Big bear for Beth bear

Big bear

Grrrrrr this is big bear, isn’t he fab. He is a pattern from the tartan kiwi he is a massive 30 inches square and it was great to be able to use some big print fabrics.  I was a bit nervous about the size of this guy as I’m just learning paper piecing but this is a very forgiving pattern which was a relief.  My little sister is still back in Scotland and now has a gorgeous little daughter called Beth who will be two in March and they call her Bethy Bear so when I seen this pattern I knew I needed to make one for her.  It was a really fun pattern to make and I think a small boarder in the white background and he will be done.

I have just had a fab night out at the Peter Lehmann Noodle Market with the family it’s great to enjoy dinner outside in a stress free way with the littlies, Brendyn dropped me of with the kids and went back out for a beer so I’m going to spend the rest of the evening reading my Patchwork City book, there is a quilt along starting in February and I’m going to play along, can’t wait to get started.  Have a great weekend.
