I have been hanging on to show you this, for obvious reasons. My good friend had her birthday today. She has long admired my bears and gave me some lovely red silk which she loved but found hard to work with. So the logical thing was to make her a bear of her own and use her beautiful silk. I love her and even my husband said he rather liked her too. What do you think? Sadly, it was a bit dark the day I took her mug shots and they dont do her justice really.
