Keyfob Friday - squirrel

Find yourself mourning the end of Friday fiction? If so, I bring you felt fob Friday!

Having given so many keyrings away, the banister of my stairs (to either end of which a length of string is tied for the hanging of keyrings) is looking ... rather like a boring banister, so I thought I'd better make some more.

This little chap is a tiny squirrel, just shy of 7cm tall.

Whedon hoops and a teddy bear

Well hello there, I can't believe it has been over 2 weeks since my last post. Did you miss me?

Yesterday at work I suddenly had the biggest hankering to watch Firefly's Objects in Space. Jubal Early gets all the best lines in that episode. So I went home and made this (and watched it, of course). As usual, the colours don't come out very clearly so the writing isn't as legible as in real life.

The little man loved fire.

So, in other news I have been making a teddy bear, although I was underwhelmed with the pattern. This little fella has his tie and collar and is all ready to go to work,

Bestest buddies.

And *finally*, for those who didn't already see it - Spike. I do love Spike.

"I do remember what I said. The promise. To protect her. If I'd done that ... even if I didn't make it, you wouldn't've had to jump. I want you to know I *did* save you. Not when it counted, of course. But after that. Every night after that. I'd see it all again, do something different. Faster or more clever, you know? Dozens of times, lots of different ways ...Every night I save you."

Sherlock Kindle cover

I decided for this one to make an elasticated top to the kindle cover, I am not sure if I like it or not. Anyway, here he is.

"I consider that a man's brain originally is like a little empty attic, and you have to stock it with such furniture as you choose."
