other bears and an elephant as well gg




The top picture is the Joan Watters Red Bear way back in time- I am sure I changed her pattern around a bit but not sure- I was at that stage fairly rigidly following a person pattern, and would be so upsset if it didnt look the same !!

The next picture is of the Purple bear- this was the first time I had ever embroidered on felt and its still made using wool embroidery threads - an interesting experiment mmmmmmmmm anyway it didnt put me off as I then did the pink elephant on ehite Felt as well.

Sorry bout the picture quality I was really bad with a camera then as well- not much better now am I?? But I think I am a wee bit better both at embroidery and also holding a camera still - plus with digital cameras you can see straight away if its a clean print or not so thats prolly why I have improved with the camera holding

Hope you enjoyed this little look back in time I cant belie4ve how bad I was back then -!!

You are AWESOME! I can't IMAGINE creating such perfect, tiny things! Your bears are ALL beautiful! JUST LIKE THE BEAR WHO MADE THEM! Love you!

Awww, they're darling, Bear! I especially love the elephant. Someone made me one when I was about 4, but it mysteriously disappeared before I had time to play with it.
Happy New Year, dear friend!

The Bears and Elephant is beautiful sweetie, what you mean they are horrible. I love them and would love to call them mine. Just make sure when you move house you leave a forwarding address where Caty can find you.
