Hello all. I hope you're all managing to steer clear of all the bugs that seem to be about at the mo. My family seem to be dropping like flies so we've kept away from all as much as we can...so far apart from the cough/cold that we've both had for what seems like weeks we are both well enough to work thankfully....and for those that have asked me yes I still have the my sciatica but apart from the aches/tingles down my leg and stiffness first thing most mornings it's manageable thankfully.
So what have I been up to this week and what's on my desk today?
I've planned and plotted with the squares I had cut out ready for making a cover for my Memory bear file and then sewed them all together to make the length needed.
I found a teddy design I liked for the front and cut out all the pieces to applique on the front.
I machine embroidered all the pieces in place using a lovely random stitch to make him look like a 'Tatty teddy' and then machine stitched all the rest of the details it needed.
I've then wadded, lined and made the cover to fit my A4 file and
.....Ta da! I'm rather chuffed with the finished cover and it certainly looks better than the plain black file that it was.
The other thing sitting on my desk today is the 200th Memory bear that I made yesterday because Theo's mummy was too poorly to go to work so she stayed at home with him and I therefore didn't have my little playmate for the day.
This bear was made out of a special Grandad's jumper so needed stabilising with interfacing before making but was a really lovely bear to make.
I am expecting the items of clothing to make another 6 bears today and already have another order for a further 6 to come soon so I'm really enjoying making special memories for a lot of really lovely people.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit today and will leave me a little message to let me know you've called in....I will do my best to pay you a return visit between bears :-)
