Friday Night Sew In

I didn't decide until the last minute what I was going to do this week.  There was so much choice that I couldn't make up my mind.  I finally decided that I would stitch these two teddy bears on some calico.

They are stitch using madeira thread, three strands throughout.  It is mostly satin stitch, with backstitch outlining the ball and collar.

I started tea time, and carried on stitching until it was finished.  I was determined this was going to be done before I went to bed.  When I get the opportunity, this will be the front to a nursery bag.

Ohmy----I wouldn't even know where to begin a task like that; I don't "sew" {{other than on my sewing machine}}.
