Faith finds new wings

Faith went digging in the sweater box, and found a sweater that has wings.  She thought that was pretty nifty, since she packed up her wings with the rest of the Christmas decorations.  She's such an angelic little bear!

Sweater Time!

Faith came to me as a little angel.

But even little angels get cold.

 Since the wind chill is making it feel like 7 degrees outside, we decided to exchange her wings for a sweater. Since there are still a few days of Christmas left, we thought this sweater could still be deemed appropriate.

Faith is now nice and warm in her snuggly sweater! She wants to let everyone know that removing her wings was not painful and she still feels quite angelic.

Begun in 2009, To be completed in 2010

I've begun work on my next new bear. I'd planned to sew this one with my sewing machine, since he'll be much larger than my last bear. Unfortunately, my sewing corner is in my eat-in kitchen, which is being repainted and crown molding installed. It could be weeks before I can resume this project unless I break down and decide to do it all by hand - I'm not sure my hands are up for that! In the meantime, I can dream about what a wonderful teddy this will be!
