Home Is The Sailor Home From Sea!


You know how I've been teasing you by telling you about SOOOOOOOOO many finishes coming out of my sewing room, but not SHOWING you cos they're Secret Squirrel projects? Well, I can now show you one of them, cos it arrived where it was travelling off to.

Now, it was the lovely Kerryanne's birthday last month, but since I was so snowed under at the time, I sent her a cute card and an IOU for her giftie ... which I finished last week and was so excited that I just wanted to borrow Dr Who's Tardis to deliver it STRAIGHT AWAY!!! Are you like that?? Whenever I make/buy a giftie for someone I want to give it to them RIGHT NOW so they can start enjoying it! Well after a quick (remarkably so!!) trip via Australia Post this is what arrived at Kerryanne's door this week ...


AAAAAAAAARRRRRRRHHHHHH! Me Hearties! Yo, Ho! Yo, Ho! A Pirate's Life For Me!! (Pirates have 'colourful language, right?! Tee! Hee! Hee!) Hmmm ... it seems he was getting into the swing of his piratey character here - a treasure chest, a ship, a pretty mermaid and a bottle of rum ... what more could a buccaneer bear ask for! :0)

Since Kerryanne and her family have recently undertaken a 'sea change' I thought a salty sea-dog ... er ... sea-BEAR ... might be just the ticket for her birthday! He's yet to be named, but Kerryanne tells me he's already being accepted as part of their family and he fits right on in with her sea-side themed decorating. I did warn Kerryanne that bears can be just a WEEEEEEEE bit mischievous and I'm sure he will lead her into many new piratey adventures! Hmmmm ... or will that be KERRYANNE leading the BUCCANEER BEAR on adventures! Tee! Hee! Hee! Can't wait to see the photos ... especially now that Kerryanne's camera is back from it's check-up! (Snicker!!!) So I wish my little beary friend and my bloggy buddy fair winds and following tides. "Drink Up Me Hearties - Yo Ho!"

In other sewing news ... I have been busy in the sewing room, but once again, I can't show you. Not because I was working on surprises this time ... I just forgot to take a photo before I delivered things! Oops! My friend Lynda ended up 'volunteering' to co-ordinate the craft stall for the annual fete at her kids' school, but very little assistance was forthcoming from other parents, so I whipped up a few sets of coasters, made a small herd of clothes peg reindeer and helped add some simple applique to some bag-bags. (No, I'm not stuttering - they're the bags you store your plastic shopping bags in, although I've noticed a decline in our stash since we now mostly remember to take our green bags.) I delivered everything to Lynda today and spent a few hours helping and encouraging her - but yes, forgot to take photos! Ah well ... next time!

And now I'm heading off to pop the kettle on and make a list of the projects I want to work on this weekend, cos we actually have a WHOLE weekend free of plans ... so far! So, I'm hoping to spend quite a lot of time in the sewing room - I may even be able to show you the things that I work on this time! Tee! Hee! Hee! I hope you all have a fabulous weekend and find some time to do something just for "YOU". Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!

Kerryanne English said...

Yo, ho, ho and NO bottle of rum 'cos me little seabear and I are sipping on chilled lemon lime and bitters this very warm evening.

Aahhh Kris, we love this cute little fella. We found a special shelf just for him in the kitchen but everytime I turn my back he gets into mischief. It would appear that Miss Aimee has deep affection for the still nameless bear and he abscons to her room with her often.

Thank you once again for such a generous gift - we love him.
Hugs ~ Kerryanne
