Rare Bear and Giveaway Winner

This cute unstuffed bear was my garment practice! And also for a good cause:
Sheryl, who I will be getting to know at Houston this fall writes:
Last year I became involved in the Rare Bear movement. This is an army started by Dr. Christina Waters and her mother, who is a quilter! Dr. Waters does research in rare childhood diseases. There are lots of statistics but the short end is: her mother started making bears out of her cotton quilt leftovers to gift to these children who are suffering from these rare diseases , and the "army" is those of us who are volunteering to make these bears.
Mine isn't very creative, but think it will be loved regardless.
Here's my Instagram feed for the past 2 weeks!

It sounds like a few of you have been booted off of lists.... I'm in good company then. LOL

Without further ado Barbara Woods, you are the winner of the magazine. Please send me your mailing address and I'll get it into the mail.

Let's have an awesome weekend!

  5. Your bear is so cute! I made one for my oldest daughter when she was six, but it turned out so ugly that all in the family called him "the monster". Anyway, my daughter loved him until we moved in another town and he got lost. When she was eighteen I made another bear for present at her birthday, this time I called him "the monster #2: the revenge" . He was very beautiful, and everyone in the family agree. She is now 38 years old, and she still love him .
    Congrats to Barbara!

  7. Cute bear. A nice effort to give comfort to kids undergoing tough times with rare diseases. I know how hard it was to watch my grandson go through testing and treatments when he didn't understand what was happening, or why. Something to cuddle is a good idea.
