That sort of bear...

My 9 yr old daughter will often ask "can I do some sewing?".  She disappears for hours. Behind closed doors while listening to audio books, she sews. I am not allowed to peek or to help. A couple of days ago she emerged with this bear! It's so great, such personality, I begged to have it. I had to save him from ending up at the bottom of some toy box. So, he is mine and I love him.


  1. Oh wow! Your nine year old did such a good job on that bear! Must have taken after her mama huh?:)
    I would have done the same thing saving it from almost certain destruction.:)
    Have a great day!

  2. Oh, he is adorable! So glad you were able to talk her into giving it to you. ;)

  3. The miracles they weave (and sew and knit and crochet) while listening to a good story).

    Hey, I miss you. :)
