Introducing the Sewing Box Toys

Once upon a time, there was a family of toys. They were very very old and a bit grubby and more than a little the worse for wear, which was strange, because they had been living in a sewing box together, quite happily, for many years. But nobody had thought to stitch them, or help them in any way.
There was a big ted with a flat face, a smiley mouth and only one eye. There was a little ted with googly eyes, and black ears. There was a very very small ted with no eyes. There was a fluffy rabbit, with a green ribbon round his neck. And there was the penguin.
What were their names? I'm not sure yet.
Wait for the next thrilling installment to find out!

These dolls look well loved. Also I hear a good story in spinning! Now I must go find your other blog about gardens in Scotland.
Always a gardener,

They do, don't they? I bought them all together in an auction sale, mainly because I was sorry for them - they looked so sad, and also as though they had been together for a long time. I've kept them and kept them together - can't bear to split them up! But you're right, there may be a story in the spinning!
