A bear with a heart

Hi Blog chums , hope you are all well

As many of you know it was Mothers Day yesterday , so I thought I would just pop by and show you what I'd made for my lovely Mum.

I had a go at making air dry clay hearts which are really easy and fun to do , I gave them a coat of paint in her favourite colour , which is green and prettied them up for her. I made the letters out of some beaded trim I had and glued them on, threaded some ribbon through to hang them with and made a quick pole from a couple of odd door knobs and a piece of dowling covered in ribbon, a few little flowers and we were finished .

 And of course she had seen some of my bears recently , so I had to create one especially for her in a very funky green eyelash wool I found .

Happy makings

they just keep going

So little Edith went off to her new home , shortly followed by Rosalie and now Petal .

Just when I thought it was going to be fun ,fun fun off they go , so what was I to do , well there was only one thing for it ......... and that was to make a new friend to join me in the crafting room .

Out came the crochet hook and yarn and after a little while the daddy of all my teddies was created .

Say hello to Edgar all dressed up and ready to keep me company , complete with his pocket watch (made from an old necklace and a tiny frame bought from the local bead stall) just to let me know its time for tea , his deep velvety cravat (that was an old dress of mine) and a knitted waistcoat that I made up as I was going along,
Hope you like him 

Happy makings
