a huge (and long overdue) thank you goes out to heather at for another mention on her website. i was so shocked to see the lilac bunny she purchased a few weeks ago pop up! and i'm beyond thrilled that it will part of her new nursery! what great news- a baby dooce!

and a huge thank you to everyone who purchased a little animal of their own (or two, or three.....) rest assured, i am stitching like mad to get all of the orders completed and they will be in the mail well in time for the holiday deadlines. thank you, thank you, thank you!!

a little while back i was asked to submit a snowy owl and an elephant for possible inclusion to glow magazine's holiday gift guide. well, i'm happy to say that they used my animals! they are on pages 88 and 89 in the december issue, should you be in canada and feel like taking a peek.

it is through her blog that i learned of doug rhodehamel and his spore project. now i must go off and turn many a paper bag into mushrooms for planting. fun!

i love frankie magazine. it's sort of hard to find here. but recently when i wasn't feeling well, david came home with the july/august issue for me. so sweet and thoughtful!
it has an article and pull-out poster by rob ryan! whoohoo!
