The Teddy Bear Artists and Friends' (TBAAF) Awards were announced this past weekend and I found out that "Johnny Appleseed" won second place in the Novice Bear Artist/Maker category,
and "Jack" won second place in the Felted Bear and Animal Critter category.
Such a nice surprise! I had forgotten that the TBAAF Awards were coming up. I actually didn't think I had a chance as there were over 600 entries and some amazingwork. To be honest, I didn't even vote for Johnny or Jack!
