What have you been up to ?

I have been making animals without legs again.

I have been playing with some new felts from Winterwood. These are new colours for 2014 and that teal blue and that yellowy green are just screaming at me to use them!

I have been knocking out a few cushion covers as samples for my kids class in Ballan in the next school holidays.

And obviously that has left me far too busy to actually iron that cushion front before I took a photo.

  1. Legless animals!! That cushion cover is wonderful, I like umbrellas very much at the moment, very symbolic.

  2. Such a cute little mouse! I was extremely excited recently to come across your patterns and sample critters at GJ's in Lygon St when I was in Melb for a shopping trip. I haven't found any of your little guys up here in Albury! I may have gone a bit 'schoolgirl groupie', my friends had no idea!
    Love your work!

    "wide eyed and legless"

  6. Miss Mouse is just adorable. Although I don't work with wool those colors are so gorgeous I could collect it and use as a decoration, right? Umbrellas a happy things. Yours is the happiest.

  7. Well, a girl can't be expected to do everything and ironing should definitely take a backseat. LOVE the umbrella -- looks like you're having a great time sewing!

  8. the mouse is adorable and I think you should leave her legless. Disabled animals are underrepresented in the soft toy world and I think you should do something to right this prejudice.

  9. Animal heads could be the next big thing, reminds me of when they were on walking sticks. perhaps on umbrella handles? I am working on my charity stuff as usual.

  10. Ooh your mouse is delightful! I can't wait for you to write the pattern for her! What about a mousey story too - in all your spare time! ;o) (I'm not asking for much!) Xx

  11. Most of us dont mind being legless every now and again. I just bought a couple of bottles of gin and might indulge in few tipples over the long weekend. OHh.. at least your mouse is stuffed! very cute Jodes- as usual!

  12. I think kids will appreciated the wrinkled look, as that is how it will most likely appear at home!

  13. So cute! Legless or no, she's adorable. That ironing job should take just a sec, next time you pass by the sewing room.

    Me, I've been busy with my first grandson, one week old!
