I have been working on "Dear Heart" off and on this week. I still am having serious problems with my sinus infection and it effects my eyes. This is not what you want when you love to stitch.
I have named her "Sharon". I was adopted and my parents changed my name to Donna Jean. I was almost grown when I saw my birth certificate and saw I was named "Sharon" at birth. As crazy as it sounds I often have to think am I a Sharon Ann or a Donna Jean...John thinks I am a bit of both. I have met some of my birth family and still am in contact with my brother.....Growing up I always wanted a big brother but was for most part an only child.
Back to the Bear.....It was fun to do the embroidery and than put her together. It is great to have the little pockets on her dress both front and back. I know I will use them. I seldom make myself anything and this is one I will keep. I am now working on her hand bag and hat box and the heart that she stays in when I am not using her.
I will be making another bear but not for sewing.....for Zoe my almost 3 year old granddaughter.
She fell in love with it. I will make her some clothes she can put on and take off. I am almost allergic to my sewing machine but do love making projects like these.
So what do you all think? Leave me a comment. If you do I will add have John pick the number to win my Amish Chatelaine. You can see it on a previous entry. We will do this next Sunday so make sure you add a email address so I can reach you.
