A Girl & Her Bear....







This is the Teddy Bear I crocheted for Miss V for Easter...

The pattern is to the right...
Very difficult to follow...
Only 1 picture...of the finished product!
I had no idea where to sew the legs and arms on...to make her sit nicely!
Also...embroidering the features on AFTER the head is stuffed, was pretty tricky!













All of my hard work paid off...
She put her right into her doll stroller...
And off they went!!!
In a BLUR!
Gotta love her♥️ 











Hope you are all having a great day....

The plumber called....the water is on!!!! YAY.......YAY......YAY!
We are going out tomorrow...get some more yard work done...
Might stay over...fingers crossed!

Nice day today....sunny....still rather chilly wind though...

                                     ~~~~~~~~~~~~~

On the menu tonight...

        Fresh Cod filet...marinated in buttermilk...
           Baked til crispy after being...
             Rolled in Panko crumbs with Cajun spices...
               Bok Choy...fried potato patties with gr onion and red pepper...
                 Fresh Yellow and green beans...

          Enjoy the rest of your day...

                  Cheers!  :o)

  2. You did a great job on the bear, Linda. She is adorable. I'm working on a little wee one right now. My first and maybe my last. hahaha! I love it's little face in the third picture...so cute. I bet V slept with it that night. We had rain all day and it is a little too cold out there right now. Hope it warms up soon. Dinner sounds yummy. I love fish any way you cook it. Have a great evening. Hugs

    2. Well the subject obviously is a bit on the feminine side for us guys but I can see you've put a lot of work into it and the result is highly professional . . . . and if I was a kid I'd love to have it, probably without the pink ribbon. You are very talented.

  6. Oh, it's a bear! I thought it was a bunny. :) It is cute though and I'm sure Vivian will love it to pieces. It looks very similar to a bear my aunt made for our daughter when she was little. I hope you have a great day at the cottage. Rainy and cold here again. :(

  7. Just darling and I know Miss V will enjoy it for year to come. Wow, pages of instructions..guess I'll just keep knitting dish cloths. haha. That last picture tells it all...love she off in a blur with her new friend.
    Dinner at your house ALWAYS sounds delicious. I'm cleaning out the frig, so I don't have to throw out "green mold" things when we get back from our trip. Tonight salmon burgers (w/o the bun) and tossed salad (gotta use up all the veggies).
    Sending hugs and smiles

  12. Such a sweet sweeeeet teddy bear, Linda. And if I'm not mistaken, it's a blue one too! It is really adorable and you have every reason to be proud of the finished masterpiece. Does it have a name yet? Might I suggest "Little Blue"? No? ;)

    Fried potato patties with gr onion and red pepper.... yum.

  15. that is the most adorable little bear.
    before i even read that you had done it (I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN!!! ) ... LOL...
    i was thinking what an amazingly expressive face he has. that's hard to find in that kind of bear.
    and you know why yours does? it was made with total love. for a very special little person.
    that's why! that's the secret!
    xoxo♥
    YAYYY for cottage water!!! xoxo

  17. Hi! Your bear turned out really well . . . especially considering the directions were difficult. How on earth did you embroider the features AFTER the head was stuffed?

    How fun to see it all come together once your granddaughter took her for a ride! What better payment could there be?

    1. Hi Jenniffer.....
      I went thru the back of the head with a curved needle....the knot catches in the stuffing...out of sight....and then back out thru the back!

  20. Hi Linda,
    Marion has been crocheting Minion hats for my daughter's Relay for Life in June. When I showed her your bear, she went bonkers!!! She is now analyzing your images so she too can make a bear. She hasn't started yet and may get a bit distracted (after all, she is 93:) but, I have a feeling a bear is now in her future, lol...

    I'm just curious, did Miss V give it a name? I love when children name their toys. They sometimes come up with some doozies, lol...The bear looks adorable and that dinner sounds pretty darn good too. Thanks for sharing, Linda...
