Looking forward to seeing your larger teddy. Enjoy your trip to the caravan. Autumn has arrived, the nights are drawing in but at least we've still had some sunshine. I came home from MIL's on Thursday, I'm going back to stay with her tomorrow for another 5 days, it's a bit of a trek between Wiltshire and Ashby!! :))
Sparking a child's imagination can actually change their lives Kathy, so those hand teddy gloves are likely to make a wonderful difference to the children. It has inspired me to think about sewing some simple glove puppets this year!
Yes, a knitting dolly...I haven't heard that term in years...in Canada it's a knitting spool I think, I like knitting dolly better. I used one a lot as a child but could never figure out what to do with the long cord...now I know! Teddy bear scarves!
I think you're right Kathy, most kids don't keep their toys long. I had my teddy bear until I was in my thirties I think. Ditto Larry Lamb until I was in my twenties...did they make them better back then or is it just that kids get bored easier and faster nowadays? I wonder. Regardless, I love the teddy patterns and plan to give one a go very shortly. I too have been studying "how to do faces" diagrams and videos for teddies and dollies. I will get it right first time yet! At the moment it's more like "Nope, that'll scare the child half to death...redo it!" LOL
