In addition to the lion I made for my 2-year-old niece, I made a lemur for my 4-year-old niece, after being informed that she is way into Zoboomafoo. He was quite a hit, and was taken to bed with said niece most nights of my Thanksgiving visit. The lemur is weathering the shorty beat-down better than the lion, who lost the fuzz at the end of his tail within an hour.

I'm baaaaack!

After a ridiculously long hiatus, filled with shoulder surgery, recovery, a new job, a profound lack of motivation, and the death of a camera, I now have some new things to share. I'll parcel them out over the next few weeks. Wouldn't want anyone to go into shock or anything.

So first up -- a pride of lions! I made a lion for my niece (from a Roxycraft pattern -- what would I do without her patterns), and then my husband informed me that he absolutely had to have one, and then just for good measure I made one for a friend whose sister is having a baby. I think they're pretty cute, despite the fact that my embroidery skills leave a lot to be desired.
