Hug Me Sock Kittens, handmade art toys by Elizabeth RuffingA nice customer sent me this cute boy-with-his-slug photo. Adorable. That’s a 12-inch Hug Me Slug, and it looks half his own height. I hear he loves it.

This is her investigating my workroom, with the sock kittens in progress. I had left the door ajar by accident, and had to wait for her to finish her tour.
