Baaaad clicky finger (but they were so CUTE!).

I was over browsing eBay this morning, not looking for anything in particular. That is usually a bad thing.... And today was no different. *sigh* I ended up with 4 totally cute little items, though - little bear pincushion kits from Morningstar Embroidery. Everything is included - bears, fabric (both to stitch on and to make the rest of the cushion), ribbon, and flower thread. I'm not usually crazy about bears, but a bear with a PURPOSE....now there's something I can get behind! ::lol:: The seller had these 4 kits up in lots of 2, and I won them for a ridiculously low price (it will cost under $8, including shipping). I looked at the Morningstar website, and the kits retail for $21.50 EACH, so I think I did ok, even if I really only like 2 of the 4 for myself. The other 2 can be gifts or RAKs, or they may find their way back to eBay - who knows.


I like the first bear in each pic - the one with the shamrocks and the one with the red roses. I'm not crazy about red-white-and-blue stuff, or schoolbuses, so I can see those ones moving on.....

Cute kits!!! I was gonna say, if you don't like the shamrock one...LOL. If you ever come across any lighthouse stuff, you know where you can unload it. :)
Yeah, eBay is soooooo baaaaaaaaad for stitching addicts. Every time a new kit or leaflet comes in the mail, Sean's like "Uh, don't you have enough to last you a lifetime?" LOL

Cute bears! I like the two you like the best too... but at the same time you don't need to follow the directions, you can stitch whatever you want on the July and September ones...

Congrats on the ebay win!
