Final Finish of 2012

This one was a race to the finish.  And I'm a bit ashamed of how long it actually was in the making!

As the clock chimed 11:53 pm on December 31, 2012, I put the final stitch in the binding.  It was a miraculous finish right before the New Year and one I wasn't sure was going to happen.

The pattern is by the Wooden Bear and I've made a couple others like it - including two Turkeys, a Santa, and an Uncle Sam.  My mother has been the recipient of one of each, and put in a request last Christmastime for a few more so she'd have one for each season.  They've become a traditional Mother's Day gift, but not always on Mother's Day.  In fact, this one was over six months late!  But it made it up to mom just as Santa was ready to come down and the need for a winter themed one went up!
