Goodness gracious! You have all been keeping me VERY busy with all of your wonderfully lovely responses to Sammy! Thank you SO much--your kind words have meant so much to me and have been deeply touching. I enjoy my little bears and it's just so nice to know that others like them so very much, too. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
As you've probably noticed, I missed posting my latest "Favorites on Fridays." However, you will be very happy to know that I spent my time well. I have been carefully entering all of you into my drawing and making sure that you each get all of the entries you are entitled to. I wish I could give you each a bear. I have decided that I make Sammy's pattern available on Etsy in the next month or so. That way, for those of you who do not win, you could make your own Sammy if you chose.
I've also just finished the two bigger bears that I put in the preview a week or so ago and am finishing up a little bear. I'm pleased with how they have turned out and will post pictures when the little one is done. These three are going to Clarion, Iowa for the June 10th-13th "Teddy Bear Reunion in the Heartland" and will be at the table of the "The Bear Scout." I'm so thankful to Felicia for taking them on their journey to find forever homes. How I wish I could be there, too!
