As Promised

It has been very rainy around these parts lately. Perfect weather for ducks and getting some sewing done. I've worked on a few things since my last post.

I made myself a nice big pincushion. The one I had wasn't quite fat enough and the pins were poking through the bottom. I went through my scraps and put it together in a log cabin-ish way.

Speaking of pincushions...Nana Bear snapped a photo of the pincushions I made her so I could share them with everyone. She's already got them all filled with pins and sewing goodies.

I also made a few Black Apple Dolls. One is for Big Sister Bear and the other is going to be a gift. I just love these dolls, they are so cute and easy to make. I plan to make many more for Christmas presents since they're the perfect companion for any sweet little girl.

I also have a late Sunday Stash post because the order didn't come until yesterday. I got a few half yards of Hope Valley in Fiesta and New Day. I also got a half yard of some adorable Kokka train fabric, Full Moon Dot in red and Meadow Dot in citrus. I ordered them from Thistle Hill Fabrics on etsy.

We also had two momentous occasions here in the Bear Den last night. Little Sister Bear started taking the spoon and feeding herself and Big Sister Bear sat in the booster seat and ate at the table!

Finally, Lucy & Norman are having an awesome giveaway for their blog-aversary here, check it out!

Whew! That was a long one, hope you enjoyed it!

Such sweet faces on those little girls -- both the sewn ones and the *real* ones!
