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

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.
