I cannot show the bears that are being prepared for the Christmas Treasures Show next month, ...but I can show you other projects I have on the go!
Anyone who knows me, knows how much I love flowers and the garden. A few weeks ago, I became intrigued by silk ribbonwork and made a few pansies from a kit. I wanted more, so signed up for a three week online Joggles course called Scrumptious Hearts with Christen Brown. The course covered how to dye silk ribbon and lace and how to make a few different flowers, finishing with using them to embellish little hearts. I thoroughly recommend the course. I loved it. I didn't follow the instructions entirely, but I have always marched to my own drum. My hearts have ended up as pincushions, as I added 4 layers of batting to make them thick enough. (Not much room left for pins, though!)
I feel that I am just at the start of this journey, and look forward to more of this work, when bear making, housework and gardening commitments allow!
