Bargain Bill’s and Bears

With unstuffed bears piling up (if you consider two bears a pile, which I do, because I like to finish my bears as I go!), I really wanted to find fiberfill without having to drive very far. Luckily, my mom reminded me about Bargain Bill’s in Rice Lake (Wisconsin). It’s a craaaaaaazy place!

   
This is the craft hangar, I mean room. My photos don’t do it justice.  It’s so huge, there are so many goods…

 But the Wee Girl and I managed to get just the fiberfill and a crafty project each for her and the Wee Boy. 

And thus, I was able to finish my pile of bears this evening. 

 Meet Teresa and Unique! And pardon the late night lighting.  
 
Teresa is named for an aunt of mine.   Unique is named for the character on Glee.  

In non-yarny craft news, the kids and I worked on a fairy house today. Well…. I struggled to make something stable-ish out of driftwood and nails, while they wandered around, sometimes deciding on the decor, sometimes climbing fences and pretending twine is a lasso…

 
The result will topple if you so much as look at it sideways, but the kids are pleased. As you can see, by the end I was so over it that I merely placed the last bits of birchbark roofing rather than securing it. It’s raining now, so I wonder what it’ll look like tomorrow!
