So most years I make myself a teddy bear around my birthday to add to my private collection. It's usually a bear that has something different about it, that way I can follow where my bear-making has changed. I started to make the bear from the antique mohair but changed my mind in the middle of it. This year I made one of my whimsical bears as I don't actually own one of my own bears in this style. I named this bear Suzie Q, not like the song, but just because it's a cute name:
I've been quite busy, like everybody else, enjoying the holiday season. So I think my bear making might be complete for this year. Although there is still the antique mohair! Hmmmm...I suppose I could squeeze one more in!
