Too cute! I didn't realise she had even been watching me make my one. I think she did a fab job! She went on to make about 6 of them which are now on her bedroom wall. Mr 7 was also busy making things - but his makes were Lego. He is obsessed with Titanic and made a great selection of Titanics and icebergs!! I must get a photo of them.
I also finished my cat from Annaboo's CAL! I'm so happy with him - I will definitely be making more now that I know it's not as hard as I thought it would be. I overstuffed his poor head a bit, but hey, he's still cute.
My biggest bargain last weekend was these pretty sneakers for less than $10. I bought them at a children's shop as I have ridiculously small feet. The lady in the shop asked me "how old is she" presuming they were for my daughter. I replied that she was quite old, 41 in fact!! Oh well, at least my feet feel young.
