our creative space 'rhino repair'

Greetings all,
Meet Berri, he's the green rhino (or rhino-saurus as he's know in these parts) from Berrima NSW.  It's not often my 3rd girl asks for anything but she positively would not budge on the concept of living life without this knitted rhino when she spied him one school holidays on the way home from Bowral. 
As what happens with much-loved-softies, they show wear & tear, like an amputated limb, missing eye or grow threadbare.  When my sweet girl showed Kylie . . . wonder knitter, crochet queen & softie surgeon . . . Berri's injuries from too much love, Kylie too him away in her ambulance/ family ute.
My daughter sat by my mobile waiting for news when he was out of surgery.  Then magically we got the SMS saying he was fine & ready for delivery (in a mere 24 hours).
Can you believe the amazing job Kylie did??  She even delivered him home with a 'Berri Repair Kit' for future injuries due to too many hugs.
Look at those eyes, oh, doesn't he look so much happier??  Ditto for my daughter.  So yet another brilliant reason to visit Brisbane, Kylie is there at the ready, able to fix anything & everything.  Love you Kylie!!  Thanks so much, happy creating spacing on Thursday everyone, love Posie

I'm glad to see Berri is fixed up..I have just spent the last few minutes reading the last three posts about your Qld visit. We drove the Canberra to Brisbane route quite often too when the kids were young and our journeys weren't dissimilar to yours! Our kids were very good travellers too. I loved travelling with them as everybody had to talk together and trips always made us closer as a family!

Gorgeous! Yay Kylie. I adore the colour green as well.

Kylie said...

The icing on the cake was seeing her face when he bounced back through the door:) Hope the little kit doesn't need to be used in a hurry (have more of the green if it is required though:)

My sister and I at ages 7 and 8 decided to repair our favourite spotted dog ourselves (the squeaker in his ear stopped working). He was even more loved with his repairs despite their odd looking nature:) Cyndy

I love the repair job on Berri. We have Kindy Doll whose back of head started unravelling years ago and I had to 'kidnap' her and hide her away to protect what was left of her until I could get someone to repair her. She's still sitting in the top dresser draw, hidden away, after 6 years! I really ought to get her repaired :)
