One last project for 2013

One last project for the year.  Make teddy bears out of my dad's old sweater and wool trousers.
One bear was done before Christmas for daughter. Three will be delivered to nieces  this weekend weather permitting and I'll keep one. It will be like a hug from Grampa.  I used the buttons from his sweater to attach the arms and legs.
I'm using a pile of batting scraps for stuffing I may have a couple more feet of space in my closet.
Projects completed for the year: 
10 quilts
19 pairs of socks
3 sweaters
4 pair reading mitts and mittens
2 pair slippers
1 hat and scarf
61 books
  Wow I really got a lot done in 2013.  Hope the year ahead is equally as productive. 

Glory to God in the highest heaven, 
Who unto man His Son hath given; 
While angels sing with tender mirth, 
A glad new year to all the earth. --Martin Luther  
Happy New Year and Happy New Projects  --Ann--

Wow! You were busy in 2013! I couldn't accomplish that much in a lifetime! The bear is gorgeous - what a great way of using old clothes.

My socks are self patterning yarn by Opal, the colour is Sweet & Spicy.

I'm looking forward to seeing all the projects you'll work your way through in 2014. Happy New Year to you,

This is a lovely idea. Mum and I have been making sock monkeys out of Dad's socks - intersting!
