finished!

Off to the post office to mail this sweet batch to photographer & internet friend Jaci Sue, who raised a whole bunch of $ for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital in a baby photo contest this spring. She saw some of the Christmas gifts I sewed up for young cousins & nephews & nieces, and gave me the honor of making some of her prizes this year. My youngest daughter has a complicated medical life, so this is a cause dear to my heart and worth every stitch to be able to contribute to.

The bunnies are a sewing stars pattern, but versions of the others will drift in and out of my shop. The little blue guy, "April Showers" (bring May flowers, except in this case it was for a boy, so I just did a leaf baby for his pocket) has a twin that will be posted this afternoon. My daughters and I are loving the leaf baby, so I think I'll do a whole series of little nature babies for the shop, sold individually & in sets. Can't you just picture a cloud, rain drop, flower, bud, seed, grass blade...? tres fun!

I must admit that I noticed the little leaf baby and pouch on the monster and loved it... I think the series would be a great idea!!!

Well then, I guess Miss Ellee will have to trial run them for me. Do you think the size is too small for her? (eat & choke--they're about 2" long)

I'm not sure... she puts anything she can reacdh in her mouth... but maybe if the little baby were attached to the pouch with a ribbon or string or something so you can still put it in and out that might work. But I sure would love it!
