Isobel, having re-started the blogging process yesterday, has asked me to take over today and here goes....as she said when ending her rather long blog last night, she has now completed the covers for her kitchen appliances sewing project and we'd both like to prove it with a couple of photographs to show some of the final products.

Isobel did so enjoy rejuvenating the little fellow that when a friend of the family mentioned he'd just found his old Bear (while engaged in the sad business of clearing his late mother's home) and that he was in a bit of a mess - she suggested that he send his Teddy to us to see if we could help to get him better.
Well, after thinking about it - understandably, folks are so fond of their Bears (and other toys) that they are sometimes reluctant to let them be mended. It is, alas, inevitable that they will never return to the way they once were, and folks are leery (good Canadian word for wary) of changes. Anyway, the Teddy arrived yesterday in the post and although he is indeed a well-loved Bear, he has certainly been in the wars by the look of him. Just have a look-see...

Isobel has contacted her fur fabric supplier and found four different fabrics that might be nearly right. She's asked for swatches to be sent and will then send them to RFE (Ed Ted's best friend) so he can choose. Then, the remedial treatment can begin.
We'll keep you posted - and meanwhile, here is another picture of Ed Ted to end for today. Bye! Cy Bear
