Stitching bears!

Linda and I have a new Monday SAL, The Bear and the Bees by The Prairie Schooler. We started this last February 2012 and haven't touched it again until now.  I stitched the bees last year and now I'm starting on the bear.
The Bear and the Bees update #1
I've also been stitching on some other WIPs with bears.  I started Bear Hug in 1988, when I bought the kit at a Creative Circle home party.  I'm going to donate this to World of Charity Stitching and they can sew it onto a pillow or tote bag.  It's a great charity to stitch for, since you don't have to wait for a quilt theme to stitch something.  They make all kinds of things with cross stitch designs.  I finished stitching the bears and now all that is left is the border.  It will be great to get this old one finished!
Bear Hug update #2
Picnic Area by The Prairie Schooler was started in the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge this year.  I stitched two more letters and started stitching a bear. There will be bears on both sides, and a fox chasing a rabbit on the bottom.
Picnic Area update #1
Bear in the Janlynn Wildlife Series was another start in the UCJC this year.  He got the rest of his nose done but still only has one eye!  I have other kits from this series that I will stitch some day.
Bear update #1
This was fun to have a "bear" theme on my blog post today.  I have more ideas for future blog post themes by grouping some of my WIPs together.  Happy Stitching, everyone!

Love the bear theme. And of course I've already told you how much I love the bear from Janlynn. He is awesome. Uh-Oh you say it's a series. I'm sure I'm going to be going to search it out and see what else is in the series. If all of them are this cute I think I'm in trouble!!!

Love your bear post. Can't wait till we add Janlynn bear as a weekly SAL. Picnic Area is looking good. Really like the green fabric. Bear and Bees should be a quick one for us.
