... onto this weeks was my turn to host the re union crafty day (this involves some friends from way back, work etc some nice lunch and some crafting) last year we made pillowcase dresses for here
so after seeing this we decided to have a go at making some little toys to give to the school run 2014 charity... we made foxes, owls and little doxie dogs... nice designs and quick to make. The fox toy is based on this idea and the owl is adapted from the same tutorial.
The dog is based on this tutorial but I simplified it a bit so we could make a few...
A good day was had by all with lots of catching up,stitching and stuffing and plenty of tea quaffing :) If you fancy making a toy for this brilliant charity or want to know more then take a peek over here

have a lovely week x x x x
