How Cool is That?!!

WOW!  A red letter day!  My eldest daughter was snooping about in my mohair stash this morning looking for something to inspire her and she found a sumptious dense cream-colored mohair on which I had already traced out a new teddy bear pattern .  WooHoo!  It was like Christmas all over!

When I had been making my youngest daughter's Christmas teddy bear, she originally chose this beautiful stuff.  But when she saw the soft silky vintage mohair that I had purchased in November, her heart's desire switched to having a panda. 

I had completely forgotten about already having started a bear for her.  So today, in between working on the "elephump" pattern, I cut the new cutie-patootie out. I just feel so fired up now!

I wish a happy day to you all!
Heaps of Hugs,
