and here is the finished bear
back when my daughter was little, I made dozens of this style bear
when my friend ask if I could make one of these for her new great grand daughter, my biggest concern was could I find the pattern --- after all, I can build one of them practically in my sleep
I used to make these out of robe velour, but apparently that is a fabric that is no longer available (at least it wasn't available in my local stores), so this one is made out of fleece
pretty cute --- totally baby safe, washable --- just a good kid toy all around
I don't make bears much any more, but I'm guessing I need to hang on to this pattern
the beading continues
the openings in the backing are where I'll add the slices of shell in much the same way I added the big oval ruby glass in the chocolate cherry piece
this is a new technique for me and it's been fun finding ways to use it
the DH says the outline looks like one of those animal skulls on the desert -- I'm working on transforming it
yesterday I entered the mug piece in the contest I made it for --- I ended up titling it "Full 'o Beans" --- now I just have to remember to check their blog on Dec 12 to see if I make it into the finals
I've been doing some research the last couple of days, and I'm sure there is an answer out there, I just haven't been able to find it yet.
At the recent doctor's appointment, the doctor changed some of the DH's medications. Because his insurance mandates a mail in pharmacy, we had already ordered and received the next 3 months of one of these medications.
My first call was to the mail pharmacy to see if I could just return them -- they are all still sealed. Nope, they won't take them back.
Next I called the doctor's office to see if they could take them and pass them on to someone in their practice. Nope, I was told if I brought them in they would just flush them down the toilet (WHAT!? I know that is a BAD idea!!!)
So now I'm searching for someone that can use this medication, still in the packaging sealed by the manufacturer. It just seems wrong to just throw it away.
