I am very pleased to introduce Roger whom I completed today. The poor little bear sat for two weeks without being sewn up because of my problem right hand. Everytime I walked past him his eyes beseeched me to "finish the job"! Today was the day - my hand felt slightly better and I did it. Roger is a 12" bear with the kindest face. It's a pity his photograph does not show this clearly. And he is waiting for Georgia to take him back Down Under in December.
The backdrop Iused for the photograph is lace tablecloth for an 8 seater table, given to my mother, by her mother, for her 21st birthday. Sadly my mother is no longer with us but she would have been 88 next month. This tablecloth is beautiful and in very good condition and can still be used by my granddaughter when she has a home of her own.
I hope you all had a fabulous weekend.

Hello Pat!
Roger is a real charmer. He has a very sweet face, indeed.
Lovely tablecloth, and its history.

Thank you for visiting and thank you all for your comments regarding my hand. It really is terrifying to not be able to do the things you want to and have to.

Some guys don't mind posing on lace; Roger is one of those rare ones. He's great and thanks for the story on the tablecloth. I love old handed down items. Many hugs from Vicki
