I sometimes feel a little strange putting a title on these posts, does anyone even read the title? I know I don't, especially if there's a nice image leading my eyes away from it.

I finally finished this wip for a little lady's birthday. He (or she - it's up to birthday girl) still needs a bed and quilt for sleeping of course so there is still some more work to be done.

The original intention was for it to be a sleepy dog with big floppy ears but it kinda looks like a dog crossed with a bunny. A donny? Anyway, I think I'll let birthday girl decide what it is. Incidently, this is my first creation made from scratch. Yeah, I know, it's only taken me a year to get around to not using someone else's pattern for presents.

Oooops... I tripped and my credit card fell out of my purse and landed on some nice things. Like these fabrics from Quilt Fabric Delights;

this tape, it's as cute as a row of toys;

plus a subscription to Marie Claire Idees. It's in French but that doesn't matter because the images in it are so divine, and so inspiring. I picked up the last issue when we were in Nice and have been obsessing over it since. I can't find it anywhere in Brisbane so of course I had to subscribe (you see when credit card goes wandering there has to be justifications).

I'm ending with this photo of a little doll (aka birthday girl) I hung out with at the Andy Warhol retrospective at GOMA. She picked the colour combination herself and I have to say I don't think I could have done a better job!

You made him?! That is great. My little brother used to have a special bear called blue bear. Once he left him behind at a motel when we were on vacation and the housekeeper mailed him back to us.
