Work in progress

With Nature Girl being sick and taking naps the last two days I've had some time to work on some projects. Here are a few works in progress. Above is the start of a blue elephant softie for one of our nieces. She loves elephants and I thought I could make a softie from a drawing I did.

This is a snail doodle I stitched on muslin this weekend. I was looking for a doodle that would make a good icon for me as a blogger. I wanted something made by me and unique to me. So this snail stack is what I came up with. It's my husband, daughter and I. I think it will work. Of course I reserve the right to change my mind at a later date and create something new. As for the stitched snail stack it's being turned into a pillow and sent off to a niece who claimed it as her own.

Sick & Sacked Out

Nature Girl has been sick for two days. Here she is sound asleep on the couch this morning. We know she's sick because she never takes a nap anymore. She gave up napping at 2 1/2 years old and has never looked back. Now here she is sacked out. Poor thing! We've been watching PBS Kids for the last two days. When that gets boring we've been listening to audio books. We discovered a great new audio book by Amy Friedman called Tell Me a Story. It's very entertaining with music and different voices for each short story. I enjoyed listening to it too. It's helping to keep us both sane. I'm hoping Nature Girl is on the mend and will be back to her usual self tomorrow.
