Mother (Bear Project) Lode!

The photos from my friend’s recent bear distribution trip to Africa have been uploaded– there are nearly 3,000 bear photos to look through!  I found 12 of my own bears among them!  Whewwwwww, some of these photos will really make me think twice before complaining about something I want or “need….”

I’m having trouble with my photos today, so I can’t show you exactly what I had in mind for this post.  I will, however, share with you a gratuitous sunset photo of San Francisco, because it was just so beautiful this evening:

For honesty’s sake, I will tell you that isn’t real fog.  It’s made by a fog machine.  But it’s still pretty cool, right?

I would also like to share with you this bear that I put the finishing touches on this evening.   I’m naming my bears in alphabetical order, and I’m on Q with this Slytherin-themed bear.  Between the names Querida (dear one in Spanish) and Queenie (my daughter’s idea), which do you prefer?  I’m pretty sure that there weren’t any Q-named wizards mentioned in Slytherin House….

Next week I’m mailing off 5 bears to the Mother Bear Project (http://www.motherbearproject.org/) with a friend, and we can also hand deliver 3 to Stitches West, so I’m right on target for that.  The two of us are doing great on our 2014 goals of knitting 14 bears (each).  Yay!!!
