I noticed the other lady was carrying a large carry bag and wondered what was in it?? After awhile she opened the bag with the words "you make bears don't you??" . . . I opened my mouth to explain that I no longer make bears, havent done one for years and no longer enjoy making them . . . and suddenly heard myself saying "oh yes thats fine ! ! ! " - it was one of those moments when you suddenly think "who on earth said that ???" when you realise it was actually you who said it!!!! and so I was
Midge came together fairly well but was such a hairy fur to sew and in the end I think he should've been called Midget as he is only 7 inches tall & required hours of picking fur out of seams/brushing/trimming etc (someone in the house said he looks like a hedgehog!!)
Phoebe was quite a bit more work but a lovely mohair fur to work with. I decided to adorn her with an old doiley for her collar and tie some lace from my vintage stash as a headband for her - here she is (above) coming together slowly . . .
So today was the day I told myself she had to be finished as I have other orders I need to be getting onto plus some more doiley doll bodies cut out waiting to be stuffed and dressed . . .
(a task I really enjoy doing)
Here is the finished Phoebe ready to go to her new home . . .
Hope that you like her . . .
Hope that the lady likes her also . . .
Have a lovely weekend out there folks - daylight saving ends here in New Zealand this Saturday night so we shall have lighter mornings and much darker evenings here . . . winter is not far away :-(
cheerio for now,
