Feed the Bear With Bear Hugs!

Hey everyone!  Hope y'all are having a great week.  I haven't been posting more than once a week, but I've been meaning to share this and it's short.  As you may have heard me say before, I am making quilts for each of our grandchildren, three down and three to go, but I do have all the fabrics and two of the quilts are well on their way to being finished.  When our youngest was born, our son and DIL were in the throes of purchasing a home, so I held off making a baby quilt until I knew what colors were going to be in the baby's room.  Well, two years later (bad me), I now have a larger quilt cut out for Littlest Miss and in colors and prints that will grow with her.  With each quilt I've been making for the Grands, I've also been making a Teddy Bear, and even the older kiddos love them.  Littlest Miss's birthday was at the end of January, and having just gotten the quilt fabric, I decided to go ahead and make her bear for her present.  

These are all the fabrics that I am using in her quilt.  I love the chenille and actually had that in my stash!

Looks kind of hungry, doesn't she?


I've made at least a hundred of these bears.  When I was working, I would always make and donate a bear or two whenever there was any kind of fund-raiser.  Invariably, several people would ask if they could commission me to do a bear or two for them.  Pretty soon word got around our little town, and I had a little sideline business.  This was my favorite "stage" of putting these little guys together.  I referred to them as the hungry bears and would sit and feed them with stuffing as I watched TV with The Man each night!

Anyway, on to the "Birthday Girl."  

Do you think she loves her "Teddy?"

Littlest Miss closes her eyes to make a point.....

Ahhhh.....she loves her little bear.


Sorry for the blurriness, but Littlest Miss's alias is "Busy," and she had already posed long enough
for me to take pictures.  Dang, I have to remember to use the "Sports/Action" setting when I'm taking pictures of this little one!  Hope you enjoyed!
