So Cute!

A friend of mine crochets and has invented these cute little things

She has called them Bootle-Floofs and sells them to loving homes

They come in all sorts of colours and, if you're interested, you can visit her site and see some more of her stuff...


A very talented lady!

Bags of Fabric!

Here is the first thing I made out of the fabric I showed you a couple of days ago... the stuff I wasn't too sure what to do with as the pattern was not really me and a bit too jazzy.

Actually I did like this pattern so have made it for someone as a present.

Cacti and pineapples... not so sure so will probably try to give that one away.

Parrots and watermelons the same... I enjoyed the process but don't want the product.

Don't you just love new fabric? 

This was completely out of the blue for my birthday.
Two packs of what the patchwork community call 'fat quarters' although I have no idea why (not a patch-worker).

These are certainly quirky and set your mind racing on what you can do with them... especially the ones that are not quite me.

Woodland creatures I knew exactly what to do with but parrots  and pineapples were more of a challenge. Cacti and watermelons?

Stay tuned to find out..!

The End of it All

This is the official end of the cutsie drawings sporting stick on moustaches, bows, ties and hats (see many previous blogs)

Undoubted winner of the Best-Dressed-Lighthouse competition 2017

If your heart feels constricted... loosen your tie!

Moving on...

Nearly at the end

This has been a long cute trail of pics adorned with accessories, but we are nearly at the end

That hat will never stay on at that altitude!

A very smart book but a painful moustache accident waiting to happen when the book is closed.

Snoozing T shirt

An apple for the teacher? He doesn't look very happy about the idea.

The page full.
Next blog really IS the end of these drawings - I promise!

More ties, moustaches, hats and bows

Here are the next little guys and gals for your delectation...

That tie is going to get so drippy with watermelon juice.

Cheese that may have been in a punch up.

The page full...

And what appears to be a school-girl crab?

Sorry for the Delay!

Had to start back at work and it was really hectic so everything else has taken a back seat!

Friendly submarines...

A snail who appears to be late for a business meeting...

and I don't think I'd like to put a toothbrush in my mouth if it's wearing a hat! Maybe that's self-preservation for the toothbrush!

More to come...

The next Kawaii and their accessories

Here are the next few in the set of drawings and their accoutrements

Well dressed cherries, one of whom seems to be afraid of heights... or maybe just afraid of the possible effects of the ground as it comes to meet him if he falls.

Does anyone ever give their spoons adequate opportunity to sunbathe?

And is this a 'Go-Com-Pear' ???? (Groan!)

Sheep, Bow, Leaf

Here are the next willing victims to get a makeover sticker style

I debated long and hard between a moustache and a bow- surprising how something so simple can alter the appearance of gender and attitude.

A bow with a bow : )

And a leaf surprised by the sudden appearance of Autumn!

Kawaii characters with their Accesories

Here are some more little cuties

Well-dressed art implements...

A car off to work (although he'll have to drive very slowly to keep his hat on!).

Sad little cup...I expect he has to have coffee in him instead of hot chocolate, that would make me sad too.

And rabbit,,, the only drawing I actively dislike.

And the page of them altogether.
