At the end of the day . . .

Just the other day, I pulled out the calendar and counted how many sewing days I have left before the show. I counted exactly but that was the other day so now the total is less. I don’t know how much less because I can’t remember which day I was looking at the calendar.

I have earnestly tried to make the best use of my time. I know you might find that hard to believe what with the weather, the Farmer’s Market, and not reading. Really, I have been practically glued to my desk – sewing, sewing, sewing.

For some, I suppose it could drive a person a little nutty – or crazy – or batty but that’s a normal state for me so nothing new there.

At the end of the day, how does one entertain oneself when the dark and the quiet have descended upon the house and even the dog is sound asleep? I picked up my camera, fiddled with a couple of settings and took this photo of my desk. Kinda colorful in a weird kind of way, you must admit.


If you had asked me before I began this journey what kind of tools you would need to make a teddy bear, I don’t think I would have said a socket driver, pliers, a metal file, and about a gazillion pairs of scissors.

I best be goin’ now. When things start to look a little surreal, it’s time to go to bed. Otherwise, I won’t be able to tell my dreams from reality and that really would be kind of bizarre.


  1. Gosh, you work way too hard! Ha ha, although it is only six months till you know what, I know I shouldn't be thinking of that but you know someone has too!!!! I am laughing at your previous know a bear maker by the way she makes everything talk!!!!! You crack me up, I have a habit of kissing my dolls and bears when I am dusting and my husband shakes his head when I talk to bears if I see them at a show.....and my tool list sounds like yours too.....
    Maybe it's a sickness and we need help!!!
    I do wish you all the best for the upcoming show, your work is so beautiful and I love your bears, I know everyone does!!!!

  2. I just read this in fast motion. That's how it reads to me. Take a breath. Relax. You can only do what you can do. Go have an ice cream or chocolate or whatever your fancy is.

  3. Hee hee, definitely time for bed for you!

  4. Tienes que relajarte, seguro que todo ira bien.
    Has conseguido hacerme reir con tus peripecias, eres genial!!!
