I had to show you these little ‘bear rug’ coasters I bought from Dandyrions as they are sooooo gorgeous and I decided to feature them as this week’s Saturday Selection.
I had to have the white one for my workroom, the brown and cinnamon ones for the lounge and an extra one as a gift for a bear-loving friend. Great for Christmas pressies plus take a look at her fox friendly t-shirts and jumpers. Go on, you know you’re intrigued.
Normally, for my Saturday Selection, I feature an item that somebody has made but this Saturday I wanted to feature a person who has not only made an item but has concocted a whole life story around it which has captivated lots of readers on her blog. I have featured Jodie of RicRac on here before https://thetialys.wordpress.com/2009/09/28/ric-rac/ as she is the incredibly talented creator of the selvedge dress (among other such wonders) but she also makes soft toys, or plushies, and then makes the pattern available so that us lesser mortals can try to emulate her.
At the moment, Jodie is writing a story around her new character Baxter, a hedgehog with a tiny little hole inside of him. The writing is good but Jodie’s photographs of Baxter with simple but oh so effective illustrations and props, really make this the hedgehog soap opera of the year!! You have got to go and catch up with Baxter and see whether his story has a happy ending. If it doesn’t, I don’t know what I’m going to do!! http://www.vintagericrac.blogspot.com/
