Sneek Peek

So this is what has been taking up all of my time for the past few days. I am making two of these table runners, one for my mom and the other for my sister for Christmas. I'm almost done now I just need to sew on the binding and stitch it down. I'll take a better picture when I'm all done.


Christmas Lights!!!

I thought I would go outside and brave the cold to share some pictures of our Christmas decorations. The middle picture are Santas that my fatherinlaw has carved. We have gotten a Santa every year for Christmas for the past 11 years. He told us however that this is the last year he is going to carve them, so I will make sure I share a picture when we get it. Doesn't he do a beautiful job! The Santa on my front door is a quilt that my mother made and I must say I think this is one of my favorite Christmas decorations. As for me I'm still sewing on Christmas presents and with any luck I will get pictures taken soon, or I am going to be in alot of trouble.
Enjoy your weekend!!

I completed this little guy several weeks ago, but due to some computer problems I am just getting around to sharing him. He is 14 inches tall and is filled with excelsior and steel shot and has a very vintage bear look. This was my first time stuffing with excelsior and I must say I really like how he turned out.

Hibiscus Are Blooming

The hibiscus are blooming in our yard and I had to share some pictures with you. Aren't they gorgeous!!! It seems like summer has gone by so fast, the kids start school this week, how is that possible? I am looking forward to getting into my sewing room more though, maybe that little bear that has been sitting there half stuffed will finally get completed. Have a great week!!!
Until Next Time

Dyed Mohair

Yesterday I dyed a couple pieces of mohair the most beautiful color of pink. The two pieces turned out so different, but I love them both. I planned on cutting out a bear today, but it just didn't work out like I planned. We have a busy week ahead so I will see if I can squeeze it in. Have a great evening!!!

New Bear

I have to say that I have never shared the bears that I have created online. I guess I have always felt very self conscious when it comes to sharing my work, but here starts a new beginning for me and my bears. So, please meet "Believe". He will be staying with me and joining my collection of bears. Thanks for taking a peek.

Flea Market

I promised pictures of the flea market and here I am two weeks later finally getting them organized. On flea market days we are up at 6 am, hop in the car for a short 30 min drive and we hit the fair grounds ready to shop. It takes us about 5 hours to make it around to all of the vendors and we are totally exhausted by the time we leave. A grilled pork sandwich and a yummy homemade cream puff are in order for the ride home. Now what more could one ask for on a sunny summer day!! This weekend we are at a baseball tournament that my youngest son is playing in. Have a great evening!!!

New Name

Yup, that's right. I never really liked the name "Twisted Twig Studios" so I decided to make a change. "The Vintage Bear" suits me much better.

Pictures tomorrow of the flea market we went to last Sunday. Have a great evening!!!
