Mr Olden Days Rory

The other day I turned this little pile of clothes and some polar fleece into this – Mr Olden Days Rory!

He was visiting an historical school/farmyard/community type setup with his school (not Sovereign Hill, one closer to home).

He had a great day, but “It will take too long to tell you all about it Mum”!

I did learn that he did really like the blacksmith a lot though.

Thanks for the compliments on my quilt for Amelia – I don’t really have time to reply to comments at the moments.

I am spending my free time building a website to coordinate helpers who are stepping in to help one of the families in our local community.  The father of the family has been struck down with a flesh eating disease, and has had extensive surgery on his arm to save his life.  He will be having skin grafts and rehab for about a year.  This has been very scary and a major blow, especially as he is the worker and driver of the family – his wife is vision impaired.  If any of you out there have used the web to co-ordinate help in a similar way, I would love to hear from you.

Anyway, back to Old Time Rory – I think his lost teeth (yes, he has already lost another one) make him look even more cute and old-timeish.  if only it wasn’t so hard to get him to smile!

  1. Ethan loved the blacksmith also, he was lucky he was standing in the second row, because the boy in front of him had a spark land on his pants and burn a hole…

  2. He look adorable! Let me know if I can help in anyway? Do they have kids cause I have some donated stuff I need to pass on, its all new?
