My little girl bears wearing dresses trimmed with vintage lace and hand embroidery are very popular with collectors. These little items of clothing take many hours of careful stitching and my work table looks somewhat like a mini dressmaker's studio. Just need a couple of tiny dress forms to display all the clothing.
Some pictures to share of work in progress, a selection of bears in various stages of completion.....
I love books and possibly spend too much of my precious creative time reading. Having read all three of my birthday present books and now waiting for books to arrive at the library, I have started taking crochet hook and thread to bed. Knitting and embroidery just do not work sitting up in bed, I drop stitches or loose needles so crochet is ideal. I have made a collection of pink flowers, still a few more to do then I can make them into something special.
That is about all my creative news for the present, back to stitching so that I can take a day off next week!
Far away there in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead ~ Louisa May Alcott
