- Why Choose Sharp?
Nov. 28, 2009
After I delivered Phillip Bear to the Sharp Hospice volunteer office, I chose the garment for my next bear. I told them I probably couldn't do one in the two week time period they ask for, so they gave me one from farther down the list.
This new garment is a jacket that belonged to Leonor, who passed away under hospice care. The bear I am making is the 10th bear for her family, the limit we will do for a family whose loved one was in Sharp Hospice.
Leonor must have always smelled very good. This jacket carries her perfumed scent, one I recognize as familiar but cannot name. I believe this was something she probably wore for special occasions with pale pink pants and pretty earrings. The jacket is well made and partially lined.
I ironed on the interfacing, laid out all the pieces and got them cut out yesterday. Everything went smoothly this time and I felt good about
I will probably finish the assembly of the bear tomorrow and maybe even stuff it during the Charger game. Leonor was from San Diego, so I'm sure she was a Charger fan, too! Follow more of Laurie's Memory Bear journey.
