Meet Mama Lovey Lamb. She was finished just a short while ago.
Mama Lovey Lamb has been so patient, she was started way back in March. She was worked on here and there then thrown in my car to be worked on when there was a few moments between patients.
Finally yesterday she had had enough, she demanded to be brought in the house and worked on in a proper way, not in a hot car while I gobbled down my lunch and got crumbs all over her.
I did as she asked and you know what, bringing her in the house was a sure way to get her done. Her bottom and stuffing was finished today during someones nap. She is so happy to finally be here.
And she is more than happy to look after Little Totoro, or Lovely Lamb. Mama was made with Lion Brand Wool Ease, two skeins of 099 Fisherman and one of 151 Grey Heather. I used almost all of the cream and about half of the grey, approximately 450 yards of yarn. A size H hook kept the stitches close enough that the stuffing stayed in place. She has LOTS of stuffing in her, almost a bag and a half, her middle is expanding just like mine, what a coincidence! Apparently menopause is not treating her well either. I am a bit jealous of her sweet smile, seems like she does not let things like an expanding waist line bother her a bit.
This is a bit blurry but it shows Little Buddy happy as he can be with a, "Mama Totoro". She is half as big as he is!
You can find the Lovey Lamb pattern at Posie Gets Cozy.
Now that Mama Lovey Lamb is finished I can get back to serious business. Look what I am going to make!
Hope you are all having a good week and thank you all for your wonderful and touching comments about my work situation, I felt like you were all helping me during the weekend when I was feeling rather sad.
