Well received!

I just thought I would share the other presents I made for my niece and nephew. Of course I have to show them actually playing with them! Here's my nephew right after opening the lion I made. It's a small one as you can tell but rather cutes. I took a pix of his body, he's perched here on top of the couch. And then of course his face. it's a wild one with crazy hair. But oh so cute you just want to cuddle him!

I know I made the giraffe for my niece but I
also made the Fairy tales at your finger tips finger puppets from crochet me. I added a frog b/c what fairy tale doesn't have some poor guy who was cursed or something? The frog I copied off a pix from one of my amigurumi books. I have my niece really likes them here she is running around the house with them. She likes the "ribbet" one the best even with his lopsided eyes. The whole embroidery their eyes and mouths wasn't my best work. I hope I'll get better as I practice. Not that the kid minds she just loves them. I have to say my heart swelled when I saw her actually playing with them.
anyways I must go finish the HP sweater I'm making for my other nephew. I just hope he likes it. I'm thinking if I have time I may make him a stuffed frog or something. We'll see.

Leah loves the puppets and keeps playing with them. Our house is a total mess, I've got some serious re-organizing to toys, argh.
