Now this is when everything comes full circle, and oh what a moment it is. The teddy bear this little girl is holding...is one that I made! - (shown in previous post below). From my knitting needles, and from my lap... into the hands and life of this girl...on the other side of the planet, in Namibia. Wow. I am still integrating the magnitude of this, and it's with indescribable gratitude and awareness of my blessings that I give thanks... that I am - along with countless others - a blessing to others. I believe we receive blessings so we can be a blessing, whatever shape that takes. No blessing is to small or too large!
So now, I continue with my 2012 teddy bear-making project, which I've named: "Mother Bear Love 2012". Currently I'm completing my 3rd knitted bear, and soon will create my first crocheted bears! I'll post as often as I can. Usually I knit-up a batch then do finishing touches on that batch, which includes: sewing, stuffing, shaping, embroidering the face, etc.
My goal for 2012 is 11 bears, so... three down, eight to go! Seeing the above photo and knowing the impact this Project has, and being connected with other Mother Bear Project bear-makers...makes me want to create that much more!
