I'm back in the land of the living, unlike this softie.

Dead lizard.
 I have been sick, and busy. You know how it is. I have been working on some lovely things, but can't share them with you because they are part of Chookyblue's Secret Santa Christmas Swap. (I'm actually really pleased with the gifts I made. Can't wait till Christmas to see how they are received!) I managed to send my parcels off to somewhere overseas today. (Yes, a bit late, but last week was a dreadful week! Couldn't go anywhere or do anything!) So, since I can't share the lovely things I thought I would share a gross thing that Miss 25 made last week. A dead lizard. You know you want one! Of course it is her own pattern. The dead lizard is the first in a series of softies that Miss 25 and Miss 19 are collaborating on. They have been working on a dragon, a cupcake, a snail and a pocket watch today. My sewing room and lounge room (which are connected)  have been filled with making and doing the past few days. It has been lovely as we each have been working on our respective projects. There is fabric everywhere, and beads, and embroidery threads, and three sewing machines set up on three tables. Hmm... perhaps I need to do a little tidy tomorrow morning. And then on to more sewing. (I have so many things I want to make at the moment!)

Exposed guts and ribs.

I am super jealous of your sewing! The closest I have been to sewing is when I rescued a bobbin from Daisy.

It's good to know that you are back to the land of the living ..... glad you are better .... I'm not sure about the lizard, but the other things sound okay. Can't wait to see the things that you sent away.

I think the lizard is absolutely adorable. Guts and all. Glad to hear you are feeling better.

Is the lizard going to be part of a "roadkill" range of stuffed toys? I think they may be best sellers!

Glad to hear you're on the mend. Being sick is the pits!

What a wonderful way to spend time with your girls. Poor lizard, glad your feeling better.

You are improved and that is the best thing to hear.

The lizard is great, smart design! It must be fun to be sewing with your kids. My daughter says she will never sew since I always do ;-(, which I said of becoming a teacher, I would never, since my mom was one. And what did I become... right, a teacher, so I keep my hopes up for my daughter sewing in another 15 years ;-)
