Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge – Eyes


The Eyes Have It

Occasionally I am called on to be eye doctor to the old teddies that Naomi likes to collect. Here are a couple of them. One was a sad case as when she got him he had no eyes or ears and his head had become detached from his body. He was an unfinished repair project when she bought him so as I’ve made a few bears she asked me to see what I could do. The eyes are actually pretty easy to do, the ears were harder as I had no idea what the originals looked like. I bought a piece of mohair in a similar colour and made some, I think the result is not too bad although perhaps they are a little larger than they should be.
The other old fellow only needed one eye so he was an easy fix. I made him a dressing gown to wear until he was mended.

Born in England in 1957 my family came to Australia in 1966. I grew up in Adelaide, South Australia, where I met and married my husband David. We came together over a mutual love of trains. Both of us worked for the railways for many years, his job was with Australian National Railways, while I spent 12 years working for the STA, later TransAdelaide the Adelaide city transit system. After leaving that job I worked in hospitality until 2008. We moved to Tasmania in 2002 to live in the beautiful Huon Valley. David passed away in 2015 and I'm here on my own now but I have Cindy the dog and Polly the cat to keep me company. I currently co-write two Wordpress blogswith my sister Naomi. Our doll blog "Dolls, Dolls, Dolls", and a "Our Other Blog" which is about everything else but with a focus on photographs and places in Tasmania.
