I have also just discovered that March 20th has been declared 'the International Day of Happiness'. A great idea, a day to show some kindness, hug a special friend and above all be happy!
Still busy stitching, two almost complete and one to go for the next batch of orders. Lots of new ideas swirling around in my head, must be the sunshine but a good incentive to get all the orders complete and then have some fun experimenting and perhaps get back to the knitted dress.
A bear picture to share, this is Bonnie one of my handful of bears now on E-bay. When looking through all the fabrics I found a small piece of most unusual rosewood coloured vintage rayon, just enough for one little bear. She is wearing a pretty cotton floral print dress and is trimmed with flowers, ribbon and beads and holding a cream flower trimmed handbag.
I will share some of my new bears once they are all complete. The theme is 'teddy bear's picnic' so lots of pretty embroidered dresses sounds like a good idea.
And finally a most apt description of March spring weather, very well said Mr Dickens....
It was one of those March days when the sun shines hot and the wind blows cold: when it is summer in the light, and winter in the shade. ~Charles Dickens, from Great Expectations
