I have been wanting to show you this happy couple. They reappeared last week from the dark depths of the 'Toy Box'. They are both about 35 years old and were made by my Nana. They have been very loved by me (and still are). Then my oldest son loved them and then my youngest has loved them. It is almost time for me to reclaim them. I think they deserve a trip to the 'Dolly Hospital' but I am a bit too scared to touch them. They both need a good wash and could do with a re-stuff! They are called 'Lady' and 'Ted'. I know, highly original huh? They have lasted well though and have both been on many adventures. I am amazed they have survived the years. My Nana knitted all of her grandchildren toys and I think we all had a 'Ted'. I also used to get lots of pretty 'Sindy doll' clothes and baby doll clothes. The boys had football kits and cricket jumpers for their Action Men. I think handmade toys are the best as the love gets stitched in.
I am still going with the old 'Tour de Fleece'. I did over and hour yesterday of 'Rainbow' and when all is calm again tonight will spin a bit more. I am very tempted to ply 'Rainbow' with the grey. I will have to do a sample of a couple of meters and make my mind up.
