A friend asked whether I could make teddy bears from the clothing of a relative who had died. Not one bear, but six, a whole herd (flock? gaggle?--maybe just a family) of bears. So I sewed and stuffed and finished the last one yesterday. They don't have bows yet, as we have to decide what kind of ribbon is best. But here they are:

Don't they look like a class ready for instruction? So that's one project completed. I'm also working on drawings for Susan Shie's Lucky Drawing 106 online class.

Don't sit around waiting for inspiration or some magical/perfect technique--get out a pen and draw something. I won't post drawings here, as they're not yet ready for prime time. But one day, maybe I'll develop the courage.
