Someone had other ideas about where the flowers should go.

Washi tape is becoming my duct tape. It saves the day in all sorts of sticky situations.

not our puppy

Added on by Janine.

At this weekend's Market Collective, I made friends with this cute little vintage puppy. I seemed to be more taken with it than Finley was, so the puppy stayed behind. (But we brought home the fabric tray.)

marc boutavant

Added on by Janine.

French illustrator Marc Boutavant's books are part of our daily routine. Mouk's adventures around the world and Laura Lueck's For Just One Day are favourite bedtime books. These Boutavant pull-toys look ready for some pretty colourful daytime adventures though!

elephant

Added on by Janine.

One evening last month, I made this elephant softie. He looks simple enough and required just a few hours from sketching out a pattern to stitching on his button eyes. Of course if I consider how long I'd been saving the fabric and that I had intended on sewing a little animal for Finley when he was first born... then this elephant took just over two years.
