Sewing and Bears

Sewing and being creative is really important in my life right now.  Right up there alongside baking he he.  My sewing tends to centre around my bears and sock animals but of course I try to make extra time for some dressmaking too.  I think we all need things to do that make us feel happy. Things that make us feel good. Creating something, building, making all those things can help us feel destressed and give us a sense of fulfillment when they are completed. They occupy our hands and minds. David Beckham builds lego models. My mum knits. My Dad completes the crossword. I bake and sew. Sewing is considerably better for my waistline.

So a normal evening for me is sat with the sewing machine in front of me and something fabric like in my hands.  I love to see the end result and know how cherished the bears will be or how nice it is to have lovely unique clothes.  I choose a movie to watch or something I’ve recorded on Sky+. I feel content that the kids are happily snuggled up in their beds and I sometimes treat myself to a small glass of something cheeky.

The bears are my favourite makes. My daughter in particular loves the bears and a few of them cause tears when they get packed up for posting. This bear was treated to a snack and some small talk and she wasn’t happy to part with him. Lots of the bears just seem to be boys. I wonder why we think of all teddy bears as male?
