I took "Lester" the bear head, with me to JoAnn's to demo. It turns out that today is their open house, and so there were a lot of customers.
The first thing I managed to do is to sew Lester's ears onto the head. Then I noted that his nose is crooked. Oh well, I suppose it gives him "character". Then I started to crochet the body.
People started flocking around, and pretty soon, I had quite a little group there in the store. Before long, a few other teachers showed up, and the group around me dispersed.
Progress? Not a whole lot, but at least he looks like a bear now.
