Thank goodness for that....

On boxing day, after all the Christmas gifts had been made, I decided to make Liv a gift for her 1st day at school..... and what better then a new friend.....

I thought this would take a few days but nearly 2 weeks later & I've just finished... I'm giving it to her tomorrow so it was touch & go. It was so fiddly, all the clothes are removable including the tie. I hope she likes it .....

My giveaway for the crochet slippers finished yesterday.... I will be doing the draw on Saturday with the help of my lovely assistant.......

Only 2 people are in it so you have a 50/50 chance.... good luck to &


  1. I love your glamourous assistant :) The teddy bear is very cute - you are clever :)Thanks for the well wishes about the tooth, I have some strong painkillers so it's dulling the pain a bit :) xxx

  2. Hi Joe....I love the bear, such a good friend to take to school....I'm away for a bit, back soon....:>))


  3. Wow, that bear is gorgeous. I want to go back to school so I can have one! Clever you.

  4. Oh what a cute bear!!

    Glad to hear your book arrived and I hope that it gives your friend a good impression to head off to the Carribean with.
