A Beary good story

Hi everyone,
I have a lovely story to tell you today. Yesterday 25th my family got together for lunch there were 6 of us and a very large carry bag. Carry Bag? ummmm.
We ordered our meals, sipped coffee and chatted away for a little time and then the mysterious carry bag was lifted onto the table by my brother-in-law Gary. Before he opened the bag he told us that when my mother died a few years ago my sister Debbie had kept my mother's artificial fur coats in a wardrobe in her spare room and hadn't been able to let go of them. Well, he was playing around on the internet and found a lady called Nicole in Perth Western Australia who makes Bears and he had contacted her to ask her to make 3 bears from the artificial fur. Guess what came out of the mystery bag? You guessed it 3 bears, all different and all with character and attitude. They have our names on the soles of their feet and the words "In love of Mom". Needless to say happy tears all around and big hugs for Gary from all of us. What a wonderful surprise.

White Bear for Debbie,Chocolate Bear for Samantha and
Milk Chocolate Bear for Carol
On the stitching front there is only a little more of Trees finished and I have been setting up for my cyberclass piece Moorish Splendor so no photos yet.

Do hope everyone in Australia had a lovely Anzac Day with family and friends. A final few words, spoken many times today by returned soldiers and service men and women all over Australia.

"We will remember them"

Bye for now, Carol
