A Temporary Break...

What a start to the year! Flu, school, and busy regular lives have meant, sadly, less attention to our Lovey Repair friends.  So, we've decided to take a needed brief hiatus until spring.

We are still most dedicated to our young friends who have lovies in dire need - do please reach out.  And please contact us if you're interested in hearing from us when we're ready to take new patients!

Cholly's Secret!

Once upon a time, there was a doll named Cholly.  We did some searching, and this is what a regular Cholly looks like:

I'm new and shiny!

But if you REALLY love a Cholly, then THIS is what it looks like:

Times two! That's how much love Cholly got!

Our task was to make a new lovey for the next generation using the loved Cholly as our muse. And so after some careful consideration and swatting, we decided to make a "Secret Cholly."  We used the parts we could, and anything that was extra loved was tucked in side!

Wrapped in batting...

And snuggled in!

With some stitching and stuffing, Secret Cholly was ready to be a lovey again!

Ta da!

We even kept the little tag on the back!

Thanks for coming Cholly and letting us get you ready for more love!

Elegant Ellie-phant!

Another Ellie the Elephant, this time love-worn and dog nibbled.

I'm yummy, that's for sure!

Ellie needed a serious bath.

And an ear scrub. 

And some patching.

But after a bit of lovey repair, Ellie was ready for more cuddles!

All set!

Thanks for hanging out with us, Ellie!

Lovey Repair is taking a Holiday!

First, we wanted to give a special shout out to Ba and Reggie - two more Loveys who have a special Christmas reservation to come to Lovey Repair in January - we can't wait to meet you!!

Meanwhile it's been a very busy season for Lovey repair and so we're taking some time off until the new year.  Time to quilt, bake, sleep, and get cozy.

We'll also be working on our new favorite hobby - making bobbin lace!

Thanks to Ellyane for coming in to the city to give Amalia a private lesson in lace making for her birthday. She had been asking to learn since we say Ellyane's demo in October, and now we're both hooked.

Or, at least, bobbined.

Please continue to email us your inquiries and just know that we'll be scheduling repairs beginning in the new year!

D'aboon Deserves D'best!

This is a special Lovey Repair message for a sweet monkey named D'aboon!

We heard from a friend of yours that you needed some time away to refresh a bit.

I do.

And so we wanted to surprise your owner with a special Christmas message! Everything's been arranged - you're coming to Lovey Repair! We can't wait to see you in the new year!

Wheee!!! Can you even fix the hole under my arm?

Yep - we can!!

Merry Christmas, D'aboon - you're clearly one very lucky, very loved monkey (with the BEST name!) and we can't wait to meet you!

Perfect Patty!

Being a lovey is hard work.

It is.

Because, let's be honest, all that snuggling and cuddling and loving can leave a lovey a bit drained.

It's true.

Thankfully we specialize in refreshing, relaxing, restorative spa days where loveys like Patty Dog can recharge!

The bath was my favorite part.  No, the brushing.  Definitely the brushing!!

Thanks for letting us pamper you, Patty Dog!  It was a treat to have you visit!
