I made this for a requested bear order for a small bear, now have one for a large bear, but was excited to learn a new “sewing” technique. Creating an eyelet-decorated vest for the Steampunk Bears. I have 7 orders for them, so have been working on the bears and the vests. So I got the eyelets, and the eyelet clamp to add them and read the directions and was clueless. Tried a number of things, and finally gave up and looked it up on Youtube for a video demonstration. Within seconds, I had my first eyelet-decorated vest. 🙂 <3
I do Google searches all the time to figure out how to do something that’s escaping me, so why not for something like that? And it worked! Love the Internet.
Anyway, there’s her eyelet-decorated vest. She still needs her hat and this bear is sold. 🙂 <3 Working on 7 more. They’re all a little different from one another and when I have them finished, I’ll show them off.
In the meantime, I’m working hard to read through the rest of A Silver Wolf Christmas. I’m having trouble with saving. I save and go back and find that my edited work HASN’T saved. And I’m having to revise sections I know I changed. So not sure what’s up with that.
And I have another bear to make that is a really unusual fur. A customer behind me at the fabric store asked me what I was going to do with that??? And I said, “Make a bear.” I think it will be cute, but I never know for sure until I actually create the bear. So far, I have only had a couple of “ugly” bears by taking a risk. The fur was curly and the fabric too stretchy. So it wouldn’t hold it’s shape when stuffing. I say they were ugly, but they actually turned out cute, but I gave them away as freebies.
So along with this fun getting ready to party with the celebration for our box set release, I’m giving away another ebook. This one is for a Highlander medieval book (not a wolf book, I don’t have ecopies of those). If you’ve only read my wolf books and would like to read a Highland medieval book, tell me why and a lucky winner will win a copy. I can only give a copy of Highland Rake, Taming the Wild Highlander, The Highlander or Her Highland Hero. The first two books: Winning the Highlander and The Accidental Highlander are in a box set, two for the price of one, and it’s with a publisher. So I can’t give copies of it away.
From USA Today Bestselling Author, Terry Spear, comes the long-awaited bundle of her popular two-book Highlander romance series—Winning the Highlander’s Heart and The Accidental Highland Here.
WINNING THE HIGHLANDER’S HEART
Lady Anice vows to flee the amorous advances of King Henry I and return to her home in the Highlands where she hopes to find a laird to wed. She soon discovers her staff has vanished. Premonitions of imminent danger warn her of foul play, and she is certain she is cursed when it comes to marriage.
The king orders the Highlander Laird Malcolm MacNeill, who is seeking an English bride, to provide the lass safe escort and learn what has become of her staff. Escorting her home safely proves a dangerous trial in and of itself and Malcolm has difficulty keeping his heart out of the matter. When the king wishes Lady Anice be wed to one of his loyal barons, the issue is further complicated. Losing his heart to the lass means Malcolm could very well lose his head.
THE ACCIDENTAL HIGHLAND HERO
Lady Eilis Dunbarton’s life undergoes a drastic change with the death of her cousin, Agnes. Now she’s faced with the disagreeable prospect of marrying the man who was to be her cousin’s husband. Not by a change of contract, though. Instead, by deceit—pretending to be her cousin. But if her husband-to-be discovers she’s not really Agnes, her life is forfeit. So what choice does Eilis have but to flee?
When Laird James MacNeill’s clan rescues a half-drowned lass from the sea, there is speculation she is of the enemy clan, especially since she doesn’t remember her own name. James is immediately enticed with the lady, but his focus must remain on finding the proper bride. For if he does not wed soon, he must give up his holdings to one of his younger brothers. Focus slips away with each day Eilis is close, and James finds himself contemplating the thought of taking her to wife without knowing her true identity.
But how dangerous would the end result be? And what will happen if Eilis’s husband-to-be comes looking for her only to find her in the arms of another man?
If you were to go back in time to medieval Scotland, what would you want to be: the leader, one of the clansmen/women, the blacksmith, sheep herder, farmer, the stable master? The lady running the household? Cook? And if you were a lass, who would you set your sights on, no matter if you were the scullery maid? And for the brawny warriors–who would you chose to be your bonnie lass?
It turned COLD. 57 here today. And that’s COLD. 🙂 <3 But I’m loving it. Though this is not a shorts day. And it’s ONLY getting up to 78. Can you believe it? And we had rain last night! Love it!
It’s going to get back up to the 90’s, so glad to get some refreshing cool weather.
And that’s it! Have a lovely, cool day and I’m off to revise more of A Silver Wolf Christmas and hope my revisions stick!

I love both the bears. So cute!
I just finished listening to Winning the Highlander’s heart. I read it a long time ago and wanted to revisit it. I enjoyed the audio.
Thanks, Bonnie! I’m so glad you enjoyed it!! 🙂 And thanks on the bears! They turned out so cute!
Tinsel bear would fit in with my Christmas bear collection …and you know how I feel about your books.
LOL, thanks, Annetta. Yes, she would make a nice addition to anyone’s Christmas bear collection! 🙂 <3 Thanks about loving my books! That's why I have so much fun writing them!
Love your bears!!! I’m thinking maybe some day you’ll have bear shifters???
I think I’m going to have to, Diane! 🙂 Some day!
Oh I like Diane’s idea. Maybe put a zipper on the back of them and when you pull the fur off there’s a hot naked guy.
LOL, was working on steampunk bear hats and came back to work on A Silver Wolf Christmas, but saw your comment and had to laugh. 🙂 <3
Oh how precious! I need to see if I can afford to get one of your bears for my grand-daughter. 😀 PS… LOVE your books! <3
