Bears and angels

I received this large box from my friend Marian of http://gumboandgrits.blogspot.com
Inside was a handmade bear that is too cute for words. This bear measures 22 inches long and since she is a lady, I won't tell you her waist size, but let's just say she is fluffy! Her body is made of pink fabric with wonderful "fruits of the spirit" wording on it. Her vest is of fabric with the cutest pink ribbons. And that hat! It is purple with pink ribbons and a pink bow on it. She is Jo's Bear, named after a fellow stitcher who lost her battle with cancer.
Marian also stitched up LK's Peace, Love and a Cure and made it into a hanging pillow. The stitching is fabulous and the border is the same fabric that Jo's Bear's vest is made of.
Without further ado, here is Jo's bear and the pillow:

But wait! That is not all she sent! She sent these 5 ornaments also:


WOW! Amazing! The tree is going to look glorious.
I am going to raffle off Jo's Bear and the Peace,Love & a Cure hanging pillow. Drawing will be AUGUST 3rd. Here is how you can enter:
