Goldie Locks

Time got away from me again.  I got another one of the pattern books I ordered and this one is just what I wanted.  Photo on 4-9-16 at 11.47 AM

 

There really is an animal for each letter so almost all I could want is here or close enough for me to make it.  Like the mouse isn’t there but the vole is and they look enough alike.  And the size is right and easy directions.  So this is perfect.  Then I went to “Fabric and Sewing” site and got fleece in all the colors I needed.  I have some fleece here to get started with so I don’t have to wait for that but I do have to finish the one I had started.  I got the three bears but needed Goldie Locks and I am using Emily in my book from Australia. Photo on 4-9-16 at 11.44 AM

 

I have the pieces all done except one arm which I still have four rows to do, then I will start stuffing her and putting her together.  The under pants shoes and socks are all knitted right into the body. Photo on 4-9-16 at 11.44 AM #3

This is the body.  It even has a belly button.  Can you make it out? Photo on 4-9-16 at 11.44 AM #2

You see the face is all knitted in too and the hair all has to be tied or knotted in..  That will take some time.  Then I’ll make her dress and petticoat and then I can start on some of the other animals.  I think I will do “Giraffes Can’t Dance”  That is the only modern book I got but it was such a cute story I could not resist it.  I need lots of animals for that book.  Now that I have a good pattern for a frog I can’t wait to do “Froggie goes a Courting” That is an old Tex Ritter song that my kids always loved.

I got my bread made first thing this morning so now I can work on my dolls.  Must run.  Have a great day.

About Carol (Ouma) Petts

I am a retired teacher. I have taught all levels from kindergarten through college and have been retired now for over 20 years. The last ten years we have lived on a farm and lived off the land, growing our own food and canning for our extended family. Now we have sold the farm and are moving to Florida to truly retire. I guess I have always had a short attention span as this is our 11th move. We have moved from a small farm in New Hampshire, to more city type living, small business adventures, focusing more on traveling, Florida living, Georgia, and Tennessee farming and now back to Florida. My blog is a way to keep my children up to date on what I am doing and letting them know I am still alive and well. My children are spread across the country from New England to Florida, Nova Scotia to New Mexico and CA and several places between, They let me know what they are up to by commenting on my blog but they are so busy with their own lives most times I have to assume " no news is good news". Now I are starting on a new adventure so will try to give daily updates until we get settled into a routine. Then I know even if I am getting older and should settle down I will start looking for some new and exciting adventure to start. Welcome aboard. Norman died Oct 30, 2017 so I am continuing the journey alone with the aid of my children, grand children and great grand children. At present I am living with my daughter and we are 7 in one house and cover four generations. We range in age from 7 to 85 and are finding common ground, we are living proof that multi generations can live and function in a three bedroom house if they really want to. Soon my grandson will have his house built next door so we all will have a room of their own except for the seven year old twins who by choice will share a room.
