WIP - (flash) the border collie soft toy ...


i was baby sitting the evening before seb completed his coastal charity walk, and thinking about the next day i took some fur pieces and a soft toy book over to my friends house - well, i can't knit!
this is the dog without any stuffing or eyes, or tail!


i used 33 pieces of fabric to create this dog, and inside the ears is a vintage style newsprint cotton, which im rather fond of, to allude to all the media attention for seb and flash!
what do you think of him so far?


the original flash painting and a print for chester park school, side by side for the last time ...


me and the painting before leaving for the beach, i did think i would be giving the pic to seb, instead of raffling or auctioning it, but i thought i might have to argue the case with seb, who had already reached his fund raising target...!

The toy looks great so far - aren't you clever!

Right choice to auction it. Ah it sounds as if you have the same problem of letting go, just the same way I feel when the bears toddle off out of the door, or into someone elses hands.
But pleased it was auctioned.
Good one RAGGY RAT

the pic WAS given to seb soggibottom, not auctioned after all ...

Aw... shame, BUT maybe after all they had gone through together, he deserved to have it.
Fantastic pic anyway and hope you are really pleased that it went to the best home. x

You know what some of the old dears are like who read/or don't read the postings properly!

I have a Soggibottom bear, and I love him to bits, and when people come over, they all hear about his stories. Even the naughty ones. Like when he urinated on my skirting board on his first night here.
