My Dear Daughter 3 has loved hedgehogs for years and if possible she would love to have one for a pet.
Unfortunately for her hedgehogs are not for keeping at home. We arranged a several attractive spots in our garden and since we live close to the woods we hope that one day a hedgehog like one of those spots to spend the winter time.
As you notice before I have a new hobby. (ooh nooo.....)
Teddy bear making.
Never knew it is so much fun. On etsy there are a lot of bear makers who sell patterns. I fell in love with this hedgehog . It would be a perfect gift for DD3.
Mostly I take pictures during the process. This time I was so busy that I didn't took pictures but I took little movies to show a friend. Maybe you like to see them too.
He became a bit bigger as I thought he would be. (especially his head)
But still very cute.
A happy gift for a happy girl.
After a long break I started a 365 days project again.
Finally I finished my quilt which is inspired by a quilt I saw in Austin TX.
In 2012 I made a lovely trip to Texas with my DH.
In an antique shop I saw a quilt which caught my attention immediately. Unfortunately it was too expensive to come home with me. So I decided to make my own version. On the same trip I bought the pink fabric and some fabrics for the blocks.
And now 4 years later I finished the quilt after it became an ufo for a long time.
I'm happy with it. It is a lap size quilt. Hand quilted and machine pieced.
