I’m sitting here pondering right now if I’m the only person that takes ‘bear shells’ on holiday with her. As part of my drive to get lots of bears ready in time for The Great Yorkshire Teddy Bear Event in November, I’m sort of ‘batch’ making bears at the moment. I have 4 Woods that I’ve now done all the machine sewing on, and I’m taking these ‘shells’ with me on holiday to France this week to finish the head gusset and paw pads, then stuff and joint them. Is anyone else mad enough to do this, or is it just me that works in this bizarre way? Answers on a postcard please… ;o)
Hopefully I’ll be able to show you them all when I get back, plus another commission that had to stay deep under cover until today…
Hmm, wonder if the flatmate will take up the pattern transferring on the 11 bears in progress back here while I’m gone lol
I do it too. There is always idle time. I would rather use it to make bears than to sit and watch TV.
Me too, I was cutting out mini bears at the hairdressers today….otherwise that's a good couple of hours wasted sitting around doing nothing:-)
I never work anywhere but home. I stabbed a ten inch toy makers needle two inches into my chest once when I was working at a show once, and I had to pull it out with a pair of pliers. I was by myself sitting there with this huge red blossom spreading across my white top and no way to even get to the ladies room. I never worked anywhere but home again. So be careful!
