Another Day In The Life Of Mr Bear

A Day In The Life of Mr Bear has become one of our best loved patterns.  This quilt tells the story of a very special little girl, and how she spends a special day with her best friend Mr Bear.

In an earlier post I shared the real story of Mr. Bear, and how his story came to life in the heart of my sweet granddaughter, Hailey.  Her Uncle Scott surprised her with this huge stuffed bear for Christmas when she was 3 years old.  Mr Bear ended up doing everything that Hailey did - yes, every day.
Here is a picture of Hailey the day Mr Bear "walked" into her life.  She was instantly in love!!

Today, Hailey is married and has a precious 4 month old son of her own.
Last week, I received a text from little Miss Hailey with the sweetest pictures
of Mr. Bear with Baby Jude.  It looks like another love connection to me!
I couldn't wait to share these with you.

It's pretty obvious that Mr. Bear has seen better days, but I guess that's ok
if your fur is all worn from excessive hugs and kisses. What a blessed bear he is.
Now Mr. Bear has a whole new generation of love coming his way.
Oh, the adventures ahead for Mr. Bear and Baby Jude!!

Thanks for sharing in the joy of this great-grandmother.
