Hideko's Bear

 Hello All,

This is the secret project I was working on all summer and couldn't post about


 I met Hideko at the 2010 Retreat , She ended up loosing that years bear. She lives near Sendai and was affected by the earthquake and tsunami.

 I got in contact with the ladies that attended that retreat and asked them to contribute something small to make a bear of Hideko's own.
This is the finished result

She received it today and seems very happy with it

Well off to another project!!

Later,
Lauri
