Very near finished... just procrastinating on the back-stitch.
There is a slight 'in-house' joke with this piece; her sons call her a duck. And as you will see there is one featured in the work (though I am more implying she is the bear).
She loves ducks and has quite a few statues of them, but not appreciative of being called one.
Thus I though 'her' reading with/to a duck was appropriate.
This will be part of a birthday/Christmas gift with one piece of a set of something *cough* Disney
Swarovski Crystal Lion King set *cough*. This set will have me set up
present wise for the next 3yrs. I feel like I am cheating but they were
have several other in the Popcorn Bear series that I will probably try
and do one a year to go with the crystal. I also have one for myself,
and another friend (she loves bear and wanted one after seeing my
progress on FB).
