impromptu bear

Up early in the studio, I had every intention of working on work stuff, but then this little guy happened.

He’s all of 5″ and admittedly a bit fiddly, but thanks to pink plaid scrap and a little extra effort, he stitched up sweetly.

I ❤ his busy body! My fabric stash is mostly calico and large print florals, so options were limitlessly limited ..kinda wishing there was a rogue swatch of mohair cloth tucked up on the shelf, it would be heirloom gorgeous, but SO gross to cut & sew! ..thinking future bears of wool felt & pale velvet 💕

.. ok little bear, let’s get back to it ..


a little bit of may crochet đź’•

A little bit of travel crochet in my favorite bag with my favorite yarn. Somehow I wonked up my foot on our annual Boston adventure ..blurg :/ But now that we’re home I’m basically living the old lady life in compression stockings & icepacks, 100% lazing on the couch 100% of the time trying to heal ..being all sorts of immobile, somewhat cranky and so very crafty đź’•

A little bit of sink crochet, finishing up some overdue wips in the brand new sink Jason & I installed and made work! ..and unbelievably yes, water actually comes out of everywhere it’s supposed to and not to toot our own horn, but it effectively drains as well! ..though true to form for these non-DIYers it was a comical absurdity of swears & errors đź’•

A little bit of baby crochet babies, but shop samples and sweet as can be 💕

A little bit of granny crochet the potamus way, one of the very first softies I ever made and still an all time favorite 💕 

You know you were gone too long when crabby kiki does a faceplant in your lap just because she missed you that much 💕
