I ran away from teaching to the country to grow veggies. There are also some chooks and a pair of troublesome goats who were so much trouble they had to go! My simple green life isn't always as simple or as green as I'd like...but I keep trying!

I can feel Winter coming on.

It is a sure sign that Winter is almost here...
There is a certain hum in the air...
the hum of the sewing machine in the sewing room that has laid dormant since last Winter.

The first creation.

Made with a certain young lad in mind.  It has a variety of textures and includes braid from his Great Grandma Gwen's sewing box.  The back is black and white spots coz all bubbies love to look at contrasting black and white. It has big eyes to stare into and it even rattles. 


  1. You clever thing you!

    But it's staring into my eyes....
    It says "take me to your leader".

    Hope it doesn't scare the little guy ;)

  2. Enjoy your sewing, it's great to have different hobbies for different times of the year. Winter and Summer are jewelry making times for me as seems there is less to do in the garden. I love your creation, a colorful fellow!

  3. Oh that is going to make some little bub very happy :)

  4. You're obviously one of those people who can make the most of any season - even Winter. Thank goodness you've removed that countdown to winter from your header. It was making me very cranky! :)

  5. sometimes i feel like we are some kinda weird wave length

  6. Verrrryy nice! A unique creation full of sensory delights made all the more special with the braid.

    Winter is definitely was SO cold today!! :)

  7. Grandma knows that the certain young lad will just love your latest creation. You are very creative Hazel.

  8. Do tell us what its named!

  9. cute. Is it a friend of Timmy?

  10. But is it machine-washable?? He's bound to puke on it at some stage, however fine it may be. :)

  11. Rose, I will leave it up to the giftee to name it.
    Mark, Of course it is washable...but Jimmy's grandma says he never pukes...ever.
    VG - the countdown is back..I am determined, at some time in the near future to make you encourage all the seasons...even Winter!

  12. Brrrrr and grrrrr. Not a chance.
