A couple of ring-ins!
I hope the Teddy's don't mind this handsome puss coming to the picnic today.
This precious puss was made by my Mum for my older daughter who is now 35. Mum made squillions of them in all different colours for school and church fetes.
My favourites were the black and whites and the tortoiseshells but alas there are none but this little one left. She is about 6" high to the top of her head. Mum would go to the op shop to buy old jumpers then cut them up (I cut up many a jumper myself) to stuff the cats, elephants, penguins and other critters with.
I remember the frenetic mess of knitted animal limbs all over the kitchen table when a fete was nigh. She did a great job and thoroughly enjoyed the hundreds of hours she would have invested into these knitted beasties. It was truly a labour of love for her.
Here is a little Pony in a Purse (a la Paris Hilton and her unfortunate pooch) that I bought for the Grandies to play with when they come to visit. I know she will be very well behaved at the picnic as she is used to confined spaces and loves her little Purse.
