Todays picnicers are the boys from the 'triple c' (Cane Chair Crew). All made by me when I had loads of patience. Gomer in the vest and Bruno the big boy (22 inches tall) are teddy Bit's patterns. Bruno used to stand up but his joints are a little wobbly now. Pickles is in the blue cardy and I have to say I have a very big soft spot for him. He was featured in one of the Bear creations magazines and is a Teddyworks design. his cardy was knitted by a lovely Kiwi lass I worked with who got so sick of me cursing trying to work out the pattern (I'm no knitter) she took it off me and made it. I love the colour of his fur as it does remind me of pickles. Now the cane chair they sit on was bought for my brother and one for my sister. I was considered too old at the time to want one. I was secretly devestated. They were hand made by the Blind Institute in Brisbane. Many years later my brother was throwing it out in a garage sale and when I saw it I screamed NOoooo!!! He looked out me strangely and said "oh for goodness sake take it home". So I did and the boys sit there quite comfortably together as they are best mates. We are having our picnic inside today because it's a wee bit damp outside.
