Waiting for books
Some reflection

Not what I thought at all!

This is not the kind of embroidery I like normally but you know I did enjoy stitching Block two of this quilt.

Again, it took a lot longer than I thought it would even though the stitches used were basic.  But, with basic stitching you still have to take care. The eyes are just satin stitch but they are probably the most important part of each bear.  They are the part that show their character.  The other thing is the children just love these bears so what does it matter that I think they are basic?  This may turn out to be the block that the children enjoy the most.

As you say, "basic" doesn't mean "easy". And if the children love them, well, that's their reason for being, isn't it!

Yes, simple as that.  But I am always amazed when I learn something so basic.

The very basic short Straight Stitch is perfect for making these fluffy bears. Charming design, and yes, you are right, the eyes are the most important part of the design.
