Hello all. It's been a bear week for me this week. Many of you might have seen the Valentine Gift draw I had over on my Sewing by Annie Facebook page, well the number that was drawn out by the random number generator belonged to our good friend Catriona....many of you will know her because she comments on the blogs often [but as yet I've not managed to get her to join in the fun by writing one].
She sent me some Harris tweed to make her bear out of and here he is....
She's called him Harris and he is to go on his travels with them in their new Motor home.
Of course as she is also a good friend I felt the need to go the extra mile for her and......
....I made him his very own kilt and sporran. He wouldn't have been a true Scot without one would he?
Catriona also sent me a further piece of Harris tweed to make an extra bear for one of her friends so.....
....here's the other little bear I made for her....I really love the colours of this one and have a feeling he will be much loved and given a name too.
I went to have my hair cut on Thursday and the girls there asked to look at the latest pics of my bears. They loved them so that much that the lady who cuts my hair rang her hubby to drop a shirt off while I was there to have these three bears made out of in memory of her much loved dad. I normally match the checks but it was important that I got three bears out of the one shirt and it used every last inch so matching was out of the question but she's really pleased with the results.
So, as yet there is nothing more on my desk to share with you but I do have more expected this week.
I hope you have enjoyed your visit and will leave me a little message so I know you've called in and I will then do my best to pay you a return visit ASAP. Hope you all have a happy, healthy and creative week.
