one "favorite" to go

I am up to 299 favorites on etsy.com !! I promised a giveaway when I hit 300... The giveaway is made and ready for me to post. I just need one more "favorite"!

the weather is hot so I've been sewing

What is there to do when the temperatures hit 111 degrees? Well... I've been sewing and reading. Bob and I lug shopping bags full of books home from the library and sit and read for hours at a time!
But I also sew.... hand sew little bears. This is Tommy and his friend Chaps. I found the basket and the (plain) puppy on the clearance aisle at Hobby Lobby. The puppy was too plain so he has been enhanced with coptic markers. You can find them both on BearPile
