Pandas, etc.

The first pic is another little benefit of being sick. Von, you said you thought you could feel a fever coming on, LOL! My DH was in a department store and saw this Boyds bear above, and it's dressed in a wild cat costume. You pull it off, and he's just a cute white Boyds. The book is a riot, and he picked that up, along with an outdated (Dec.) copy of the British "Cross Stitcher" magazine that has nothing notable in it (but it's the thought that counts), while he was in a Barnes & Noble. The stash below is a 3 pack of Silkweaver I received yesterday, along with 2 beautiful needle minders, a Dololly, and an 11" Q-Snap frame, which were part of a couple orders from SB&B. Yes, there is more yet to post. I have an order from Country Cottage too, and yet another order being processed by SB&B.


I had said I'd get a pic of my pandas up yesterday, but that plan just didn't work out. I normally keep them behind glass, so I had to take them all out to prevent glare. I'm afraid you can't tell much about each one the way they're all crowded together on a little bench. The pandas are a teeny fraction of my complete bear collection.

I'll be going on a short trip with my parents and my sister for a few days, and since my parents are rather slow and laid back, it will be pretty low key, which is about all I can handle right now. I'm still not quite up to par, but we always have a great time. I'm so fortunate at my age to have both my wonderful parents. See you soon!

Well, being sick has some rewards I see! ;) What a great bunch of stash and how thoughtful of your husband! That cat is so cute. :)

Those pandas are a riot! I love them all, but the purple one is my favorite. Very adorable, what a fun thing to collect. :D

Love those pandas! I know what you mean by 'only a fraction of my collection'. I could never get all mine in one photo either.
Pat Richard on the back for me for getting you some goodies.
