Tuesday was Gavin's birthday, he's the first of our long line of grandchildren. Seems just yesterday he was born and he has been in double digits for a couple of years now, WOW! He wanted lasagne for lunch, so I used my morning to make his lasagne and his mommy made a blue velvet cake as his favorite color is blue. Then he wanted to watch Lord of the Rings....pretty easy kid to please, really.
While they were watching the movie, I was steadily making progress on the panda. I had company for the "scary" parts, they made "dresses, bracelets, and necklaces" for the bears and found there were "so many dresses to make and so few girl bears". I think we finally converted a couple of the bears that were not necessarily girls!
The body and ears are complete. The arms and legs have their pre-stitching done and are pinned to be finished. I haven't started the head as the eye patches are a bit daunting...at least until I start! Hopefully very soon I will be able to introduce you to "Bamboo" as the girls have so aptly named "her". I had to predetermine that she was a girl so my granddaughters can "dress" her!
Hoping your day is fantastic and you spend some time doing the things you love and spend time with those you love! I may not be making much progress on quilts and teddy bears, but I am totally enjoying spending time with our grandchildren (and children as well!). Thanks for stopping by.
I appreciate you,
