Have you seen what's started ?
Yep everyday from now until August 1st each of these blogs will be sharing a fantastic tutorial.
You know, I always promise myself that I won't leave it till the end of the year to start my making, but I always do. Maybe this is what I need to get me in the mood. I have to admit that last year was a bit of a handmade disaster, rescued only by Etsy.

Of course as they days got shorter and darker and colder it was time for Edna to move permanently into the stable , where she is warm and safe.
and I will not be defeated. I will keep on, until the sun shines and Edna and I can gallop once more across the plains!
He has only thrown me twice!

So again it was hugs all round and promises to keep in touch and a lot of congratulations to Zoe and Merrilyn and their amazing team (Jodie spunk-bubble Abel, Joy, Amy, Michelle, Rahnee and many more I have no doubt) and it was time to hop back in the little car and come home.

I spent a HUGE amount of time yesterday working on little baby turtles, step by step photos -the whole bit.
But you know what? As cute as they are, I just don't think they are replicable - and no its not because I think I am some freaky genius and no-one else can do it, its because something that is only 2 1/2 inches long should not be made up of 12 separate pieces....
I was absolutely ramming layers of wool felt through my machine...and I just don't think it will translate that well into a sewing instruction
Back to the drawing board on that one.
Of course Milligan may have preferred that I spent that time looking through my 70 kersquillion buttons to find some to hold his wings in place
(is it wrong to admit that it would be quicker to drive to a shop and buy two buttons than it would be to sift through my huge unsorted tubs of buttons?)
So here he is, still with pin eyes, and cottons hanging from his feet, but steadfastly loyal and happy in his own duck world.
When he is totally finished and accessorized he will be heading off on an adventure and not back here for quite a while.
and even though I know that he is just Doctors flannel and hobby fill and cotton.........
I'll miss him.
