WIP "Sister Bears"

Custom order for Carol and Joe

I have not been able to work on these teddies for the last few days because they should have been finished by now. Unfortunately I spent all this past week in different doctor's offices with either my mother or my daughter and by the time I got home I was just too exhausted or I had household chores to do. I'm hoping that this weekend I will get more bear-making time because I finished the bodies last week and got the heads started. Now is the most important part: completing the heads.  I'm making them at the same time so I can keep these two sister bears very similar. So far, so good.
