I know exactly how moved you must have been to receive your bear. My daughter in Scotland asked me to send her a bear kit to try and all I had at the time was a mini bear! Well my birthday was at the beginning of May and she sent me her mini bear and the little thing was perfectly made. There was no sculpting of the face but he is lovely. I will treasure him above every other bear in my hug because he was made with such love and dedication, specially for me.
