From Belair to Yosemite

This wallhanging was commissioned through Etsy to be hung in a holiday house in Yosemite National Park, where there are indeed bears

The name comes about because we live right near Belair National Park, where we have koalas. It's not quite A-Z, but not far off!

I worked to size specifications to fit an exact spot in the house, and added a second bear on request. It's around 16 x 33in.

The eyes, hand stitched in black thread, don't show up so well on the darker brown fabric, and are almost impossible to see in the photos. Of course, it doesn't help that the few photos I took of the bears themselves are focused just to the side of the bears!

I added a hanging sleeve to this one, and hopefully it will soon be displayed in its new home.

It's lovely and I can just picture it at Yosemite. I'm sure the new owners will love it, Emma!

What a coup for you to have a quilt at Yosemite National Park! Now you'll have to start planning a trip to visit it!
