Yesterday Patty came for dinner and we had a great visit. I always love to talk with her. She is so busy we don’t get together too often but more often than most mothers get.
I have finished Goldie Locks and the three bears.
I am not putting clothes on baby bear. I did tighten his joints so now his arm will stay up and wave to you. I did the same for the two white bears also but their arms still hang down, they just don’t flop any more. So they are all ready for the kids to hold while I read the story to them.
Here is Goldie Locks. I didn’t put on a lot of hair but enough for a nice pony tail. I have cut out her petticoat and dress so all I have to do is sew it up and she will be done also.
I spent most of the morning looking for a pattern to make a kangaroo and finally found one to crochet. So I ordered that on ebay. They say it will be here tomorrow. I also found a book called “Knit your own Zoo” and I ordered that from Amazon. I am not sure there is a kangaroo in that but they implied there was. We will see. That book should be here today along with my doll eyes and animal noses. I am knitting a small brown bear now. I got two skeins at ACMoor and this is working up into a nice soft animal. I will wait for the eyes and nose to come before putting it together. The real eyes will be so much nicer than the buttons.
Beautiful weather here right now and that makes me lazy. I guess it is any excuse not to work too hard in Florida. Have a great day.
