Long, long time

Still making bears.

Last year, this bear, Gretchen, appeared in the magazine Soft Dolls & Animals.  Way cool.

I used to be a vest-


Two decades ago when I started bear making, a friend gave me a vest made out of fur.  Her sister had given it to her but she no longer wanted it. 

I told her I would give her the bear that I made from it but when it was done, I just couldn't.  I gave her another bear I made though.

I can see what I didn't know about trimming-- the ears, the muzzle, around the nose area BEFORE you insert the plastic nose!-- but I still think he's cute. 

To this very day.
