What happens when there is no shelf space?

The shelves are full and now it seems like the 
ROBOTS are climbing the walls 

I designed this after seeing for many months while 
watching a USA soap opera (which i have been watching
every weekday for  30 years) one of the actors had three
people climbing the wall. And all i would do is that would 
make good idea for robots.

Name that show??

SPUTNIK Day (First man made object in space)

Today is SPUTNIK Day 
 (First man made object  in space 59 years ago today )
So it is time for Neal to have another flag for his
bike. (though sadly he will not be out on the bicycle today 
as it is raining and raining and raining today )
I designed in embrilliance and embroidered on the 
brother embroidery machine

Tibbers (Korimco bear) another bear to tell his story

My name is Tibbers Korimco
I came from a second had shop and sat on the couch
with George Gibson for 4 months 
it was a very happy life.
Till Susan's and Neal's son arrived in Tasmania 
for a visit.
Then  I heard Susan telling Martyn to read 
a blog post from back in June and then Martyn 
picked me up and handed me to Susan.
All was fine till Susan got her scissors out and 
cut a hole in my back and Pulled out my stuffing
Now I know how George felt that day !
Soon after I was put on the Hoop
OUCH now what has she done she has put me in 
the tattooing machine 
Half way done (painful)
She put me back in the machine
and added some wording
Get me off this hoop!
NOW for some stuffing please
Ahh that is better
now my eyes are looking better too

very nicely tattooed
OK now I am in the arms of a BOY who will 
love and cherish me
OH big hug
Think now he is a little shy

I am happy being back to a different kind of normal
now that Martyn boy is talking about something called an
Airplane what is this? George told me nothing about this ?
OK I know what to do. Susan is not at her computer and it 
is still on. Be right back!

 OH NO this looks  not right! birds fly bears are not 
made to fly!!!
I have a day to find a good place to hide.
Somewhere where I will not be found
SHHHHH don't tell Martyn he might forget me 
and leave me here!
Please keep my secret.

Weaving PLUS sewing makes a bag

When weaving a scarf now on the 
sampler rigid heddle loom. I add extra 
warp so I have some fabric after I have finished 
to use on other projects. So 
when i wove a scarf in this pink/black yarn
I also had enough over to make a couple of pockets for bags.
But discovering that it was not wide enough for my bag
pattern, I had to rethink it and so i thought i would make 
an extra pocket for the bag on the other side and 
I added machine stitching on the fabric part of the bag to 
match with the weaving .
