Softies for Mirabel 2012

This week I have been Stitching up some Softies for Mirabel. How are you all doing with yours?
If you haven't already, you can join up over here at Meet Me At Mikes

I decided to go a bit retro, using a book my Mum bought in the 70's or 80's. 
Book: Soft Toys to make for Children Edited by Alison Lowe Marshall Cavendish 1973-84 
From this book I'm making cats, bears, frogs, elephants and dolls.

I got started sewing cats and bears during the week, I'm finishing them off now, frogs are being cut out this afternoon and the dolls over the weekend. With any luck they all should be done by the end of next week when I would like to start my Christmas sewing.
I have a couple of weeks more off before uni starts again. This time off has been such a wonderful thing I cannot even tell you how much it has helped me to relax and do what I wanted to each day!
