Volunteers will sew a red felt heart onto your bear's chest. If you did not buy a tag from them, volunteers will also fill out one for you, with your name or anyone's name you suggest on it, to be attached to your bear.
**These bears are meant to be personal, so each child will know the name of a person who loves them and is thinking of them!**
I'm heading up the cuff of the first of my Not More Socks in a bamboo blend. Still not moving on the Eliina Shawl.
Strategy: Give from your abundance as a way of expressing joy in the New Year.
