Little Ted

Good morning all. I am beginning today's post by telling you about the cutest little Bear with a huge liking for Plum Pudding ( I think I may have been channelling myself really). But oh what a tummy ache he has!!!When my dear friend Sandy over at Cookies and Cream Craft commissioned me to create a special little pattern exclusively for her on line shop "Pudding Ted" was born. I think he is extremely cute and hope you like him too!
Sandy has kits to make him just as you see here. He is only available from Cookies and Cream Craft.

No Yoga for me today as I am still stiff and sore from my balletic efforts on Saturday :(
My lovely friend Gaye and I have had similar love affairs, mine lasted 9 years and hers 14 years. The objects of our affections were our beloved Staffy dogs. Sadly Gaye had to say goodbye to her gorgeous boy Gruffy just recently and I know how she feels. There ain't no love like "Staffy Love". So I decided to make her a little keepsake of Gruff.....
Yes I know it is not a "Staffy" but I have used a little poetic license and as Gaye loves vintage and blue I think she will love him all the same.
I am going back to my baby quilts and I am keeping one eye on the sky so I have plenty of time to hobble down to the line to get the washing in.
I wish you a lovely week.
Blessings Michelle xxx
