How Goes the Work ??

Progress Report :

Well , it is a bit slow with my Hugglets bears .... but at least I've got most of their little faces on , so that their bodies are not too far behind , having already been stuffed . I have got a lot more to do on the hamsters , and I may have to cross my fingers that I get them finished at all ! Pesky little rodents ...

Of course , not having a holiday would've helped (sewing-wise at least) but then I wouldn't have had the pleasure of criss-crossing the country - Peak District to Somerset - taking in such delights as Chatsworth House , Clifton Suspension Bridge , the S.S.Great Britain , Roman Baths (again this year - whoopee !) on our tour of Bath , with ultra-civilised lunch at The Pump Room , and Longleat safari park and house .... not to mention the fantabulous production of Gilbert and Sullivan's "Iolanthe" which the 3 of us so enjoyed at Buxton Opera House ...... pheeeewwwww !!! There's a lot to be said for compressing summer in to a week - and quite a bit more on the subject of all those hotel breakfasts ;when inclusive stuff yourself like you habitually eat that much in the mornings ! Hmmmm , about half a stone more to be said probably - LOL !

Anyway , time is flying on and after so much gadding about I must get back to my needles .
Just time to say a big , heartfelt "Thank you" to Elanor over at Shantock Bears for passing me the Uber Amazing Blog Award - I am so delighted to receive this from such a lovely lady and her beautiful bears and friends :0)

My God Ruth! You're bearing looks so organised and neat...nothing like the mess I get into! :)
I'm looking forward to seeing your finished wee bears with all their trimmings.

Ruth you inspire me to go get organised now in my absolute chaotic work area. The little bears look so cute!


Ruth said...

Hiya !
Can't wait to see you again Tina :0)

Sandi - the pic doesn't show any "overflow" boxes !!

Pauline - you're so sweet :0) I have loads of little tray/boxes , and I (try)to keep all the right bits with each bear ... although I do still lose the odd ear LOL ! It's the most annoying thing isn't it when you have to get the material out just to cut one more ear again ! :0)
Huggies ladies xx

oh, how cute they all look in their little compartments.... a perfect way to keep all the bits together for sure.... I should invest in a few trays...baggies are okay...but....nyehhh they don't look nearly as professional.
