This is a good video of one of my favorite songs from the CD. It is so sweet☺
(If the video isn't showing above, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDua9AOIkAM )
I hope everyone is having a great Saturday. I will have some pics to share with you from the Bazaar stuff, probably Monday. Check out Laurie's wonderful plug she gave me on my finished Gooble doll on the Gabba Friends site. She is such a sweetie ☺

Nose-diving Deer (thanks to Blogger!)
What do you think I should sell these for? The larger ones are 3 inches tall, and the smaller counterparts are 1 1/2 inches tall. I plan on selling them in sets of one larger and two smaller. Would you pay $3 for a set? More... less?
What doesn't sell can be returned to me. Do you think these would sell on Etsy... should I put them up as a PIF?
Off to make a pot of chili to combat this chilly, blustery day!
Happy Thursday, Blog-Buddies

Hopefully, I can get The Office watched tonight while they are busy. If not, thank God for DVR ☺
Happy Thursday, blog-buds

Lastly, meet Bob, the baby penguin chick. He is different from his parents, as he is made of soft fleece fabric. He is also stuffed with polyfil and rice, and has a spotted felt scarf to keep his little body warm.
These sweet friends will also be in the shop when I get it updated. I wonder if someone will want to welcome one (or all) of them into their home for the holiday season?

This one is the beautiful, graceful white swan. She is made of high-quality vinyl, wool felt, and a bit of simple embroidery. I weighted their bottoms nicely with rice so that they will stand up well. I guesstimate them to stand at 10-12 inches tall.
I am toying around with the idea of making some baby-size versions of these, but definitely not out of vinyl. I think it add a certain charm and vintage feel to these large ones, but it would just be too hard to work with for a smaller size. Maybe fleece, instead ☺

You will see that my little fellow is squatter than the example on Owlishly. I think I can attribute this to a) I tend to stitch too tightly, and b) my yarn isn't worsted-weight. Anyway, I think I might end up making two more of these (using different size hooks) to have a little trio of multi-sized elfs.
This amazing ornament was found a few days ago in the Christmas stuff at Wal-Mart! It was the only one left, and I had to have it. The bird silhouette goes perfectly with the bird decals in my kitchen. I would like a few more of these and make a cluster. Best part: it is only $2!! Better go check out Wal-Mart. They have some really cool, vintagey ornaments. Can you say acorns and mushrooms?
More SQUISHY cuteness tomorrow...off to dance class with the kiddies ☺
ps...I apologize for the weird spacing and issues with my hyperlinks lately. Is anyone else having this problem with Blogger? The preview looks fine, but it is all wonky on my blog page :P
