ABC Embroidered Quilt Block – Bear

I intended to post this bear last night, but just as I was finishing up the last of the fur, I caught my cat, Jack, urinating on a pile of clothes in the laundry room. Because this is a bad habit he has acquired lately, I grabbed him to toss him outside and he decided to attack me. Although we all know he’s a biter and he has a long history of biting people when he’s annoyed at them, this was way over the top. I have 13 bite and claw punctures on my right hand and left arm, and when I woke up this morning my right hand was swollen, painful, probably infected and I CAN’T SEW! Now I get to go to the doctor and Jack gets to become an outside cat until I get over being mad.

Back to the bear….the fur was a little tedious. I’m not sure I’m getting any better at back stitch, but I am certainly getting a lot of practice. I purchased some wonderful variegated and multi-color Anchor floss from the UK and am excited to try it out.
