Miniature Teddy Bear & Canvas Work

My Needlework girls will be happy that I have finally sewn the arms and legs onto this tiny teddy bear we are doing this week so they can have a sneak preview! She found a lovely spot to sit in a grevillea bush in my garden so I could photograph her!

Another little snippet of canvas work which I have been finishing off - I need to find the rest of the variegated thread to sew it together! I will hopefully put my hands on the wayward skein of thread later this afternoon. Then I really must get back to my "Gardener's Journal" Quilt. My next square needs to be finished by the end of June!!

And a photo of my lovely knitted cardigan I bought at the Craft Fair in Sydney last weekend. This photo for some reason does not do the colour justice - it is a beautiful green - but the knitting is superb and it is a design by Claire Patterson. She also sells at the Old Bus Depot Markets in Canberra for those of you who live there! It is so warm and so lovely and I didn't even have to knit a stitch!!


  1. Your teddy bear is adorable Fiona! Love your canvas work too. As I only do cross stitch I really admire anyone who can do a other crafts too :)

  2. Aww what a sweet teddy! Your canvas wip looks lovely and that cardi is gorgeous.

  3. All of your projects are so pretty!
