I’m not quite sure why I thought I’d leap from simple outline of an owl (first try at embroidery) to Ladybug Girl (insanely detailed second try at embroidery), but now I understand it. I’m a) a sucker for a challenge, or b) a glutton for punishment. But I’m having a blast. I took a photo of E’s progress as well on Knuffle Bunny, but she wants me to wait until the face is complete for the big reveal. I feel the same way about Lulu – she has legs and hands and half a face now so she’s looking a little bit strange herself. Once we finish our first storybook characters we’re going to make their other halves – Trixie and Bingo. Then we’ll find a backing material, stitch them up, stuff them and put them into our secret toy making bin for the holidays. Seems a bit ambitious for February? Not if we keep picking book characters with red tutu’s and polka dot boots.
