I finally got Lucinda done. I have done all the bears I have fur for and don’t want any more. It is too hard to work with. I will make more bears but they will be from fleece or knitted. I need Brer Bear who is a brown bear and I need Winnie The Poo but they will be later. For now I have Mother Bear (Lucinda), Father Bear ( Oscar) and baby Bear ( Scallewag) and tomorrow I will make the clothes for Lucinda and Oscar and start knitting Goldie Locks. Here is a full view of Lucinda.
And don’t ask Father Bear how two polar bears had a brown bear. In Fairy stories anything is possible and we have a happy family so leave it alone.
I also finished the Nordic sweater. It was too big for either of the dolls I had hope to put it on but it does fit my Patty Play Pal. If I had thought it would fit her I would have put on the extra four rows on the sleeves that I left off.
You can see the sleeves are a little short. Another half inch would be better but she looks good in the sweater anyways. Now she needs a dress that really fits and a bonnet. I am hoping I can comb her hair but I don’t want to pull it out so we will see what I can do with it. Shirley, do you remember this doll? It is one Shirley gave me. I had a doll collection some 11 years ago. I have well over 200 dolls. If I can find the picture of them I will add it to this post. Norman had built me a whole house for them. It was only one room but managed to fill it up. Have a great day.
