I have fallen in love with the Teddy Bear.

I made a pattern and cut a Bear out of an old felted wool sweater.

In the evenings I am stiching Bear by hand.
Her body is finished and ready for stuffing.
I chose two buttons my Great Grandmother made for Bear's eyes.
Tonight I will begin making Bear's face.
I will give her a nose and a mouth.

I will sew up her ears.

She already has a heart.

I have requested a few books from the library.
 I need the patterns.

Learning to make stuffed animals
is very fun.

Right now I am head over heels in love with Bears.
As soon as she is finished I will take photographs.
I hope to make many Bears from old felted wool sweaters.
I do not mind Winter any more.
 It is Bear season.

Dear Sherry,
I also love bears......bears bring out the child in us.
Your bear is going to be very beautiful.....I love her heart, all bears should have a heart.

I look forward to seeing her. All bears are unique, showing their charm and character in their little faces.
