the grands make teddy bears

Here you can see the grands and their teddy bears that they made yesterday with grandma's help. They each used thread and needle as well as the sewing machine. It was a very fun but tiring day for this old grandma. LOL

Metallic ornaments

Along with the multi colored ornaments I decided to try gold and silver metallics and love them. Here you get to see some of them and a close up of a couple of them. This is so fun but my fiber arts are beginning to get left behind. Oooops!!!

What I've been doing lately

I've been busy with various things, playing with great grands, playing at ornaments made from toilet tissue rolls and glass beads, paint and micro-beads. They really are fun!! I also made a teddy bear from wool felt. I'll do presewing and then help the grands stuff and finish them on their next play day. They come every other Wednesday afternoon on early release days from school. They are loving it and are so enthusiastic. A few hours wears me out. LOL They are 8 year old Makayla and 5 year old Logan. Also there is a photo of the quilt I finished for Makayla. LOL
