Tiffany and the Raggedies Part 2

When last we left them, all four little Raggedies were better, but the two big Raggedies were untouched and Tiffany, the poor deteriorating green elephant was in a spa. :-)

The large Raggedies were really big.  At least 4 feet tall!  As I think I mentioned, their clothes were torn because the children had worn them for costumes!  They also had some other issues.  This is Big Raggedy Ann’s treatment plan:

1) Replace elastic on her  pantaloons, apron, and dress sleeves with drawstrings.

2) stitch the two tears on her  face.  One has been stitched before but is pulling and the second has  not been stitched.  She will still have obvious scars here, but her face  will be stabilized.

3) Stitch her hair back in place.

4) Stitch back of dress seam where  torn

5) Recover both legs ankle to knee

6) Clean clothes

Here’s a close up of her legs and pantaloons all better:

And here she is showing off her new clothes, neat hair, and stitched face:

Meanwhile, I send a couple fabric options for Tiffany to their person.  Tiffany was calico, and quite a few decades old, so a perfect match was out of the question.  Tiffany’s original skin is the one with the orange flowers:

Their person chose the top image and Tiffany had many transplants to get back to herself.  

She still needed a few more surgeries, and her new eyes installed, but Big Andy had been waiting patiently for the other six to get better, and he needed some help too.  His treatment plan was:

Stitch two face wounds

Fix all clothing seams and clean

Reattach hat (his hat came to the hospital about a month after he did… it had been lost in the person’s house).

Here’s Andy all better:

And finally, Tiffany had her eye surgery.  Her person had very specific memories:  Arch shaped yellow eyes with a flat bottom, blanket stitch all around the perimeter, no pupil.  Here she is with her twenty/twenty vision, dressed, healthy, and ready to go home to be hugged by the next generation:

The group of seven posed for a photo together in the  hospital (here you can really see their size differences:

They made it safely home and their person wrote:

Hi, Beth!I just unpacked “the crew” and they cannot stop telling me about their lovely time! LolThank you so much for the loving care that you gave them. Truly memorable for us all!!!

Thank you again!! The names sound like a singing group, don’t they?? Lol

She sent a photo of the band happily ensconced at home too:

Reasons I love Megan Denise Fox.

She’s the cutest mama bear about her sons and she’s not afraid to admit it. (Also is Tiffany always like this or is she a Fox fan-girl? xD)


Tiffani Amber Thiessen x Brian Austin Green

Even though they’re not together anymore/are both happily married to other people and have kids, these photos are still everything. In the 90s, together, they were so in love and they were everything. They have since both admitted that they look back on their relationship with nothing but fond memories.


Brian Austin Green (on before he told Tiffani he was in love with her):
“I thought about her all the time…but I had this reputation as a pickup artist, and I didn’t want Tiff to think all I wanted was a one-night dealie. So I was hesitant to even kiss her on the cheek.”

Tiffani Thiessen (on the time Brian stayed with her during a thunderstorm before they started dating):
“He was such a gentleman… it was then that I knew I wanted to be with him forever.”
