Challenges
Last year Nancy Shinder brought her daughter and two of her young grandson’s to my home to see the different kinds of crafts that I do.  They were fascinated with my teddy bears.

Nancy told me recently that these two grandsons now age 7 and 9 wanted to come back to the home of the “nice lady” and they wanted to make their own teddy bears.

So – I asked Nancy if she would like to make her own teddy bear so she could assist me when I taught her daughter and her grandsons.   These pictures show Nancy creating her cute bear she named “Bearnard”.
