This furry chap is Onxby VI. You may have seen yesterdays layout about the Onxby dynasty? My Grandfather had a bear with a growler. They called him Honky as that was the noise he made. As Gramps learnt to talk he pronounced it Onxby - it stuck. My Mum has an Onxby, as did my uncle. I have one, as does one of my cousins. My Gramps is no longer with us but I have a letter from him saying to ensure each generation has at least one Onxby. It is my nephews first birthday next week, and Onxby VI will be moving in with him. He was eager to be wrapped up as you can see top corner! I've embroidered his foot and told the story. I think Gramps would be happy that the fourth generation now has an Onxby.
Linking up for my weekly dose of Friday Smiles and at Planet Penny (who supplies the cotton yarn for the blanket we used for the photo shoot!)
