Hi Bloggers!

oooo I'm pooped again, but luckily tonight I didn't have to do any extra work. As you may or may not know I have started to work on Childrens Book Illustration in my spare time, as well as the day job...but I'm not complaining, I just wish there were a few more hours in the day, and that my eyes didn't get sooo tired..

Any way Mr M is yelling for me...we are having a Lord of the Rings part 2 evening....

I'm coming Mr Frodo!!

Nighty Night

Its Giveaway Time!!

Hey there lovely Bloggers!

I think I have been blogging for 2 years now.....or there abouts :0)

Since I have been here in blogland reading all these amazing blogs, I've learnt to sew much better than I ever thought I could, taught myself to crochet,...waffled on about my cat, and pushed myself with my Illustration career, so that now I'm actually working on Children's books :0)

So to say a mini thankyou to those of you who stop by my lil corner on the WWW...its time for a GIVEAWAY!!

Well little Mouse is looking for a home...a little bit bear and a little bit cat...fully jointed, made from mohair, made by me!!

So all you have to do is leave me a little message, and link me to your blog if thats ok....:0)

Closing date...Wednesday 22nd September 8pm...

Happy Saturday...

Do cats and dogs get on?

I think so Dear Bloggers!...I must explain that I have been an admirer of Danielle's Mohair Toys for ages (this is the link!)...Pussman & Co and I have wanted a Teddy Cat for such a long time!
Danielle very kindly offered to swap with me...and look what arrived last week!...

Isn't she a darling!...I wanted a toy inspired by my Silkiesue...yes mad I know, but I love my cat, and I wanted something to always remind me of her (Don't worry she is very much in the land of the living!!)... (Don't you think she looks like she has stepped out of a childrens book illustration?)

.. and so I have been busy making something to swap back with...

I'm a little nervous, and Danielle's sewing is I hope she likes this little chap!

As you can see Stanley is rather taken by Miss Silkie above!...She also arrived in the most beautiful cloth bag, and Danielle also included a lovely card..

So here he is...Stanley is made from Mohair, he is stuffed with Kapok and had little glass beads in his tum, and is 5 way jointed!...He is a little different from the original, I had hoped to dye his ears a little darker...but I don't think my dye was strong enough :0(

He will be sent off to Danielle this weekend...hope you like himxxx

Happy Wednesday xx

Love Sam xx

Ps so if you like me love vintage toys...then pay Danielle's shop a won't be disappointed xx

Hey Bloggers..

I'm currently sat at my desk, eating a bowl of stew, at 8.20pm, working away, whilst occasionally stopping to pet Miss Sue, and do odd bits of house work!

Before I forget, I must mention that I received the most beautiful bloggy swap gift...which I haven't been able to mention yet as I am also making something of the furry nature in return..
so keep your eyes peeled toward the end of the week and all will be revealed...

And I may be doing a little giveaway too, to say thanks for stopping by my little bit of blogland too..

I've got to crack on with more rest for the wicked!
