A bit of a departure.

A while back a friend of mine who is into health and fitness asked if I would make him a special bear. I immediately had visions of what it would look like. I just had to squeeze it into my bear making schedule.

I completed the project a few weeks back and when I come across the photos in my files, they make me giggle. I thought perhaps you would enjoy seeing them too.

It was such a fun bear to work on. Every time my husband would pass by my desk while I was working on it, he would chuckle. Then I would chuckle and we imagined what our friend would think when he saw the bear.

This bear is twelve inches tall and has armature in his arms and legs. It certainly helps when he curls those heavy dumbbells!

My next few projects are under way as I write. As is always the case, too many ideas and too few hours in the day.

Have a marvelous weekend!

  1. What a fantastic chap. I hope he didn't loom over Sebastian too much. It's a difficult life being a little bear specially when some big one come to stay.

    1. Hi Jock,

      We really do appreciate your concern but it all turned out quite well. He took to Sebastian immediately and appointed himself his bodyguard. And of course, that went right to Sebastian's head and things were back to normal.

  2. Matilda: "Check out those muscles!"

    Me: "I know I saw! But he's NOT coming to live with us, so calm down."

    I walked away from that with a chuckle also.

    1. Hi Bonnie,

      Oh, Sebastian's bodyguard has an admirer. I'll be sure to pass along the info because sometimes those muscles can intimidate prospective friends. Tell Matilda we all said hello!

      Thanks so much!

  3. Hi Ginger, I had to laugh, talk about muscle on muscle. He looks as though he is a real body builder. I love him.

    1. Hi Kay,

      Aren't you sweet?! I'll let Teddy Nate that he has a couple of admirers and that is sure to make him smile today.

      All the best,

  4. LOVE him!! He made Claire and I chuckle, too (I'm sure Corinne and Matt would as well, but they are out and about!). Thanks for the giggle--love those biceps!

    1. Hi Cheryl,

      Yea! The little chap is very grateful you and Claire stopped by to check him out. I love those biceps too! Tell Claire every time I see something to do with ballet I think of her. Do you think she'll remember us crazy bear artists when she's a renown dancer? Hey to Matt and Corrine too!

      hugs,

  6. Oh, Mister Nate Bear - you are ripped. I feel faint just looking at your picture.

    I want to personal train with you. (Mom, don't write that I am drooling, I don't want that to get around.)

    Hugs,

    1. Hi there Prudence!

      If you play your cards right I could put in a good word for you with Mister Nate Bear. You might have to get that drool under control though. Just kidding dear. He'd love to meet you I'm sure. Have a nice Labor Day!

    1. Hi Jack and The Clan,

      Your comment makes me think that the next statement should be "My what big eyes you have Grandma." And the wolf says, "The better to see you with my dear." And so on. But I like yours better - "we are impressed!"

      Thanks guys!
