Bear Resting Comfortably After Apparent Playground Mishap

Dateline:  Quiltville.  "I'm lucky to be alive!" claims a local bear after nearly having the stuffing knocked out of him in an apparent playground accident.


Noted swinger, Mr. Bear, has a reputation for entertaining young women at his many wild and wooly tea parties. (Tea.  Right.)


The swinger bear claims he'll turn over a new leaf after bearly surviving a fall from a playground structure.  Doctors stated that a helmet, knee, and elbow pads could have prevented the worst of his injuries. 

Mr. Bear received stitches and several spoonfuls of sugar to help the medicine go down.


The Mayor of Quiltville has pledged an awareness campaign to avoid future mayhem.

I just love this redwork - and your rendition of posible cause of accident, etc... was just wonderful.

Haha! I don't know how I missed this post....this is so funny! Thanks for the chuckles - this was a hoot! (Perhaps a ladies magazine will soon interview the swinger bear, much to the delight of its readers. Swoon!)

Poor bear. He really should quit swinging so much.

Very cute! You really ought to add your "article" to the back of the finished quilt as part of the label.
