swap pattern bear

We are still cold ... no new snow, but on Monday we had about 6 inches total. Area schools were canceled both Monday and Tuesday. My teacher daughter's school district has already canceled school for tomorrow... the grandkids are in a different district, so she's waiting to hear about them.
So I hunkered down and started work on another bear. I belong to a yahoo bear group that decided to swap patterns at Christmas time. I chose the pattern for this little guy and enlarged it! Enlarged it by more than 2 times... I DON'T make tiny bears ( my arthritis , you know!) . I found some dense baby blue and olive-y green short mohair in the well-known/oft mentioned stash and went to work. This little just under 6" bear was the result! He has a little facial enhancement and worry-eyebrows ( will I be liked?).
