Teddy Bears Picnic

IMGP2923

Bit late to the picnic today, spent too long gossiping with Teresa this morning over coffee! Anyway, I told Teresa I would join today with the bear I entered into last years Ipswich show in the handmade bear section. Considering Posie here was the only bear not made from traditional materials (and there were quite a few bears entered!), I thought 3rd place was very respectable indeed! She is made using a very vintage 1930's flowergarden quilt piece and vintage chenille. I have tried to sell her a couple of times but then always change my mind, she really is lovely.

So here is Posie. Sorry for the terrible photo, it is blowing a gale here today and she was a little worried her little parasol from Paris was going to blow away! Those French biscuits aren't going to last long either, I hear those other bears can be a little hungry sometimes!

Thank you so much for coming on the picnic. Posie is very unusual and very beautiful. Congratulations on her prize at the Ipswich show. I've never seen anything like the little French parasol, it's exquisite.
