Gotta love Garage Sales!

Since it was Saturday morning I decided to go garage sailing to look for treasures. I managed to come across three very old pink angora knit cuffs and collars that the home owner had from when she was a little girl, so they might be a little over sixty or so. I thought they would be perfect for a few vintage style bears once I size them. Neat!!!!

I'm so sleepy right now! It feels like my whole body is one big tired ache! Can't wait to hit the sack tonight!
I had a busy day today, went to see my mom and I used some of my new fabric to make a little topper for my livingroom drapes.
The other day I was in Fabricland during their surprise 50% off sale and found a lovely cabbage rose fabric for $4 a meter! I was ecstatic! The clerk told me it was now on sale for $2 a meter! I said 'give me the whole bolt then!'. There ended up being 16 meters on the bolt! Who knew?
But it's okay! Before I was separated from Aaron he never let me have flowered patterns anywhere in the house! So now that it's just me I can go crazy!
I can cover my dining room chairs, make pillows for my bed and toppers for my windows in there too! Wow! It may take me forever but when I'm ready to do all that I'll have my fabric all prepared!

Another hot one!

I worked on a little bear today. I was inspired by some lovely fabric that I picked up yesterday that I think will make a pretty dress. I bought the same fabric in several colors so I might make a panda too!
Here's what else I'm working on, a square of crazy quilting. I go a little 'crazy' with the embellishments!

Happy Saturday!

I went to my brother's 50th birthday lunch today! Wow! 1/2 a century!
Stopped at my favourite antique barn for finding little treasures on my way out. Didn't find anything for the bears but enjoyed trying on hats, eyed some chandeliers for my dining area and then scooped a Double Bubble gum on my way out from a tray so I could practice some serious bubbles in the car on the way home! Took awhile to clean the mess off my face though!
I thought about settling down to work on a bear in my little balcony garden with Wilson (it really is worth paying the extra for Miracle Grow), but then I thought a bike ride might be in order since I ate so much at lunch!
Still the bears patiently wait...

Another Webshow Complete!

Six bears are on their way around the world! I'm posting a pic of the bears sitting in their various boxes just before they began their travels. The pink flying pig at the bottom is on her way to Finland! The pink and cream panda is on her way to Moscow, Russia! Wow! I've also posted a couple of elephants I've made and the two flying pigs I made for the show. Only one was adopted so I will be keeping the other one! Yay!
