These Hug Me Slugs have already been spoken for and are on their way to their new homes, but I thought I share them anyway. I finished them today.
I also thought I’d share this mysterious pile of night-traveling newspapers. This was a three-cat job, at least.
I finished a small group of Hug Me Sock Toad stuffed animal toys today. They all have polka dots.
I will be putting my handmade stuffed animal toys and other creatures in our Ruffing’s shop.
This one is examining a beautiful lace-cap hydrangea that was a Mother’s Day gift years ago. It has gotten huge this year.
This is what they look like on the bottom. I sew signed, handmade tags made of coordinating quilting cotton to each one. I turn under the edges of my tags and stitch them on by hand to make them neat.
Phoebe assisted me with my photo props today, checking out our doll bench and playing with the straw hat I used to cart them outdoors.
She likes to participate in her own way. She’s been letting me pet her on the tail more lately. We’re hoping she’ll let us pet the rest of her eventually.
Bertie, below, is more confident. I think that even shows in her face.
