She Lives

I haven't been a very good blogger lately. The problem is that I've been working on three things, basically: one was a secret gift amigurumi project, one is David's kilt hose, and the the other is Grandma's Gift Wrap. Obviously, I couldn't show pictures of the secret project, and it's not terribly exciting to explain precisely how much longer a sock or a wrap is.

Luckily for all of us, the secret gift recipient received her secret gift yesterday, and I can now show pictures!

Yes, the bear's face is on its belly. I know I'm not the only person in the world who's seen the Maytag commercial where the repairman is in a toy factory, fixing the machines because they're making giraffes with two heads and--you guessed it--teddy bears with their faces on their bellies. Even though I had to remind her that she had seen that commercial and expressed a desire to own a teddy bear with the face on the belly. Happy Birthday!

Here's a pre-completion photo.

I felt very clever for figuring out how to make its ears all by myself.

I even gave it a tail.

David's kilt hose are getting longer. See?

And Grandma's Gift Wrap is now 38" long.
