of this week out of a very special Great grandad's shirts to give to his 4 great grandchildren to keep in his memory....the idea is proving very popular.
This is my latest idea that I'm plotting and planning with.....Naked bear!
Some events that folk want to remember don't have items of clothing sufficient to make a whole bear with so I'm thinking of offering a naked bear that I can dress for them in clothing using the treasured items......
.....possibly a Christmas party dress or.....
....a pair of dungarees? I am still tweaking the pattern to get them right but what do you think of the idea?
I'm open to suggestions so please tell me what you think [as long as it's not too rude of course :-) ].
There you go I did tell you I'd been busy....and that's just what I've been doing between my customers sewing!
Please leave me a little message and I will do my best to pay you a return visit when I can. Have a great week.
