Side By Each They Was


Business of bear making...
poked fingers...pondering personality
fur flying...scissors clipping...
pattern cutting...seam measuring...
 Practice, patience, reward...
Lovable...Laughable...Me...
Depending on where your are...good morning, good afternoon & good evening. Been a busy summer...lots of traveling, time spent with family, going to our cabin, bug swatting...lots of bug swatting...& rain...of biblical proportions...storm watches, twisters & tornadoes...holy humidity I want the sun to come out & stay out...want blue skies & butterflies...what the heck is happening to our weather. 
As you can see I have attempted to get back into my studio...the fur was flying for a few days while I created some bears from a couple of Vivianne Galli patterns. The odd Blue bear is my first try at using long mohair...was very challenging & I have to say I prefer creating critters with the shorter mohair...at least until I am more experienced. 
I will be making more mice, rabbits & critters as summer moves on...but again...at a slower summer pace as I just can`t be inside when its nice out...apartment living makes you appreciate those sunny days...gotta get out while the goings good!
Chow for now & have a sunshiny day!

Love the bears, I think you did a wonderful job with the mohair. They have the scrappy, worn look of a loved bear.

Susan, I love your little bears, what sweet faces!!!
I am trying hard to do more sewing and less blogging, it's hard though. I find myself torn between stopping and leaving comments and looking and reading......
I really enjoyed your last post of Drumheller, the old house..... it is so sad to see old farm houses.....
Hugs,
