Teddy Bears Picnic
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!
