Pincushions and a Teddy Bear

Kevin's Teddy Bear
I recently mailed some handmade gifts to my dear friends Brian, Kevin and Debra (Brian's Mom).
These gifts were supposed to reach Indiana long before now, but considering that my efficiency levels are not what they once were...they arrived at their new home last week...finally.  It was a happy day when I mailed that box - the sense of accomplishment felt pretty good.

I'm not going to say much about them...they are sort of self explanatory.  They are hand embroidered and beaded, even the bear is hand stitched.  You know that is how I 'roll' as they say.  I did want to say that the Bear is for my friend, Kevin....yes, I always say he is a teddy bear, so he just had to have this little six inch tall character.  The "Back Home Again in Indiana" pincushion is for my friend, Brian.  We've talked.  He likes it.  (Oh, Thank Goodness!!)    The "Home is Where the Heart Is" pincushion is for Brian's Mom, Debra.  We've never met, but I'm thankful to have her son as a friend, so thought she deserved a pincushion of her own.  (Brian is an've seen his work on my blog you remember the memorial piece he made to honor the Old Navy Man?)

So, take a look at these.  I hope you enjoy them.  If you have any know you can comment or email, here they are:

Hope you enjoyed seeing them.
