It's been a long time since I posted a bear and it feels good to be back in production, however limited it is.  My broken arm and shoulder are fine but the stubborn tendonitis in my left upper arm and bursitis in my left shoulder, continue to plague me. :o(  I'm trying to go slow, so i won't aggravate it any more and I'm using my Tens machine on it to help with pain, so I will have to see how things go.

Anyway, I'd like to introduce, McNamara, a centre seam bear.  He is 6 3/4 inches tall, fully disc-jointed and is made from hand-dyed, red, semi-distressed German mohair, that has been gently aged and distressed.  McNamara is firmly stuffed with excelsior and gently weighted with steel shot.  He has black German glass eyes, a sparse, waxed nose and distressed, wool felt paw pads (with bits of excelsior showing through).  Please note McNamara is a lovely red, not the orangy red he appears to be here.  He was very hard to photograph.

McNamara wears a wool felt clown hat, decorated with tiny vintage bells and the hat is aged to look old.   His collar is a wired ribbon, decorated with music notes and his little metal badge is decorated with tiny sheet music, and covered with resin.  McNamara's shipping is $15.00 by UPS to locations in continental North America and $15.00 to Europe.  If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email me at:   I will be away until Thursday afternoon, August 15th, with no internet access, and will respond to any enquiries at that time.  Thanks for peeking!
