More Teddy Stitching

What is it about a blue sky and light breeze that lifts your spirits? After the miserable skies we have had lately I am delighted to see such a pretty day.
I have been very diligent in my bear sewing. First the finished applique block...
I then put a simple quilt top together but I think it looks rather sweet.
She also has a garland of red guipure lace daisies and I think perhaps a lady beetle on her foot in the works. I am going to bind it in the red check. No borders. I like that look.
I also began "pink" Faerie Bear...poor thing has no face yet.
My little stitchery bears have not been neglected either and I managed to finish block 3 and start block 4.
They are such fun to dress in threads and stitch. I am loving it.
Lastly my "Tea & Roses" table runner is a new project in the latest Country Threads Magazine.
I used some of my dwindling stash of favourite Robyn Pandolph fabric for it. Does anyone else stroke their favourite fabrics and sigh or is it just me.
Enjoy your weekend all.
Blessings Michelle x

  23. Lovely work as always Michelle. Sure wish that magazine was around here , looks like a lovely project . Yes I do have fabrics that I just have the hardest time to cut into but I love to look at and just feel their softness . Hugs

  24. You picked the perfect fabrics to showcase your bear. I LOVE it. No 2 is going to be just as sweet. You did an awesome job.

    I have a pile of Meadowsweet fabric I’ve been hoarding for well over three years , too afraid to cut into it . Occasionally I take it out and think of all the beautiful things I could make with it. I’ve finally decided on a quilt but do you reckon I’ve cut it yet ?
