I just cannot stop making these at the moment.  I find them so relaxing to do and I just sit on the sofa in the evening and stitch and stuff them and make them up. This little lady I finished a while ago.

I adore this particular Tilda Fabric, its the same colour as my favourite PTI cardstock and ink colour, Berry Sorbet.

Close up..

There are a lot of girls at work who are about to go on maternity leave within the next month so I have been asked to make some of these and some teddies as part of their leaving gift.  This was meant to be one of them but I think I may be keeping this one for myself!

Another little bunny today. I wanted to make something for the boys this time.  I found some fab stripey fabric with anchors on it which was just perfect for his dungarees and set me on a mission  to make a little sail boat for him.

A closer look....

The boat is lightly stuffed and a stick inserted and glued into place.  I made up the sail from white linen and stitched it all round and then tacked onto the stick and the boat.  Worked out well I think for a first attempt.

Thanks for dropping in, its really appreciated.

Its seems to be birthdays everywhere at the moment.  I have another one to share today.  I find it really hard to make cards for boys/men so this was the best I could come up with.  The mum who asked me for it was chuffed to bits with it so I must have hit it just right!

The inside...

A closer look...

 and another box envelope...

Off to start Sunday dinner now.. roast beef this weekend... yummy!  Have a good one.
