(OK, actually I had meant to take these guys to the post office before Christmas… but the post office at Christmas should be avoided at all costs, so I procrastinated like a champ.)
It’s time for my bears to get all packed up and head up north, then to be sent out to all the corners of the world to meet up with their kids.
I’ve managed to finish 11 bears this year, all with leftover yarn and sweet little (grumpy) faces made out of felt. I’ve tied the little tags onto their wrists, and they’re packed up snug to fly to Mother Bear HQ in Minnesota.Once they get there, I’ll keep my eye out on their photo gallery to see if I can spot these little guys when they finally get where they’re going.Now I have to find another box and start making more bears for next year!
The day has come, and I’ll be honest, I have a little tear in my eye. It feels like I’ve been working on these bears forever, even if it is only a couple months. I’ve watched them grow and get faces and become all fluffy and adorable, and now it’s time to send them off on their own. It’s like a bear graduation.
I’ve ended up with seven bears, so not too shabby, if I say so myself.
I’ve got yellow ones,and brown ones,and one with a dress.A green one,and even a naked one! (Except for a strategically-placed scarf. Oh my!)They’re all nestled together in their box, and are ready to fly to Mother Bear Headquarters in Minnesota.Goodbye bears! I had fun making you! Good luck on your adventures!
Did you make any bears, too? Have you sent them off already?
