A change is as good as a holiday..

Chateau Teddy is a rather sad place to be today :o(  Over the weekend my Chief Quality Control Officer and regular sewing companion lost her 13 month battle with mammary cancer...  Wasn’t she beautiful *lip wobble* she was diagnosed Easter 2010, and this was a snap I took of her frolicking in the garden (while I sewed, of course) during Easter 2011.
She produced some absolutely gorgeous wee kitties in her day, and one of my enduring memories of her will be her absolute certainty that any (and every lol) panda I made was one of her babies, and as such needed to be stolen away rescued... ahhh, I have so many happy memories of her sitting on my work table calmly watching as I chose ribbons, sewed noses, flicked eyeballs all over the room set in eyes *sigh* :o(  And because of that, trying to work on bears makes me miss her even more right now, so I am taking a wee break and trying my hand at some non-teddy projects :o)  They do say a change is as good as a holiday :oP and working on THIS matryoshka doll embroidery with super colourful thread is certainly making a lovely change ... 
... aaaand you know me - or even if you don’t but have read a few of my posts, you will know that a spot of shopping always makes me feel better, so I gave in and grabbed this Oh-So-Adorable teddy fabric *squeeeeeeee* isn’t it beyond cute :o)  Now I just have to decide how best to use it .... hmmmm .... *adjusts thinking cap*
