The prize is a Canon Rebel XS. This post is my entry into the contest. If you don't have an Artfire shop ...check it out.

Getting serious....

Bill and I decided after our anniversary this weekend that we have to cut way down on the sweets. I managed to do 20 minutes on the treadmill this morning. Ten pounds need to come off before it gets cool enough here to wear long jeans...otherwise I don't think they will fit. Sweets are my downfall but I know they need to go.
Speaking of sweets, I am really excited about the current series of bears I am working on. They are 5 - 6 inches and "sweet" themed. Daphne of Backroads Events is hosting and online holiday show in late November. I'm really excited about the show and plan to debut the "sweeties" then. I will post more details about the show as they become available.
We are still in limbo with our house. The banks are moving slowly. So I have had more time to sew and come up with new ideas. This piece of mohair has been in my closet for a couple of years. I really love the buttery color but it really didn't suit the smaller bears I have been making. Since Rosalie turned out so well I have decided to make a couple of bigger bears. Bigger, for me, is around 14 inches.

Last week I went to fabric store to get some Christmas fabric for a swap critter and saw this beautiful purple fabric on sale for 50% off. At the time, I had no idea what I was going to make BUT I do now. Stay tuned! Oh, the buttons were on sale too!
