It was just one week ago when I started my Plush You 2008 project although it definitely started in my mind the moment I found out that I was accepted. I worked at my real job every day this week but in my free time here is what happened. I started with an inspiration board .
Then a very busy work table .
The finishing touch was to make some fabric sacs with my " trade mark" , resurrection fern name attached and a short explanation printed on 100% recycled paper to insert in each sac. I said goodbye to each little bear and packed then up for their journey. You won't believe how hard it was to hand the parcel over to the postman. I have decided that when I get the chance I will make some for myself, especially the last little green bear with the tear on his cheek. He is deeply imprinted in my heart and soul.
If you would like to purchase any or all of these bears ( I have dream that they might actually stay together forever) I believe they will be for sale after the opening on October 10th. I decided to price them all the same even though the mother bear and child took more time to design and make. They will be affordable to anyone who wants to give them a good home and remember my portion of the sale will go to my favorite environmental group. That reminds me wasn't Obama's speech filled with hope for my american friends and really the world. He would definitely get my vote !!!
Thanks for all the amazing comments this week and I will leave the comments open until Monday, at which time I will combine them all and draw a name for special present. Without you my inspiration would starve. Thanks so much. I have decided since september is traditionally back to school month I am planning loads of tutorials for the month including, crochet button mushrooms, the lazy girl ( or boy)'s method to felt rocks, crochet soft trees, knitted trees to name a few. I also have a new guess the nature inspiration post planned. All this intermingled with photographs of the changing season, it's happening so early and fast this year. Fall is traditionally one of my favorite times of year and I plan to celebrate its breathtaking beauty.
