Oh wow what a busy week I've had....and it's not stopped yet!! Today is my darling hubby's birthday and we have Theo all day today while his mummy is working....it's the first time in months because of the lockdown and we have really missed him.
I was really honoured to be asked by Doug to make some very special Memory bears from Shaz's stunning black wedding dress and long red velvet cape. It was a really emotional task but I have done my best. Whilst unpicking her cape I had a 'moment'....from somewhere [and I really don't know where] a cloud of confetti went up.....we gathered it up and I made a little net bag for it so I could put it in the extra special bear I made for Doug. I planned to make little rosettes to go on the front of each bear but then Jo said she would like to do something towards making the bears so she called round and picked up the fabric [the gorgeous red satin lining from the cape] and some of the beads to make them with. I set to and made the 11 Memory bears he was wanting and then sewed the gorgeous rosettes on the front of each one.....I'm rather pleased with the results and so was Doug [and he was very happy for me to share their photo with you all]. :-)
And this one was made using the special baby blanket that belonged to a man when he was a baby to celebrate the fact he is now becoming a dad.
Each of the bears I make come with their own stories and I really love making each one.
I have a long list of jobs pending everything from 8 Memory cushions for one customer and more wanted by another customer and another 6 Memory bears for several other customers. I have had weeks of making my Luna Lapin characters because I had no work and now suddenly everyone wants me this week. I have also made a batch of face masks ready for Phoebe to go back to school soon....she will have to wear them all day every day so will need several to keep her going.
If you leave me a little comment to say you've called by I will do my best to pop over to yours to see what you've been up to this week.
Take care and stay safe and well my friends.
