Tuesday's Treasure with Melody

My treasure today is a little friend I have been going to share for ages. She sits atop my favourite coffee table books and looks after them for me. She is the sweetest little girl.
She is just known as "little bear" and she is made from mohair and is a wobbly head bear. Her collar is made from a piece of Vintage tatted lace. Little Bear is another one of my 'furry babies' created for me by my friend Ann and I love her. When lying down from ear to paw tip she is about 10 1/2 inches.
Look at that face. Handmade bears are my treasure today and thank you to one of my lovely followers Carin  who shared her birthday bears on her lovely blog and they just made me sigh with happiness.
Why not pop over to MELODY'S and see what treasure she has in store for us.
Today I have been bitten by the lazy bug big time and have curled up in my chair and finished reading my current Diana Gabaldon Book.
I thought only to read a little while I finished my morning coffee and ended up not moving until the last page. Plus there was a preview of her new book in the series due out next year...ooohhh! Can't wait!
I have done a little sewing though. I had to unpick some hexies  I was doing as I appliqued them on upside down....don't ya hate that! But all fixed now. This is one of those staring at and scratching the head type of projects. I think I am going to make one of those really long cushions for the couch....still thinking.
I also have made sure I did a few more stitches in my "Beyond the Garden Gate Blocks".
So apart from venturing out to a favourite coffee spot to meet a friend I haven't felt the urge to do much at all except go back to my chair and read a lovely quilting magazine I bought on my way home.
Lazy very Lazy!!!
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Blessings Michelle xx
