I got the 2nd Teddy Bear finished in time for them to be overnight shipped to Ohio for our 2 granddaughters for Valentines Day tomorrow. We included 2 Valentine cards, some fun stickers and 2 little heart shaped boxes of chocolates for the girls. I hope they enjoy them. Hubby said it cost an arm and a leg to send them overnight. :-)
It was hard to get the true color of the bears - the yellow is richer yellow and the purple is Magenta/Fuchsia colored.
This is Paige's bear.
I thought I'd show you a planter pot that I made years ago - I just came across it in the basement a few days ago. I made lots of pottery while taking classes at Mt. Hood Community College. These are my Sumi ink goldfish and jellyfish. I am going to plant something neat in this.I also wanted to show you the white wool I spun after I plied it, washed it and then it dried and I wound it up. I'm not sure what I'll do with this yet.
Our Snowdrops are in bloom! I'm so happy to see flowers blooming in our yard. Spring is coming! Although.. the weather man on tv is just telling us Winter 2.0 is coming. No!
I attended the Portland Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution meeting today and the speaker was very interesting. Her name is Rose High Bear and is an Alaskan Athabascan Indian and she's the Executive Director of "Wisdom of the Elders". Their mission is to record and share the rapidly vanishing and irreplaceable stories from the keepers of oral history. The values the elders extol represent an ancient legacy of knowledge which is becoming as endangered as disappearing species in today's fragile ecosystem.
SO... are you ready for Valentines Day? I am! Hubby and I bought each other cards when we were shopping for the grandkids cards and we got each other a bit of chocolate. Now I'm trying to convince him to take me out for dinner at a extra special place, although he's trying to convince me that we should go to Tad's which is only down the road. I love Tad's but we'll see... :-)
((hugs)), Teresa :-)
