Birthday Book

Today is my Birthday and in way of a celebration I have bought myself this lovely book shown above.  I did see it at the Country Living Spring Fair but waited to purchase it from an on line book store 'Wordery' and found it to be cheaper than Amazon even with the added postage.

I can't wait to have a go at making some of these little felt animals and am looking forward to making the clothes especially.  I can see my Liberty fabrics being put to good use here!  I am waiting delivery of some wool felt and then I will be able to make a start.

My blog anniversary was on the 1st March.  I have been blogging for eight years now.  Time flies when you're having fun!


  1. Oh WOW! Happy Birthday, have a great day and what a splendid book

  3. I've just had another look and I've realised its actually a mouse in the duffle coat, you'd think I could tell the difference by now! ;)

  4. I love the little animals and look forward to seeing the ones you make. Wishing you a very Happy Birthday, have fun:)

  5. First, my very best wishes on your birthday. Next, happy 8th blog-aversary. It has meant a great deal to me to have met you through your blog. You add so much to my life.
    And lastly, this little book is absolutely charming. I had a look at it via Amazon and am surely tempted. The photos are so well done. The instructions so complete. I may be tempted to get it myself. And I too can't wait to meet the critters you create.
    all my best today and in your new year ahead.

  6. Happy Birthday...and 8 years blogging! That's quite an achievement.
    Hope the felt arrives soon, I'd be itching to get stitching those cuties.xx

  7. Happy birthday Simone - I hope you're having a nice day! I bought that book a few months ago, although haven't made anything from it yet. The main purpose for me was the clothing - thinking I might be able to adapt some of it for my bears, although they (the clothes) would have to be a bit bigger. I look forward to seeing your achievements xx

  8. Happy Birthday, Simone!! I just saw your post before going to bed!! Hope you have had a lovely day! And happy blogiversary too!! I cannot wait to see what you create when your wool felt arrives! xx

  9. So much celebration over here in the Linden Grove! Many congratulations all around!
    Let us know how the wee critters turn out. xo

  10. Happy, happy birthday Simone.
    Enjoy your special day.
