Leaden skies and heavy rain are washing the colour out of my day, painting it a miserable grey. Luckily I'm about to go to my sewing room to work on a colourful themed competition project I have been invited to participate in by the 'Teddy Bear Scene' magazine, so the weather really doesn't matter to me!
I think this one is probably a honeysuckle ...
I'm working with a blast of red, white and blue mohair to create a patriotic bear. I still need to find some suitable snippets to detail him with, which hopefully I will find somewhere in the World Wide Web today. When my bear is finished, he will be photographed for the magazine to take part in their special competition feature, due to be published in two or three months' time. As I can't share him with you just yet, I'm feeling the urge to brighten this dismal day with a splash of bold colour anyway ... enjoy!
