Friday Finish - Crochet Teddy


So while we were at the beach in the West Coast of Clare this week, I brought a portable crochet project with me and finished this Teddy Bear.


It was a great project to bring for a few days away. The parts are easy enough to make and I crocheted him in the evenings after some lovely walks on the beach.

We practically had the beach to ourselves.

And the weather for October was gorgeous.  So lucky.  We walked the little legs off poor Wilbur.
 How do I get all the way up there?
 Ha ha made it!
Charly on the other hand had no interest in sitting still and I couldn't get a photo with her eyes open.  Mucky pup has had great fun in the seaweed and needs a good wash!
So we left the beach and came home for birthday parties and astronomy club duties, and I discovered, the glow in the dark turtle, I had ordered to go with my little bear, had not turned up in the post.  I thought the package waiting at home was it but it turned out to be a Qwertee T-Shirt for me.

Arghh.  So with half a present for my best friends little girl, I decided to make a quick doll quilt to go with it.  I had a few squares left from a Me & My Sister Charm pack.  I think this is Twirl.

Inspired by Crazy Mom Quilts doll bedding tutorial I made a pillow case and pillow to go with it.
I think this is cute, so this is the birthday present and the turtle that projects the night sky onto the ceiling can be a Christmas present whenever it turns up!

You can just see Wilbur in the background wrecked from the few days, having a proper holiday now and just waking from a snooze.  Time to hide the teddy before the dogs think it's theirs!
