I had a fabulous weekend spent with friends and antique shopping!!
Saturday Went shopping with a friend down on Whyte Ave...it's the local hip strip for a lack of a better term. Filled with shops and restaurants and neat things and people to see. The weather was fantastic not to hot just right for walking around. I managed to find some Chistmas goodies for Mom which I have stashed away. I also found some goodies for myself....well for bears!!! Surprised?????
Saturday night was spent with my honeybun!! Had a great dinner out with great food and awesome service. If you live in Edmonton you really must go to "Homefire Grill" They have great food, fantastic service!!! Plus the atmosphere in there is very warm and inviting!!
Which brings us to Monday..where instead of sewing, here I sit showing off my treasures!!!
I apologize for the not so great pics. The lighting wasn't that good and I am to lazy to bring out the lamps!!
So anyway here are a few pics
I'm not sure why I had to have this!! It just appealed to me!
This hat is going to get some pretty embellishments! It will look very sweet on a bear.
Also some nice trim for little dresses!
Mom actually found this sweet little silk pants and shirt outfit. I have plans for those pants already brewing in my mind!!! LOL
She doesn't have a name yet cause my Mom is not here and it is her job to name the newbies...LOL..
I am extremely happy how she turned out! I'm not sure if you can tell on the photos but I gave her eyelashes!!! I have been wanting to try that for awhile. I bought some probably a year ago...better late then never but she was was screaming to me that she wanted eyelashes!! And she was right!!!
So I will save her for my Teddy Bear Show and Sale that's in October. Actually most of the bears and critters I make now will go to the show.
I have already started my next bear or rather BUNNY!!! He's been sewn and I am stuffing away!!! I'm using a mohair called"mink" and it's gorgeous!!! Should turn out very nice!
Thought I'd take a break and share my new girlie giraffe with you!
I just wanted to say Thank You to the lovely lady who purchased a whack of my new minis! Her feedback was so wonderful and made me feel amazing. When trying out new things you are never sure if others will enjoy them as much as the creator...lol....so I was on pins and needles waiting to hear from her. Then she leaves me such great feedback that I know for sure to continue making my little wooden treasures!!!
Not sure if you read my blog but....
Feedback is so important. It lets sellers not only know that you received your item but that you love it and are happy. Plus it is a fantastic way for other buyers to get information.
