Christmas Bear Skin Rugs

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year everybody!
Hope you guys had great holidays. We went out to sunny southern California for Christmas. The only thing I like about the flights there and back are the 5+ hours of uninterrupted crochet time while listening to a good audio book. On this trip, I listened to the Hunger Games (book 2) and worked on more teddy bears for the Spring craft fair. After making the first one, I decided to use up all my scrap cotton yarn and make more "patch-work" bears. I think they will be very cute. I was able to create 4 "bear skins" before I got home. Creepy or cool?

Did you think I was gone?

Yea, I would too if I were you but really it's just crazy around here. We've really decided to downsize our house now that the kid is out and going to college. So almost right after the craft fair we started a structured schedule of de-cluttering. See:


And getting the rooms "neutralized" with new paint. So it's a bit of a mess around here but between all that and 2 trips out of town (crocheting on a plane) I managed to make 2 Minnie mouse hats and a purple bear for friends. Whatcha think?
