Knitted Bear

Preface:  I fully realize that I am not a "regular" blogger, however, things are going to slow down even more around here.  I will keep the blog and see how often I post and how much attention I the blog receives and play it by ear in the future. I would love it if you still check in!  I love the interaction of the blogging community, unfortunately/fortunately my personal life is becoming fuller and requiring more attention.

Now about my bear! 

I saw this cute as a button bear on Pinterest and decided I had to make it.  Bubby the Bear.

There was a problem! Mine was not cute!  He looked long and awkward and his "fur" was too dark so when I added his facial features I could not see them.  I became frustrated and put him in a cupboard for many months.

Last night I had a light bulb moment when I saw Bubby on Pinterest again.

My Little knit bear needed a snout!  I found a lighter yarn in my stash, knit a snout and sewed it on.  MUCH better!  He (She?) still has a very long body, but I actually like him(her?) now.

I love finishing projects.
Nothing feels like a bigger waste of time then working on a project that will sit in the cupboard.

And on a completely different note, this is what my car looked like this lovely May 1 morning:
Snowy and cold!!


  1. The bear is adorable. Long AND adorable!!!

  2. The bear is darling--the snout did the trick!

    And about the blogging. . . never let this ghostly, but lovely, digital world get in the way of your real and tangible life. I notice you have a baby (in the header photo) and you write about your 8-year-old. My daughter used to blog a lot when her children were young, but now she pretty much has let it all go, and I applaud her being involved in their lives, rather than all these ephemeral bloggers' lives. So, no worries. This virtual world will still be here when you get a spare moment or two!
