For the bear lover, this is a "must have"! This amazing needlework was completed many years ago and then stored away until recently. It is time to let the bears out!! Expertly done on a dark beige colored background, the maker outlined each bear with threads, hand stitched all accent points and then painted the remainder of each bear's features and clothing. Meet the family: Papa bear is dressed in his "time for dinner best vest and coat" including a kerchief in pocket; Momma bear is wearing her Sunday red dress with blue apron so as not to soil the dress making dinner; there is teen big sister bear who is telling the smaller bears to go wash their paws for dinner; then little boy bear who is hiding his paws in the pockets of his jeans that are kept in place with suspenders and lastly, little baby bear who insists on bringing her toy bear along to the table cause it don't eat much! So there you have The Whole Bear Family...done on 21" x 20" cloth and ready to frame...there is a dark mark above Momma bear's head but can be hidden when framed. Otherwise a rare find in wonderful condition!! Please Note; maker started the text with pink thread but went to red for the wording...either ran out of the pink or saw that the pink didn't show up very well. Where have you ever seen another??
