First Bear of the Year
Purchasing fur for the bears is never an easy chore. Mohair is my favorite fur to work with, but it is hard to find the color, length, and density I need for a more real looking bear. The solution is to dye the fur.
My first bear of the year began in this beautiful soft long gold fabric, now a lovely perfect shade of brown.
It has been almost a month now since I have been away from Facebook. I am finding more time to work on the bears. Things get done so much earlier in the day, and hopefully that will leave me more time post updates here on the blog. Instead of sitting with my coffee checking Facebook to see what I missed while I slept, I come here and visit the blogs I follow. It is a slower more personal experience, and I remember how much I enjoyed it.
