I've been slowly plugging away at my En Provence blocks, and being distracted by requests for more insulin pump bands, fixing stuffed animals, making Valentines placemats and sewing with my grandson!
Alex and I have been working on and off on his dinosaur for almost a year now. I only worked on it when he could help and stopped when he lost attention. He has learned how to use a pattern, cut it out, sew on the machine, do the running stitch and the whip stitch and stuff the pieces. This weekend was the final stuffing and adding the details, such as the spots!
Voila! Snaggles is finished!
He sewed every one of these spots himself! It is wonderful to see his patience grow and learn to problem-solve without getting frustrated like he did in the beginning.
He is so proud of himself! (Brr, he makes me cold just looking at him! This is one hot-blooded kid). He is wearing his new insulin pump band as well. Love this kid!
Pattern for the dinosaur is Menagerie by Lier at ikatbag.comikatbag.com. 19 stuffies from one basic pattern - it is full of ideas and very well-written.
Tomorrow has been declared a snow day - good thing, because I can't find my car!
