I must confess that I'm lacking somewhat in the motivation department of late. Maybe it's the colder winter weather. Maybe it's the days that get light so late and dark so early. Maybe it's just me.

Yesterday, I received a nice package from a friend of mine, and inside were all manner of trims and trinkets. Many of them can be adornments for my bears! I know I'll have such fun mixing and matching. Thank you so much, Anna!

So I'm still not completely motivated, but I think I'll turn off this computer and start trimming seams on the bear I finished sewing recently. I'm eager to see what she'll look like. She'll be one of my Crew members for the online Blooming Bear show coming up in March. Can't wait! (OK, I guess there's a little motivation there, after all.)


  1. I look forward to seeing your new bear - even though I will have to wait for several more weeks. I think it will be worth it!


  2. Happy Bear Making Debora! We love to see your bears =)


  3. I know how you feel, I can't seem to get motivated lately either. There are three bears waiting oh so patiently...maybe they are waiting for Spring?

    Maybe we should get together and work on motivating each other!

    Hugs, Kelly

  4. I know what you mean Deb, I haven't done any sewing in weeks!! I need to get back into the swing of things!

  5. Oh I understand Debora! It's the same thing for me since December! I'm sewing a new polar bear today, a little one of 8" with a new design, so motivation is here today! Ouf!
    I am sure that you will recover motivation very soon, may be a new mohair, a new design could give you what you lost...
    See you later.

  6. Good luck finding your mojo again. I keep getting distracted, which means I'm not bearing that much either right now. I have one bear done just waiting for his accessories to be finished, and another that's about half cut out. I'm doing a giveaway on my blog right now though, so better get my arse in gear making that at least!

  7. i'm not so concentrate much, still needs motivation :0), but after reading other artist pace, seems i 've to move to my sewing table.
    right now, a white bear still needs me to give him an outfit, cos outside is quite cold and there are still stuff on readings...
    yes, wish to get more inspiration before i start on the theme of Beatrix Potter.

  8. Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog Debora! I'm sure you will feel inspired again soon. I think we should all hibernate during January and February! :o)


We love getting comments here in the Crew studio. Thank you for taking a peek at New Avenue Crew and leaving us your calling card. Blessings and bear hugs to you!
