Round Two: Creature Cantina

We've finished our second round of stuffed creatures in anticipation of Auntie Andrea's visit from Pasadena. Max designed the green guy which he named "Needle." Apparently he scanned around, while trying to decide upon his creature's name, and settled his eyes upon one of many sewing notions on the dining room table. Needle was born. Jack's is the black spider with four eyes, aptly named "Web." The first round were a total hit with my parents, as well as Cabel and Nicole. The boys were very excited to give them, after many long conversations about which one to give to whom. Just before Max handed his to Cabel and Nicole, he gave it a big hug and said quietly, "I'm gonna miss you, guy." I felt terrible and realized that, um, maybe we need to make a few for us to keep. Duh. That's next on the agenda.

OK, that's it. I'm just going to have to copy you. Your little creatures are the coolest! That's sweet how your kids are getting attached to them. Awwww....

You place is turning into a regular softie factory! Have you ever heard of the Month of Softies project?? I've been wanting to join in for months -- you should look into it!

Thank you for Needle and Web! They will be at home, and in comfort, with the many pillows on my bed in my office. Now, when I am working at the computer I can see the two critters crafted with love staring at me with all six eyes. They not only will remind me of my beloved nephews, but also inspire me to do something crafty. Thanks again. They're great!
Love,
Auntie

These are so cute. They look a lot like the Monster Project that my family is doing right now.
