I came out of hospital a couple of weeks ago, and suddenly remembered that someone had asked me to make a bear for their daughter's birthday. So I have been struggling valiantly with this bear - not daring to go back and look at the email and see when the birthday was. I had a dreadful feeling I might have missed it.
Happily not however - it turns out the birthday is in September. So, meet Norman - a replica of Archimedes, who this customer bought for someone else, and then thought she would like another for her daughter.
I like this design: it is very simple, but friendly-looking, and I was very pleased to be asked to make another.
