I finished my first Plush You Submission. I might make some additions/tweaks as time goes on, but for now here's the sneak peek- what could it be?
Also I'm working on a baby blanket for a friend of mine... I decided to teach myself how to make granny squares, I'm a little over half way done. Each square is 4x4. This has been great fun to make because you can do it anywhere, on the bus, in front of the TV, at lunch... I've found it super relaxing and I'm thinking of making one as an xmas present maybe with a different pattern for someone special.

Anna of pink-orange-red on flickr organized Little Plush visitor. I signed up to do the little swap which consisted of sending your favorite plush overseas, receive a plush from your partner and take pictures of it around your town, then make a scrapbook of the plushies adventures, collect some souvenirs and goodies and send everything back to it's owner.
I loved doing this so much that I'm thinking of making a few of my little plush mushrooms and holding a give-away of sorts that kind of runs along this theme... You get a little mushroom and in return, you take pictures of the mushroom around where you live and post them on flickr. What do you guys think? Would there be interest in this?
Anyway, Lilly the little mushroom really enjoyed it's stay in Gdansk Poland. Thank you Anna!
Jennifer Strunge of Cottonmonster made this Bottomfeeder for me. She makes all sorts of terrific plushies, if you haven't checked them out- you should! Here's her etsy and blog!
I'm lucky because I own a few of hers already- a pentapod, little monster, eye and now the bottomfeeder. I named him Bruce :) He's definitely the biggest plushie in my entire plush collection. I have a thing for really tiny plush or really huge plush! I started collecting smaller plush now because... well I've run out of room... but I couldn't resist this guy.
On my wish list is one of her big monsters... I really heart this guy
Keep up the great work Jennifer!
