This week has felt seriously unproductive, and yet I travelled 600 miles for a bear fair last weekend, so I guess I wasn’t sitting around twiddling my thumbs!
Anywho, here’s my finish for last week:
Jimney Thistle was in the raffle at The Great Yorkshire Teddy Bear Event on Sunday, and all the bears together raised about £500. I went with the bells for his front because although I’d have loved to do yo-yos, my stash just wasn’t yielding matching purples :o( I have enough of this fur to make one more bear, although the next wee guy will have a purple head with orange ears.
Although Hoagy wasn’t finished last week, he was handed over to his new owner, so now I can show you his whole picture:
He has a double jointed neck for extra inquisitiveness.
Here’s my immediate WIP, can you guess what I’m making? ;o)
This is my Piece Bee With you block for November. I also have a siggy block to put together, which I suspect will be an improv effort!
I also managed to get the first of granny’s birds sewn together whilst relaxing(?!) after the fair on Sunday night, one down, five to go.
Coming up this weekend I have the first wholly and entirely free weekend (well, after a leaving do for a colleague on Friday night). I’m currently tossing up starting the super secret project, or putting together a dress for the office Christmas party. I originally had a rather grand plan for this dress, but then we were told that the party would be in Manchester this year, so that caused a bit of a rethink. I’m now thinking I might reuse the pattern for one of the dresses I made over the summer, the halter neck one. I’ve also been weighing up whether to use the original fabric I bought (some fabulous dupion silk that was a bargain price) or to get something else and save it… Decisions, decisions!
Now just so that I can enable you all in creating your own things, pop on over to Pings and Needles to check out their Go Baby giveaway.
I’m linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday.
