Remember that deflated balloon that was meant to be a diversion from my non-progressing hoodie? "A stuffed pear" - that's my hubby's observation on Friday night though he knows I am not that crazy to go into fruit crochet yet!
Not quite the word I was looking for. Getting worried.
Witness the transformation within 24 hours.
Yes, I brought it along to the special edition of Knit & Stitch on Saturday as it's meant to be gifted that evening at a house party.
Why... it's a Vera bear! A little gal named Vera is the lucky recipient. Hmm, I didn't know what kind of reaction to expect from little gals on receiving handmade gifts. Her parents are impressed though. I *heard* she has 10 teddy bears so perhaps that accounted for her 3 seconds pause take on "I made this just for you" comment! Drats, I should have made a bunny for a bigger impact I suppose. But she did thank me for the bear...she's quite a shy gal.
Here's the details:
See what I mean? When one's totally engrossed or focused, time really flies!
