He doesn't have a name yet, I made him from wool I felted from a jacket and his drum was contributed by my friend Barb. I used a pattern I just received from Sweet Meadows Farm, of course it doesn't resemble hers in the least but if you need a bear pattern, it's easy to make and maybe you can find some Kunin felt to use.
My next door neighbors have ruined my day, a For-Sale sign just went up in their yard. They have been good neighbors and they have a darling little girl, born since they moved here about three years or so. I have seen a lot of people come and go in my neighborhood, some I miss, some not so much. Lots of places are for sale and even a few are empty, it is the same everywhere. I guess we have to be patient.
