As you can see, Sew Bear and I finally got to do a little smocking last night. I don't believe I have introduced Sew Bear on my blog. She is my Vermont Teddy Bear that my sweet husband gave me as a wedding gift. We also went to Vermont Teddy Bear Company on our honeymoon. Sew Bear is wearing a cute little jumper, has a tape measure for a headband, and carries around a tomato pincushion. Kurt gave her to me so she could keep me company while I sew.
Last night, Hannah and Jonathan were at band, and Kurt took Timothy on a walk to the playground which gave me uninterrupted time to smock. I finished almost an entire row! This is going to be a smocked Christmas ball for the Martha Pullen Fan Club annual ornament exchange. I am getting a head start on my ornaments this year. In fact, I am thinking of making these for my family as well as Christmas gifts. That being said, I needed to get started soon, so now was the perfect time.
