Jean, I'm so sorry to hear about your problems.  It must be very frustrating for you as I know you do so much.  We do have quite a lot of wool already otherwise I would say yes please because I am working on various toy patterns at the moment.  If no-one else wants it, I will happily take it off your hands but please consider me a back-stop and give priority to others.

Sorry to hear about you issues Jean, wish you all the best.

I'm sure someone who can crochet or knit (I'm not much cop as I prefer sewing!) will soon make contact and take up your kind offer.

Oh, I love the Rainbow Babies. I've made two but I want to make the whole set. I also think I'll be making one for a colleague's baby who's due on Boxing Day - in red and green for Christmas.

Many thanks Sharon, these seem reasonably easy although possibly need a bit of patience! Have added it to my pattern collection (rapidly growing!) and will report back when I've done one :)

Hi Linda,

Sorry you've had so little interest in the meet-up in Oxford. I was planning to be there but unfortunately the New Year is unlikely to be convenient for me as I start a new job in the Midlands in less than a month.

Teddies - I think I started with a "teddies for tragedies" teddy. I think it might be in the pattern book. The pattern is quite simple for beginners to soft toys. The Izzy dolls are very cute and have minimal shaping. You can play around with colours and textured yarn which may not be so good for squares. It's fun to give them accessories too like scarves and belts. And to give them hairstyles! I try to make each one unique.

Jumpers - Kathy's Cozy jumper is a good pattern to start with. It's basically either two T shapes sewn together or 4 rectangles (front, back and one folded into a tube for each sleeve). Again, have fun with the colours and the textures.

Above all, enjoy!

Thanks Susan, sorry we cross-posted x Your teddies sound lovely, and having a bit of a routine might suit me too, I think. So far, changing colours has kept me going, but there are only so many that are on offer.......
Comment by Linda M on September 12, 2014 at 10:07pm
Thanks Elaine, I think I'll give the Izzy dolls a try ...they're also a good way of using up small quantities of colours, aren't they?

Shirley...I'm sorry, thought I had contacted everyone who lived within hailing distance of Oxford. Good to hear from you and I'll definitely put your name on the list! Thanks :)

Thanks Tom and Joan for your ideas too....I'm not going to be short of activity, am I? X
