Bears Almost There

The last pair of Bears are Bearyl and Nutmeg.....
Bearyl looks a bit travel weary lol!
I have another little piece to stitch before I put it together.
I drew this postcard before I ever thought of doing the "other " Postcards! I think eventually I shall be postcards out!
The fabric I bought is quite busy but I loved it, which surprised me as I am definitely NOT a novelty fabric kind of girl! I am hoping to bring it altogether with a pretty cinnamon spot.
It just seemed to fit the travelling bears.....and was a little bit vintage looking.
I feel satisfied that progress is being made to get it crossed off the UFO CHALLENGE list.
I have a birthday coming up next month and will be away when it happens. My very nice hubby surprised me with an early birthday gift (he didn't expect to arrive this early lol!)
The gift.....a subscription to Australian Geographic a magazine that I love and 2 coffee mugs featuring the gorgeous artwork by Nathan FERLAZZO also an artist I really admire.....
Sooo  talented!
We are still damp and drizzly here today so I feel a cuppa and some quiet stitching is the order of the day. Perhaps some Clamshells stitching as I am a little "beared" out!
Namaste and Blessings Michelle xxx
