Sad to see this little guy go…

…he was truly one of my favorites – so much attitude! –He’s off to Anita in Kelowna, BC 🙂

I haven’t had much time to make new bears in the past four months, but as the season winds down, I’m adding new bears 🙂 Mika and Oogie are new, and I have a black mink, light palomino mink, big blue fox and a big shark grey Mongolian Lamb bear in my mind to make, in the coming weeks!

Irma and pillows

–That’s what occupied my time and my heart this weekend.

As I worked, CNN was queued on the TV — “drowned out” a bit by the rat-a-tat-tat of my sewing machine. I marathon-ed 7 gorgeous pillow covers since Friday and all the while, my thoughts and best wishes were with everyone affected by the storm. I am pretty amazed at how cool the people of the state of Florida are (and Texas too, for that matter); their composure, organization, grace and resilience. I have no doubt that they will be back on their feet in record time.

I hope that you will all be home-sweet-home and settled in again soon.

These hues add a striking touch when paired with the classic autumnal shades of Navy Peony, Neutral Gray, Butterrum and Tawny Port.” …more
