Freebie and a show and tell...

Today's freebie is the last for this year. I am taking off the kids winter break starting friday and going thru the 4th of January... I might pop in a few days after Christmas but it's family time until then...

Here is the freebie for today a 2010 celebration dragon....

And a bit of show and tell, my wife wanted a brown teddy bear for the bed when it's made (I do make it most days) and not wanting to buy a bear I got a kit and hand sewed (is that a word) this little fella all by myself, Sewing machines and I don't get along, he's 16 inches sitting...


pictures aren't that good...

Awww! it will mean so much more to her than a store bought bear. I'm impressed dustin! Most men would be afraid to pick up a needle and thread! You're one of a kind!

Oh my goodness. Aren't you the clever one! Good job you! I'm sure you got brownie points for that. AND you make the bed.

Thanks for the freebie. Hope you and your family have a lovely christmas.
