Bear Nekkid....

No - no nudie pics...but there are pics of a nekkid (that is how we say naked in the south...nekkid) bear.

That's right - while I have been trying to stave off Whooping Cough...or asthma, or whatever it is...I have been knittin' away..when not napping.

So here is where my second bear is....all the pieces are done...and I blocked - my first time blocking ANYTHING. But I had to since all the pieces were curling uncontrollably. I was surprised that acrylic curled.....

so here are parts...(dig my cool ironing board cover)


I hope to stitch her up tomorrow....

I started her overalls....this will end up being one of the legs....



And through all the coughs, inhalation treatments etc...there was my little own real-live teddy bear - Tigger - playing the role of a 'velcro puppy'. No matter what I am doing, she could be totally asleep in her bed, and if I get up from the couch to go get some juice - she is right behind me - nails clicking on the floor...she is sooo sweet!!

Pets can really be good at taking care of us! I can hardly wait to see the bear all put together! I hope you feel better soon!
