Softie swap continues

Today I received my softie swap! It’s not that I was surprised that my partner is Tzik as my daughter pulled names out of a bowl to make partners and I arranged the swap, but I didn’t have a clue what she was going to make and boy did she surprise me.
It arrived by special delivery, she came over with the kids, a jar of freshly baked home made health cookies and this:

Accompanied by this fabulous card, it’s not stamped, it’s drawn by hand, well copied from somewhere but as she says one has to know how to copy properly, which is true, this one is perfectly done and embellished.

Inside the box I found not one but a pair of softies!

This gorgeous creature, my kids call Harry, all dressed up with a tie and all.

And his companion my kids call Hermione, all fancy with her pearl necklace

We decided they were going to be door keepers, Harry is watching our front door while Hermione will watch each bedroom door for a week. The kids originally suggested that I sew a few more for each bedroom door but very quickly I told them this wasn’t going to happen, so Hermione is going to travel from door to door.

On top of all this, I also received this gorgeous Amy Butler fabric which I already have plans for.

This is what I call a good day! What a way to spend one's Saturday morning and this is the cutest softie of them all, her 11 months old son and his 6 teeth.
