Welcome, Bobby!

I've always heard that English bobbies ride bicycles, but lacking one the right size, I gave him an Alpaca to try. He seems to like it.
The very talented Rachel Slater has en etsy shop called Knitwish. She donated this charming knitted English policeman, affectionately known as Bobby, to the Australian bush fire relief fund. I was honored to donate to the Australian Red Cross, and in addition was thrilled to be able to buy Bobby,the proceeds of which went to aid the fire victims. Bobby is enjoying his new home, and went for a little trip to Hawaii, visiting Lisa's Happy Hula Huts.

He found the computer chair comfortable.

Thank you so much, Rachel! I promise to give Bobby a good home.

I thought I saw Bobby outside earlier! Aloha Bobby! I'm so glad you liked the fabrics...can't wait to see what you do with them. You've done such wonderful things with them so far!

Bobby looks quite happy on the alpaca--what a clever idea. You've been busy lately! Thanks for showing all the lovely quilts from the quilt show. Love, Sara

He looks so adorable and what a wonderful contribution to the bushfires.

We have some knitted friends around our home as mum is such a good knitter.
I cant knit at all.

What a fun post, Diana! Bobby is very cute and how wonderful that donations went to those in Australia. :)
