who's been eating my porridge?

I traced a few stitcheries from the Once upon a time pattern to keep me busy.
I have been working on the Three bears this week and have decided to do the stitcheries in different colours. The original is only in green and brown thread but I thought I would make this a colourful quilt.
Here is my progress..


the colours seem a little darker in the photo but they are a few shades lighter.
Love the looks on the bears' faces.
Just the border to go and I will have one block finished. Then to drag out my dollies, it's time I planned some progress for those lovely ladies.
Happy stitching..

Poor Mama bear looks a bit upset, baby bear doesn't quite know what's happened. This will be so cute and I think you have made the correct decision, colour is the way to go.

They are so cute...good idea to add some colour, I like the different coloured bowls...great expressions, I wouldn't want to tangle with that Papa Bear he looks very unimpressed with Goldilocks!...

Nicky said...

Daddy bear does look cross - wonder what he'll do when he catches up with Goldilocks?
