A Jolly Halloween

 A Jolly Halloween ...... I have had this beautiful post card for years, with the thought of making a teddy bear dressed the same way

Jolly is 5 1/2' curly mohair (7 !/2" w/ hat)   carring her own black cat and pumpkin

Fred is my constant companion.  He has been every where with me.
Last week he underwent reconstructive work.  He has a new nose and mouth. He's much happier.

Fred wanted to get in the picture with the white pumpkins I have been making.  He's so happy with his new profile.
However, there is no hope for his lost fur. He will be getting a new sweater, but here in Florida it's still in the 80's so it's a little to warm, yet.
