Custard is on his way to the USA. I worry so much about them travelling all that way! The relief when I know they've got there! Daft isn't it?
I'm still working on a bear that I've made from crushed vintage velvet in green. My Robert said it reminds him of a smoking jacket. I see his point. He's all done apart from having his ears sewn on, so at the moment he sits there listening to silence. He's a long time in creation as I've been sourcing the right materials for a garland around his neck. He's forest inspired, so I've got ivy leaves and I'm waiting for some great acorns to be delivered which I have just purchased from ebay. Rather than sit and twiddle my fingers I'll make a start on another bear.
Alfie had his second check up on his ear at the vets yesterday evening. The drain wasn't really working well enough, so it was took out (this is where I let Robert hold him and I stood behind him until it was done!). We now have to keep the two holes open with bathing, so it continues to drain. Anyone feeling lightheaded yet? I shall have to give it a go on my own as its a long while until Robert gets home each day. I don't mind the bathing bit, its the holding him at the same time! Anyway, I'm off to give it a go. Wish me luck.
