Don't know why it had taken me so long to finish this block. I think it was because I changed it more than I usually do, (had to look for more beads and threads) and since I had changed the previously block also, had to bring the beads into this one and change some thread colors and wool. Also didn't embellish the same, added more here, less there. You can see the difference from Sue's printed picture below.
Yes, he's back, never had a bear in the middle of August, look at those eyes. He has sweet eyes. Off he went and outside I went to sew.
