WIP 08/01/17 Woodland Themed Afghan – Bear Applique

Hi friends! I am getting so close to finishing this project! I can’t wait. My ‘I want to make this next’ list has been growing like crazy, ugh. I can’t bring myself to have more than 1 WIP at a time…. if I did I would never finish any of them!

It’s been a hard time for me lately. I haven’t been able to concentrate…. so many things on my mind. It made trying to create this next applique a real bear! Many, many hours spent on something I should’ve been able to do in two. But I did it. And I love it.
