Slowly to warm up...believe me it ain't easy!

Well it's a fact, it is:
I managed to find my way to the pc-room and my studio
Boy oh boy, the summer passed by much too quick i.m.h.o.
(i.m.h.o. = in my humble opinion)
I really enjoyed the last weeks of August.

Well not the whole week, until Wednesday everything was ok.
On Thursday I was stung by a wasp in my neck. 
Since I am allergic to wasp stings I was very lucky to be at a craft show with an emergency post. 
One of the ladies sucked it, sterilized it, and applied a cold compress. 
Goodness me, it was a very nasty stung which caused me a lot of pain during the day and the night to follow. I didn't sleep at all.
Lotsa Hydrocortisone cream & pain killers were needed and now I'm fine...pffff...at last.
I hate these insects from the bottom of my heart. I think this one sneaked into the hall while they set-up all the booths. And it appeared he attacked others too.
At last he got caught by one of the exhibitors who managed to kill him, BLOODY WASP!!!
And now it's SEPTEMBER and I'm back into my studio working on a new teddy bear design
which I made a couple of weeks ago.
These are the colors I work with: soft peach pinks & creams. 
They were on my whish-list for quite a while.
I always pick a lot of fabrics & supplies
and use what will be the most perfect match for the new piece.
I want to create a very ROMANTIC vignette.
The bear has been cut and...
...several parts have been stitced too. 
Legs & arms are completed, and so is the body.The head is stitched and must be filled.
I'm very curious about the final result, which will be a surprise for me too.
It will take a couple of weeks, before the whole piece/set will be completed.
I want to make pictures of my DIY (= Do It Yourself) Projects of which I told you in my previous post.
But I will take it easy in the first week to come. I always feel a little sad as summer nears it's end.
I'm not an Autum lover as long as I live.
I really need some time to adjust the change of season....patience dust needed!
But lucky me, the inside teddy bear and craft show season will also start!!!
YEAH!!! The sun always shines that's a fact too.

Oh Thea, I am so sorry to hear of that sting. Do you carry an Epi-Pen with you? They are for stinging insects and work within seconds. It can save your life. I carry one in my purse and keep one in the bathroom.

Be careful.

I do agree with "The Bear's Blog" though and you should have an Epi-Pen with you at all times!!! Can't wait to see your new creation!!! Be good to yourself!!!

Oh no wasp stings are awful. I love the colour combinations you have for your next project, I love seeing what comes off your bench.
Hugs and stay away from stinging insects.

I visited your blog today -I saw you on another friend's. Your blog is so charming, and I love dolls and teddy bears too. When my mom passed away, we were all given one of her bears, and every time my girls travel now, they take their grandma's bear with them. Do you make the dolls yourself? Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is very cheerful to me, and it is so lovely. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
