And I am off and running again. We are settling into a routine around here. The children are doing a bit of summer school in the mornings and our chores right after lunch. After that, we all get some free time to just play around. I finally finished the bear I was working on. It is so cute! I have started the bunny. I am loving the design, I CANNOT wait to see it finished!
This bear has bent legs and can sit on the edge of a shelf or lay on his tummy with his legs in the air. It is pretty tiny, I used 15mm discs and tiny cotter pins to joint. The only thing I will change on this little guy is the fabric I used on the paw pads. I only had the right color in felt and I don't like to use felt with mohair. I need to get some ultrasuede or something similar.
The bunny rabbit has the cutest body shape and will have long front legs, huge back feet, and cute bunny ears. I am making it from cream colored string mohair with cream paw pads. I have the front legs nearly finished. I am looking forward to after school, lunch, and chores to work on it again!
Life is different around here, not only do we have five of our grandchildren for a while, but my husband took a new job and he is out of the house five days a week for twelve hours. I am thankful for the job as he was facing a layoff with the former job. We have so much to be thankful for.
I hope you have some time to work on the things you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate you. Please post a pic of what you're working on, I would love to see. It is almost my turn to post on the Patchwork Posse, watch her page for me!
