This year has started out busy. I did manage to take a few days away from the hares & bears between Christmas and New Year. However, time was spent shopping and picking up last minute items. New Year's Day was spent visiting Grandma and family. Then this week we drove in on Grandma's birthday to get her license renewed for another year. She is 95 and still drives!
I have been trying to develop new designs for 2010. This is my 20th year of making hares & bears. Does that even seem possible? It was just yesterday that I learned to use the sewing machine. Time does fly. I remember some of the early shows that I attended. In my mind, they were a flurry of activity. Mohair being flung overhead, as people dashed to artists' tables to see new creations. I remember spending time at the bottom of the mohair pile searching for the right fabric and finding several pieces for others. I was just 13 at the time. How things have changed amazes me.
Best wishes for a Joyful and Blessed New Year.
