Tempis Fugit ...!!

Time flies ... whether you're having fun or not!! :0) I know I've been a bit of a slack blogger in the last couple of weeks, but I just seem to keep running out of hours in the day ... or maybe I just need to start making shorter "To Do" lists! Tee! Hee! Hee! Let's see if I can catch you up without the post getting so long that Chookyblue needs TWO cuppas to get through it! :0)

Project "Sewing Room Make Over & De-clutter" is still underway. There has been progress ... it just seems to have been a bit slower than hoped for due to a busy week. Will show some update photos in the next few days ... promise! :0) And my messy sewing room confessions have brought a few more "Chaotic Creators" out of the closet ... pop across to encourage my blogging buddy Toni ... she's also decided to be brave and tackle her creative chaos. :0) We can do it Toni!!!

In between work and de-cluttering, I've managed to finish writing instructions etc. for my latest pattern design ... "Old Ted Wall Hangings".

I love how these matching wall hangings have come together and the "Pure" fabrics were just right ... though if you wanted to make it for a little girl's room, I reckon something like the pink, blue, green and brown combination of the "Lily & Will" range would work well too. This pattern will be listed on the Tag Along Teddies web site this week as a paper pattern and as a downloadable pattern, so stay tuned! And since it's fun to share the love ... leave a comment on THIS post telling me an 'Old Ted' story and I'll be back on Friday to draw the names of TWO lucky people to win a copy of "Old Ted Wall Hangings". So, put your story-telling caps on! :0)

When I wasn't working, de-cluttering or writing pattern instructions ... I've spent a bit of time at my Home-away-from-home this last week helping the lovely Marion and Steph get ready for a very special event that's on this weekend. And since I'm about to head off to spend some time there ... I'll tell you all about it next post! :0) I know ... I'm a horrible tease ... but you LOVE me!! Tee! Hee! Hee!

Hope you're having a great weekend, whether you're de-cluttering, de-stressing or just enjoying some kick-back-and-stitch time. Til next time ...


PS. Pop across to the lovely Kerryanne's blog to 'meet' her latest sewing buddy and then take a peek at her newly updated website ... I will warn you though ... there are LOTS of pretties, so you might be tempted to buy up big! Tee! Hee! Hee! BH! KRIS

I love the wall hangings together. Very nice. As to a story, well don't have one in particular, but I can tell you my 2-year-old granddaughter carries her's around all the time, and says "This is MY bear" in great 2-yr-old form! He's brown, and is called Brown Bear -- when he's not referred to as MY Bear, LOL!

I have one of my husband's old bears. Must be over 50-yr-old by now! He's pretty worn out, but lovely to me.

AH!!! I know where some of the time goes. Being on this machine. NOW I HAVE to go and check out some more nice blogs you told me about.

Love your "Old Ted" wall hangings.

Keep at the de-cluttering you know they say "Rome was not built in a day"

I love my "Koala" my Dad bought me for my 6th birthday. The dear OLD fella sits on my dressing table.
Is he a BEAR?????

I didn't even need one coffee for that one! ;) Have fun finalising the patterns for your Old Ted hangings :) I don't have an old ted story. I have a special ted story... a special Christmas bear that my grandfather gave me... and my kids now play with him very carefully... as my g'father has been gone for about 20 years now.

Susan In Texas said...

Darn it! I forgot to take a "before" picture of my sewing room clutter. It was pretty bad though, so just use your imagination. lol I'll have to post pictures of my not pristing, but much improved, sewing haven later. Tomorrow, however, I'm announcing my Big 3rd Blogoversary Giveaway - stay tuned!

Happy stitching,
Susan in Texas

Gosh you have been busy! Love the 'old ted' wall hangings. I had a 'mary' bear rather than an old ted but the most loved bear we had was 'tippy' that Mum collected one day at the tip! She was banned from telling any of our friends where he came from ,we were mortified!!

Kerryanne English said...

Well done on the pattern writing Kris, that's another big thing ticked off your "To Do' list.

Thanks for the mention too!
Now I must get back to what I am supposed to be doing.... pattern writing... uugghh!!
Hugs ~ Kerryanne

The Old Ted in our house was a growler. A very large teddy made from sheepskin who growled when he was tilted forwards. This bear was my mothers and she kept him in her room, but we were allowed to play with him so long as he didn't venture outside. He had a couple of trips the hospital for repairs and is now a well loved bear living with some of the grandchildren.
