forgotten fur







I have found that procrastination and my "swiss cheese" memory gets me in more trouble...last year I got a lovely old mink stole from a friend to cut up and make into teddy bears. I put it off for a while-hung it in the back of my closet and proceeded to forget all about it. Last week my friend e-mailed me to say she'll be in town (she's from North Carolina, I'm near Milwaukee, WI) in October. She wanted to know if she could pick up the bears then. HA! HA!!!--I had to fess up to her about my "sometimer's" disorder and needed to know how many bears to make. I've got 4 to do and PROMISED to have them done by October. So now, all other projects are on hold til the fur stops flying. It wouldn't be so bad if I sewed them on a machine-but these delicate little beauties have to be totally sewn by hand, and turned and stuffed very carefully. I am looking forward to seeing how well I can live up to my promise-and just how these little guys will look. I'll keep you posted. And really, I think I might get a little spinning done in between....we'll see!!!!
