Jenny Bear....

I've been hopping on the bear band wagon, but really its because I do love these beautiful beings.

 The bond was well and truly sealed when I read a book over a decade ago , where astronomy was morphed with Native American Wisdom...instead of being an uptight control freak, perfectionista Virgo I was a nurturing, loving brown bear. Hear me roar.

This piece went through a few lives before it got here. I've been experimenting with hand painting/stamping my own fabric and incorporating it into my stitched pieces. However the colour choices didn't work,so the whole bear fabric got painted over! (and a few triangles felt rude not to join the triangle bandwagon too) I prefer minus the blue..but it needed enlarged to fit a 5" x 5" block. 

So there you have it...
