Well, here she is in all her glory, but I still think she is a he!! AND, I PLUCKED! I like the clean look of the muzzle. Next one, maybe only a shave. I love how the character comes out when you do the face. Until then, they are just wee lifeless things. Shane asked me today how I decided what kind of nose, smile, frown, or whatever to embroider....I told him they must speak to me. They usually portray close to how I feel...as you can tell, this one is a bit disappointed....my babies are gone now, I'm a bit disappointed. But he is pretty cute, and both are still nameless...any ideas??
And this may not make YOUR day, but it sure made mine. I came home to a 50 pound container of garnet sand....how cool is that???? I use this as weight in my tiny teddy bears. This will certainly fill a lot of bears. This sand is a bit finer than I am used to, I will have to accommodate for that. I don't want it seeping out through the fabric or seams.
I am already drawing another bear. I am trying to make one with a wide muzzle. I am hoping between Shane's genius and my creativity, we've got it. I know that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. I am hoping by widening the gusset, I can widen the face a bit. I also have the triangles cut and a few more lips done for the wedding ring quilt. I am not accustomed to the slow progress on a quilt, this is the first double wedding ring I have ever done, definitely not my last. I just need to understand they take a while to complete...no instant gratification!!!
Have a great day and if you can send good name ideas my way...just post here or on Facebook. I am hoping you have the opportunity to do something you love. Enjoy your day!
