The Brown Bear
Here is my progress on The Brown Bear. They are a little over half way done. They are sure cute, although I do find all the brown boring after awhile. I'm doing it for an Endangered Young'uns Quilt we are doing at CSFC. I've wanted to do these bears for awhile as they are so cute.
Anyone have plans for the 4th of July? I don't think we are doing anything. I just think I'll stitch. I love the 4th of July Holiday though. It's just something in it that I love. I really like the music and the festivals going on. Our city is having it's annual Summer Festival. I think this weekend will be the craft fair but not sure I will get down there.
The Food Pantry drive for June is over now and I am very happy with the results. Granted we didn't get as much as before but I didn't want to we did get a lot of money donated to the fund that we didn't get last time. Plus we really got a good variety of food. Later this week we are moving the Food Pantry out of the SS office to a room a little more out of the mainstream and doesn't get as much activity. Hopefully no food will "walk away."
I'm so bad. I keep finding more and more patterns I want to stitch up and it's hard to concentrate just on the bears but they need to be done by end of July so I'm sticking to these cute little guys. I do have my next 10 -12 projects lined up. How far in advance do you line up your pieces? Usually for me it's just 2 or 3 but because of babies, weddings etc., I know what my next 10 to 12 pieces. Although I may throw an odd one in here and there.
I got some pictures of Addison the other day. She's 8 weeks old now and is growing. You can tell she's really developing her personality right now. I can't wait to see her maybe sometime this summer maybe Aug.
Oh....Did you notice my Blog Roll is growing! I've added several new ones. One in particular, Paula has done some beautiful stitching. She just started her blog earlier this month and has several entries. Just click on Paula's name on my Blog Roll and you'll see her beautiful stitching.
Well, until next time Happy Stitching!
