This past month has been filled with all things spring. I have planted my gardens...such as they are when you live in a condo. I have a rock garden below my deck and a small garden in the front...everything else is in pots. The squirrel is busy trying to dig up one of my containers on the rail of the deck...every morning! Dirt everywhere...cheeky little thing! And when he is finished doing that he swings over to a branch in the tree and eats birdseed. I have two feeders...one is new and not accessible to the squirrel, so he gets into the other one. I had to get a new feeder, because I had deer coming up and banging the old feeder to get the seed out. Didn't think they would do that...but I saw it happen before my sleepy eyes at 3:00am one morning. I could hear things banging away...and thought it was the wind. Silly me!
I am finally going to do the last bit of embroidery and sewing up the border on my wall quilt this week. And I have decided to finish a project I haven't done for 6 or so years. I usually don't let things go for so long...but I guess I got busy and put it away.
Barb Irwin was a wonderful bear maker years ago...she lives in British Columbia, but doesn't make bears anymore. I took a class she presented here in Calgary about 6 years ago only because she wasn't putting the pattern out right away and I loved the bear. And so it is time to sew up this wonderful panda.
It is a bigger bear than I usually do...but I love it.
