A Finish

Yes, I said a finish.  Would you believe I actually have one bear finished?   My sister's jacket....

produced this little guy..or girl.

Black, shiny material is so hard to photograph.  I had to fiddle with the exposure so you could at least see the eyes.  One down and 22 to go.  I actually have another half sewn.  Obviously, my tectonic  plates are lined up and I'm hoping my life starts to balance out a bit.  My sister is safely tucked into a transitional care unit until she regains her strength.  She's had more problems but I'm not going to give all the sad details.  I visited with her today and she is slowly recovering.  Thank you for all the prayers.

I also finished painting the bedroom closet.  I've never painted a closet before and I never want to do another one like this.

Why the builder put two shelves in there I'll never know.  And, they were put in before the doorway walls were erected.  How else could 12 foot planks get in there?  Okay, the bedroom is painted.  Now I have to wait for Rog's grandson to come to take a dresser before I can tackle the floor cleaning.  In the meantime, I'll get another bear finished and paint another wall in the next room.  I'm also working on my swap partner's doll quilt.  That's my 5-7 a.m. project.  

The weather has finally turned cooler which makes outside work more enjoyable.  Plenty of that coming up in the next few weeks.  

A friend of mine sent me this and I will share:

Life is short,
time is fast, 
no replay,
no rewind, 
so enjoy
every moment
as it comes.

Have a great weekend.

The bear looks great - cute way to use the button on the front.
