finished it.

So here is the little needle punch project i was working on . a couple years ago I made 11 of these little bags one for each month.. with the exception of may. just never got around to doing that one ! anyways, each little bag was made to represent a month and then I made a little bear to go with each bag. I've been saying for a couple years that I wanted to make the may bag.. and finally I got a round to it this week! the picture above is a front view, this one below is the back side. Also each little bag had charms to represent the month also.


Here is the bag with the bear in it. he needs to lose that hat. but I dont feel like redoing it tonight. maybe sometime during the week, it will only take 5 minutes to fix it up or make a new one, but not tonight!

The bear didnt turn out as cute as I would have liked him too. I may still need to tweak and play with him a bit. If you want to see the rest of these bears in the bags.. go here.. http://www.flickr.com/photos/vneroni/ I took their pictures and posted them on flickr, but dont really feel like uploading them all over to blogger tonight.
Today Jennifer and I went to a doll show in the city. I got this sweet sweet tiny little german baby! isnt he adorable? I love tiny dolls! I almost bought a couple more nancy anns, but I ended up buying doll clothes and the cutest little baby shoes and these old nesting blocks.. I just thought they were so cute!
See the tiny little purple crocheted top and the tiny little red dress? this lady crochets those itsy bitsy things! And she can still see! I make tiny things, but my eyes are horrible. I dont know how anyone can crochet so little! Anyways, those two pieces are for violet and my 8 inch mary englebriet doll! And they look so cute on them! The other dresses are for other dolls I have and also one special one for another sock monkey I'm going to make!


Then there were these sweet old nesting blocks. god only knows why I had to have them. but they were cheap enough and oh so cute.

Now.. I'm hungry! Jen and I went to lunch at red robin and I ate a HUGE burger and fries and then of course didnt want any dinner.. So Tony ate left overs and I think now it might be time for some POPCORN!! I really like eating popcorn for dinner! And it wouldnt be so bad for me, if I didnt use half a stick of butter on it.

OK girls.. I have to do some blog hopping.. I signed up for a couple swaps and need to check to see when I need to be mailing things out! Have a great night!

and... happy mothers day!

Hop over and see what confections I put together.

I hope your steak (last nights dinner) was delish, ours were like shoe leather...which was surprising, cause one they were prime rib and two we'd just purchased the steaks from Trader Joes. I seasoned them well and grilled them to a medium perfection...to no avail!

I wanted to share a couple videos with you before I post them.

there are several funny ones to enjoy! I think you need to be a cat owner to appreciate these antics.
Sweet wishes,
Sara

You needed those blocks to sit your babies and bears on. I'm sure you'll make a pretty little vignette with the blocks.

Happy Mother's Day!

I know how tiny those are because I spot some of the charms! I just posted a few photos of them. I haven't mailed mine out yet. i'm off to Texas and had TONS of sewing to do before I left. I'll get them in the mail as soon as I get back!

Hi, I linked here from I-can't-remember-where! Enjoyed looking at your flickr site. I make (made) mini bears, dabble in punch needle, would like to do some needle felting, and have two boy kitties too. Needless to say, I found your flickr albums inspirational :)
