I had an inkling that Ermmikins was looking a touch cat-like.
One day I will stitch a Kittikins but for now I think I've made him what he was supposed to be...

...a Foxikins.
What do you think? Is he quite there yet?

Yep, Ermmikins was trying to be a little fox with a bushy tail and little white cheeks... but the cheeks were all wrong, definitely more blushes or whiskers. I'm hoping these are much more fox-like. I've also been trying different scented stuffings so he smells like orange and honey.

I'll be listing him in the little shop later if anyone would like a sniff!

Head in the Clouds

First of all, I have to say thank for all your help with Ermmikins
I've been playing around with and he is almost there and I think I have a completely new 'ikins' too, all because of you! I will definitely be asking for your help in future :)

As much as I love a new animal friends I thought it was about time for a new Bunnikins and here he is...
Head in the Clouds Bunnikin

He is probably the most thoughtful one of the family, deep in a day dream. 
But that's not the only reason he is called 'Head in the Clouds' for if you turn him around...

...a little fluffy cloud and a peek of sunshine!

He is in the Little Shop along with all my little Xmas stitches. I haven't really made anything new, just the same little cuties as last year. Its hard to think Christmas when it still looks like so bright outside, the downside to moving country has been missing Autumn. I do have some ideas for the Snowbunnies, but I better be quick...

I'll be back on Monday with the new Ermmikins

A little Someone I've been working on for a while. 
Something's not quite right...

He sits in the corner. 
I stare at him, he stares at me.
Something's not quite there...

I try to draw him while pretending I can't see him.
He doesn't look like I think he does but only in a little way.
Something I can't put my finger on...

When you see him with his friends, you get more of an inkling of what he may be,
But on his own not quite...
Something's just not right.

Wed(nesday): Made for Maids

My first wedding craft... tiny bouquets to ask "will you be my bridesmaid?"

Made from tiny paper flowers, fabric and ribbon tied to a sweet little blossom notecard... I got the idea from here.

I wrapped them up in lots of tissue layers and sent them on their way...
...and had lovely Yes's in return :-)

Happy Wednesdays
