Billy

Memories are made of this

I was going through Bill's clothes to donate them when I came across his flannel shirts. He has several of them and I thought something could be made from them to remember him by. Thus Billy was born.


I found this pattern at JoAnn's :


I don't sew that well, but the patterns and the instructions are very clear and I could follow them pretty easily.



Billy was born.

Here he is, sitting in Bill's favorite chair. But wait. Even though he was made from a shirt, he still needed a shirt, don't you think?


Here we go. That's better.


Here are Billy and Billy 2. Billy 2 was given to Bill's daughter Erica. He was made from a shirt that she gave to him two Christmases ago. Now she has the shirt back. And more.



I will be making more Billys. Each of the grandchildren will get one on his/her birthday. Billy, of course, will stay with me.
In the meantime I did some knitting.

A honeycomb vest. A present for Erica.

Another honeycomb. This time a cardigan sweater/jacket. This one is mine. It looks just like Runty.


And that little guy was inspecting Granddaughter Ingrid's Wonderful Wallaby.

This last picture has nothing to do with Teddy bears, knitting or cat, but it's so pretty I decided to include it anyway. Here are the trees in the Shenandoah National Park one foggy morning in November as we drove along the Skyline Drive hoping to see the Fall foliage and instead encountering ... ice and snow!

Pretty anyway, eh?

O provedor paga 20 centavos por hora de conexão discada com ligação local para mais de 2100 cidades do Brasil. O CresceNet tem um acelerador de conexão, que deixa sua conexão até 10 vezes mais rápida. Quem utiliza banda larga pode lucrar também, basta se cadastrar no CresceNet e quando for dormir conectar por discada, é possível pagar a ADSL só com o dinheiro da discada. Nos horários de minuto único o gasto com telefone é mínimo e a remuneração do CresceNet generosa.
