…Joining Ginny’s YarnAlong, sharing what I’m knitting
I finished the knitted bear just in time for my mom’s birthday. Jeff made the buttons specially for this project. The heart was made in reclaimed western red cedar and the wee button eyes were made in reclaimed ebony wood. I create the nose with light pink embroidery floss (I always have a hard time with that part) and made her a little flower headband in wool felt. I wanted to make her girly, and the headband was the perfect touch.
These pictures were taken in a grocery store parking lot. Some pictures were taken in the car, some in a tree, and some in a bush. We were on our way to Saturday Market, but I had finished the bear late Friday night and hadn’t had a chance to photograph her yet. I wanted to get some pictures of her before I taped the box up. Jeff parked the car to run into the grocery store and grab something quickly, then we were going to be dropping the package off at the post office, and heading to market. So, my chance to take pictures was a few moments in the grocery store parking lot. I searched for the only greenery I could find in the bare surroundings and I made some people drive really slow past me as they wondered what in the world I was doing. (Don’t people photograph little bears in trees all the time?) These pictures really don’t do her justice (I’d like to take more next time I’m with my mom), she turned out adorable. My mom is in love with her bear and named her Daisy.
How about you? Knitting? Reading? Taking random pictures in parking lots?
