No monkey business...

...but plenty of funny bunnies, pretty kitties and brazen bears.

My little softie buddies are coming along - they are all made and stuffed - but so far remain faceless and nameless. They're also not completely dressed - I've ties, scarves, hair and other bits and pieces to make and appliqué onto the bodies.

They're all destined for different homes, except for the two bears, who are going to my nephews for their birthdays in September. I think I'll probably have finished them by then!

The bunny (big ears) is going to baby Jack, who is around two months old, and one of the kitties is going to Molly, who is about three weeks old. Romy will get the second kitty. She'll be beside herself when she sees them all - I'm not letting her touch them, as I want them to go their new homes clean! No sticky lolly fingers thanks very much :)

These have been quite fun to make, but I'm also looking forward to starting on the next quilty project. I think it'll have to be the Christmas table runners I was going to make for last Christmas!

They're very cute Lily. Romily will be excited when she sees them. I hope you can preserve them for gift giving.

Lily they are gorgeous and, yes, no sticky fingers or chocolate faces near them yet. On that subject just be warned that the sticky fingers and choc lips never end. Alex is still always covered in Nutella.

What cute little guys! I can hardly wait to see them when they are finished. Their new "parents" will love them!
