Bear paws require a fair amount of HST's good thing I'm not afraid of making them, as I got lots of practice making all those 1 1/2'' HST's.

Lorna's patterns are easy to follow with lots of great pictures. I'm not sure if you noticed but even with great instructions I still made a mistake I had one of the forehead pieces put in wrong. More practice with the seam ripper, not that I need any practice, and now my bear has his forehead all fixed as you can see in the next photo.

My flowers are not doing the best this year with all the hot and extremely dry weather we have been experiencing.
Usually this rose bush is covered with blooms, not so this year. This is a floribunda rose, I prefer hybrid teas. They are all suffering even though I keep them watered.
How are your gardens doing this year?
