Here we are catching up with all our creative friends around the world and checking out what is on their desks this week...I love my Wednesdays.
It's been another bear filled week for me and I'm loving life....
I made these 5 for a friend in memory of her mum. They are to be given to the 5 grandchildren and are made from their Grandmother's favourite clothes.
This one was made from the same clothes but is being kept for a birthday present...I love the bright colours of this one.
I've finished my knitting and have sewn a piece of elastic to join the mittens so Louie doesn't drop one and lose it when he's wearing them. I really love how the little Ugg boots have turned out and am sure they will keep his toes warm.
These are my desks this morning...I have 4 more bears to cut out and make today...and they all need stabilising with interfacing so that's 32 body pieces needed...as you can see I cut out the interfacing in batches ready for when the fabrics arrive [the black bear shapes].
The top three are for a returning customer [always the best ones] and the bottom pic is a fairisle jumper to make a bear out of...I think that one will be rather nice.
I am really enjoying the Christmas surge of bears to make but have also had
- a really pretty bride to have her wedding dress fitting this week...it's needing major alterations and the wedding isn't until August so I will be doing the sewing in the New Year.
- a lady to have 2 skirts shortened and
- I have 5 pair of trousers to shorten and a zip to put in a pair of gents trousers!!
- Oh and I have to get my christmas cards ready for posting...they are all made now :-)
