I'm back! Bloody hell I hope we never have gastro in this house again! 5 out of 6 were sick, littlest one was spared. One full week of sick people. Not cool. Sometimes I kid myself and think that 4 kids is easy peasy and a family 0f 6 is 'normal', after last week I have realised we are not 'normal' and 4 kids is plenty enough for me (husband, time to visit the vet).
Anyway that little guy is Zet from Australian Homesewn. Not the greatest pic, was running out the door when I took it. He was a present for a friends little boy. I made him from cord. Love it. Think this is how I will use up some of my stash, no need for it here, too hot!
...and "Hello Foo Fii"
formally known as "Pepper"
When I saw here what was coming in last months Homespun I knew I was going to make one. I cheated, as husband put it, brought the kit from the lovely dear fii. Who I should add is incredibly generous. There was a tiny delay in the kit arriving and Fi was very kind in sending something extra as an apology, completely not need, and lovely all the same!
I just love her! Been a very long time since I have done french knots and daisies. Lovely to sit and stitch with the kids. And, shhh don't tell anyone, it is the first time since high school I have used felt! Shock! And I love it!
Still not sure if softies are my thing, time will tell.
