So instead I'll show you the boys stocking toys which I didn't think would get finished in time. I had started making them other things but then Gabe eventually told me what he had asked Santa for. He wouldn't tell us at first as he said ' it was a secret'. He asked for three things, a polar bear, an Elf and a Santa Claus . The polar bear caused a mad rush around the town and we eventually found a little one in a cheap book shop. The Santa Claus was a chocolate one and the Elf, well as you can see I managed to make an Elf which has the original name of 'Elfie'.
I had started making Milo a stripy wolf in his favourite colours but then he became hooked on playing a game called Little Big Planet so Hub suggested making him a 'Sackboy' which is the main character from the game. I hadn't been totally happy with the wolf idea so Sackboy it was and although I couldn't get the right zip he didn't come out too bad. Which reminds me I must add the wolf to my ever growing list of WIP's !!
If you are wondering about my new header photo which I think is absolutely gorgeous, all credit goes to my dad who took it. I haven't taken any that I like recently, my photography has gone right down the pan unfortunately, so another note to self..... must try harder.
