I’ve got a winter bug, which struck me at work today, but I have company in my misery.
Yesterday my old manager dropped by my desk and a small bear climbed out. Tedster belongs to his youngest, and he has been so loved and so stuffed with secrets that he’s run out of lullabies, and has a rather sore back:
He has been sent to me to replace his Brahm’s lullaby music box and sew up his back again, which will be a rather less messy resurrection that my last patient!
He sat down and had a long chat with Beatrix about his upcoming surgery, and then sent a note to Isabella about how well he had settled in:
I managed to get all my hexies cut for the Table Runner and Wall Hanging swap, doesn’t this look like a pathetic wee pile?
But I know it’s enough because I pinned it all out on the backing in paper, and numbered them all so I could use extra templates to make them up (yup, I’m that much of a geek!)
And speaking of geeks, you may remember I was due to be on Sew Happy Geek today, but I think the drugs have gone to Jenna’s head a little, and she’s had a date mixup! Still, if you head over there today, you can see how my friend Allegory has made a pumpkin panel :o)
I'm impressed with your skills, proper liposuction and body-jobs and everything 😉 I'm pretty sure that yellowy orange stuff was in a few of my bears, nasty. Well done you tho!
You're NOT a geek. Okay, now get rid of that flu bug and feel better.
You have surgery and you need to be at your beary best for your patient. (o:
OK Dr.Katy, sniffles in the nose are not good. Drink plenty of hot lemon drink laced with non other than honey.
Now back to the poor bear with a sore back. I know you will be well enough to operate soon. Ouch it looks sore. Don't forget to sterilize all your needles for this operation.
Oh I love that you can bring bears back to full health – be sure to concentrate on your own too!
Like the look of the hexie project…..
My son`s favourite teddy, Toffee, has quite a wonky neck through near strangulation each night when Zaki cuddles him in bed. Is there anything you can do or recommend? Extra stuffing perhaps? Kind of the opposite of liposuction. Cute photos BYW,
That's so nice that your co-workers know that you're a teddy doctor! I love your big hexie mockup. 😀
I hope your cold goes away!
Ooohh. Hexies. Can't wait to see how that turns out!
You should probably wait until you're over that bug before performing such delicate surgery. That's a serious looking ouchie and you'll need to be at the top of your game. I'm sure the little guy is feeling more comfortable about being away from home and scheduled for surgery after his visit with Beatrix. Hope you're feeling better soon.
What a loved teddy! I was waiting in a queue at the bank yesterday when a couple came in with a toddler and a toy Simba. I had o tell them that my youngest had the same Simba fir her 1st birthday, and still sleeps with it. Ours doesnt look quite as lovely as theirs – but then Niki did pass her driving test a few months ago, LOL
Hope you're feeling better today and able to cut, sew, stuff, operate to get you through the day.
Lots of Love,
Poor teddy! Poor you! Hope you, and teddy, recover quickly.
Your tute is up- hooray! Trying hard not to start the zippered pouch until my Habitat project is done.
