Default My first attempt at making a stuffed animal turned out great!

OK, I'm trying this again. After a year off sewing due to a bad flare-up of my Rheumatoid Arthritis, I'd forgotten how to post photos. Thanks for your advice.
anyway.....

I made this soft fleece "Greyson" Bear for my grandson's first birthday. I learned about safety eyes & nose and though I don't know how to embroider, my handstitching a small smile looks cute.

Greyson loves it, both at the party, and according to my daughter, at home.

...I just saw this and wonder where my other uploaded photos are. Are only 2 allowed?


I also made the quilt wallhanging over my bed.

The blond Granny is me.

My son-n-law didn't get it at first that I actually made it, then was amazed. Flattering and very satisfactory!

We adopted our beautiful daughter from Korea when she was 5months old. Her baby's face is identical to hers, in fact when I put same age photos of the 2 of them together, people think it's the same baby with different hairstyles (she had little girl straight across bangs even as a baby). My grandson is just as happy and easy going as she was too. I'm so blessed.
