Teddy Bear - Work In Progress...... slowly....

Well I seem to have been blanket stitching for days and this is all I have at the moment to show for it! But at least this one is finished, well sort of!

This is how it looks after I have finished the machine stitching. I now have to thread the top thread underneath, knot it and cut it, can't have any stray threads as being a pale yellow they will show up. Have learnt that through experience! Then I have to hand sew an odd single blanket stitch here and there so it looks all even. And then hand stitch the bears face and then I am finished!

The other 11 blocks are in various stages. I have done all the paws and face, just working my way through the clothes now.

I must admit I am finding it hard to find time to get to sew at the moment. Work has been a bit full on this week, 25 hours which doesn't sound like much, but thats a chunk of my Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday gone. Still, its making me appreciate my time at home with the girls and my machine much more.
