Decapitation, a lost eye and some good news.

I went through a bear making phase many years ago and this chap is the only one I had left. He was getting grubby so I put him through the washing machine. I've done it before, but perhaps not on the 1400 spin speed. I've given all the joints away so perhaps I can do some sort of fix but I'll have to remember he's not safe for children any more.
And then I found Paddington with his eye out.... I expect there's some way of fixing his sight.

The good news is I have the last side of this border in place finally. I am very pleased with how it's looking. I think the next border shall have swags and I'll place another narrow strip of the navy dot between them.


  1. I love it! All of it: The bears and the quilt. My husband's grandmother makes teddy bears. She gets fur coats at garage sales and the salvation army, then makes them out of those. They're wonderful!

    I love Paddington and his golashes.

  2. That quilt is looking great. I love that last border!

  3. You sure know how to get our attention! Thank goodness it's just the bears with these problems.

    The quilt is looking great. I had my doubts - some of those fabrics not my style, but you have done wonderful things here.

  4. Oh Sally that is stunning...I just know this is going to be another show stopper!

  5. The quilt is lookig fabulous, Sally
    i am looking forward to seeing the next border :-)

    Hope the trapped nerve is getting better?

  6. I love your quilt, this is a masterpiece. Now that I saw how you made the border, i appreciate it even more. Bravo. I can't wait to see it finished.
