I've been working on polar bears and brown bears. Despite many trips to Yosemite and having a cabin in the Sierra Nevada, I still haven't seen a bear in the wild. I've seen fresh bear scat, clawed tree stumps and bear damaged bins near campsites but no actual bears. Every time I sit on my window seat in the mountains with a cup of tea, I think how cool it would be to see one amble past! Our bears are a much darker brown than these brown bears but I didn't think the stitching would show up so well on a darker color.
You can see this pincushion in my Etsy Shop. In addition to sewing, I am trying to get organized for Christmas! There is always so much to do isn't there? Even though I know it's coming, Christmas always seems to creep up on me!
