I am busy with so many projects at the moment but at least one was completed this weekend. It's definitely not an easy to task to make a black bear and making an Alpaca black bear is a nightmare. This boy is 45 cm and very cuddly. Although he was very willing to do the photo shoot and sat patiently whilst I took picture upon picture, he is unfortunately not photogenic at all. He's a gorgeous boy in the fur and I'm going to miss him when he goes to live with my friend.

Gorgeus Bear - black is one of the colours which difficult in stitching as well Photo to take, may be outside light could help a bit.

Dear Pat
Thank you so much for your kind comments on my blog. I really understand how you must feel with your children so far away. The poor Australians have had a hard time of it this past few months, now with the fires in and around Perth.
When a solder is killed in Afghanistan all outside communication is shut down until family have been informed. My heart breaks every time one of them dies. The latest casualty leaves a wife due to give birth their first child later this month.
Love your black bear, hard colour to work with and photograph but he looks wonderful.
have a good week

From the Black Bear ... "thank you, ladies, for all your wonderful compliments."
(he's quite a handful - he knows he's cute - lol)

Actually, Pat, his features are quiet distinguishable, even on the photo. I avoid very dark browns and blacks, for the most part ... so I admire your fortitude! Glad the creative drive is visiting you again. Love you and your bears! Vicki
