Just wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas.... or Happy Holidays!!    I finished the pj's and everything else. It's a good thing because the roads are getting icy and the salt truck has already done our circle!!  Guess I'll make some more cookies....

working while watching

The Bright Star online Bear Blitz show is running today and tomorrow....and I am supposed to keep an eye on  my web page for sales.  So I am ... and working on Christmas things for my grandchildren! Today I finished three sets of pj's plus bags ( after all one does need something to take one's pj's in to sleepovers!)
Sewing them was fun... trying out new trim stitches.  I have two more sets plus a nightgown to make.

Abby and her carrot candy canes is still looking for a new home. Yes, I said carrot candy canes.... Abby, like my granddaughter Lili, doesn't like anything mint !

Hunter the cat

I really had fun making this little anime style cat .... and he is already on his way to a new home in Texas!
This has been a fun season... I love making accessories for my bears and bear friends!   There's one more online show coming up this Sunday and Monday... the Bright Star Promotions  Bear Blitz .
I hope you'll take a look!  There is a great selection of bear artists and their bears if the preview page is anything to go by!!

After the show it will time to work on some family gifts. The grandchildren have asked for Christmas pj's. My daughter saw an idea she wants to try.... a Christmas Eve gift box. It will contain new Christmas pj's, some snacks, maybe a small gift.  All things to make the evening  good. She and her husband and the kids go out and  go and look at  Christmas lights. After that they watch a movie and will open the boxes. Sounds like a fun evening!!
They will all come to our house  for brunch and the family gift exchange....

Little Tommy...

Little Tommy is up on BearPile  ....his curly kid mohair is oh so soft !!  He is a handful... 7 inches tall.

Tommy is ready for today's weather. Earlier this morning we had our first dusting of snow and the temperature dropped ( or should I say plunged down down down) to a 5 with wind chill factor!!  I had an errand to run so I was doubly glad to be wearing my new fingerless gloves ... a fantastic purchase from Target $1.00 !!

My "page" for the online "Bear Blitz" show later this month is almost ready.  Quite a few bears are on it already . I still have to set up the PayPal buttons though.

Little Tommy is off to Texas where it is cold... but not as cold at Kansas City!
