I've finished one of my two bears for Teddy Talk's challenge, "A Friend is for Life." I had been pretty nervous about doing this particular bear and to my relief it has turned out well. I was really sweating over whether I could pull it off. Oh, I'm not making much sense, am I? Oh well, you will soon understand everything.
Oh, you say you can't see it because it's hiding behind the white bear. Well, yes, that is true. I just don't have the heart to spoil your surprise! If you saw the bear that's hiding you would understand everything about the pair of bears I'm making. So, I'm sorry, but you will have to be patient for a few more days. Soon the white bear will be finished and you'll know the whole story. He just needs some ears, some shading, and I suppose it would be a good idea to stuff him as well. I will tell you a secret though--he's going to have posable arms! I'm very excited about that.
As for my new 18" bear, he is all cut out with his seams trimmed and sealed. I'm pleased with his progress. I just finished sewing his head together about an hour ago--sorry, I don't have pictures of that yet. And before dinner, while talking to Matt, I pinned up his body and legs! So, if you will now excuse me, I have a date with my sewing machine!
