special order

BEARLY time to do a post or anything else for that matter! I've been hustling my butt off..

beary busily playing santa bear paws...

trying to get all these little bruins done
in time for people to have them for Christmas!

These sweet bears are for my friend LINDA on flickr, who lost her daughter to an illness 10 years ago. the RememBears are made of her daughters favorite t-shirt and I think they turned out really cute.
Linda will love them, I hope.

I have 7 more bears to go to complete the last order.. then I have two bears to make for my mother out of my grammies kilt and a bear to make for my MIL out of stuff of her husbands.. and then one for my daughters boyfriend out of his mothers belongings.

Ive completed and mailed all my swaps!! but I still have to make something for my three best friends and have quite a bit of shopping left to do.. my friends may end up with stuff I didnt make for them this year and I dont think my christmas cards are going to get done...
Once again I ask.... FAIRY GOD MOTHER where are you?????
but I'm happy none the less... because.. I have a sweet little baby grandson! and a house full of thd cutest kittens!
I will catch up with you all one day soon!!
I'm so glad you keep coming back here.. dont ever stop.. because then what would be the fun in blogging?!
hugs for the day!

These are wonderful, Viv! Such a great idea to make them out of clothing of a loved one--I love this!

What a wonderfully busy time for you, and how nice of you to be so busy making these for others...

Hope it's a beautiful day for you, my friend!

I'm glad you took time to post about these bears. Such a lovely idea to make them from beloved bits of clothing.
It looks like you'll be sewing right up until the last minute. I've done that before. With me this year, it's the cooking, wrapping and mailing that's coming down to the wire. I'm pretty sure my Christmas cards aren't going out this year. Time to prioratize.
Enjoy your Christmas fun!

Oh, my gosh, how can you do all that and work too? I'm so embarrassed to admit that I just mailed my "cup" swap yesterday, but I did take photos to send you.

Those bears are just too cute and such a wonderful idea!

After reading your post, my "to do" list seems shorter :)

I don't know how you do all that you do! I need some of your energy. We just found out we are expecting our first grandchild. We are so excited!

I didn't realize your bears were memory bears, Viv. What a wonderful idea! I know they will be treasured!
