Here's my Bear for the Teddy Talk Summer Bear Swap.
He was sent ages ago, but my partner has been very ill and had to have a knee operation, so everything has been a little delayed. She has just let me know that he has arrived so I will now share him with you.
I went for a little puppy in colours that remind me of summer, and ice-cream for some reason. I went a bit mad on the insets. He has white inset muzzle, paws, toes and the tips of the back of his ears. I like to think of him as a rather pretty scruffy street dog.
It reminds me of just how far my skills have progressed in such a little time - and my noses are getting better with every bear.
Clare loves him, so that is what matters most.
So a little piece of summer for you all - even if it feels like summer is now well and truly over.
