Mr. M's been crafty lately, too. When I found this great book
at Barnes and Noble, he was just on the other side of the shelf, browsing for himself.

And when he stumbled across this gem, I had a feeling our library was about to expand.

So, Mr. M has begun his great sewing adventures. Our first new friend is Sniffles the Elephant. He seemed to be really easy to make (I don't know for sure, I didn't help). But Mr. M has never sewn more than a button, and finished in 3 evenings. Here's how it all came together:


  1. OMG he's so CUTE! :) I love him!

  2. He is just gorgeous. Look forward to seeing the baby blanket as well. It sounds so sweet. Enjoyed your F5 Name Game. Good to get some more ideas for sites to visit.

  3. So cute!! I love the pictures showing his progression.

    Sniffles is incredibly cute. Well done!

  5. I want to marry your husband when you are done with him.

    What, you say? no plans for that?

    drats! foiled again!


"So keep fightin' for freedom and justice, beloveds, but don't you forget to have fun doin' it. Lord, let your laughter ring forth. Be outrageous, ridicule the fraidy-cats, rejoice in all the oddities that freedom can produce. And when you get through kickin' ass and celebratin' the sheer joy of a good fight, be sure to tell those who come after how much fun it was."
