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!
