Turquoise and orange spotted toads
I finished a small group of Hug Me Sock Toads today. They all have polka dots.
I put them over in my Etsy toy shop.
This one is examining a beautiful lace-cap hydrangea that was a Mother’s Day gift years ago. It has gotten huge this year.
This is what they look like on the bottom. I sew signed, handmade tags made of coordinating quilting cotton to each one. I turn under the edges of my tags and stitch them on by hand to make them neat.
Phoebe assisted me with my photo props today, checking out our doll bench and playing with the straw hat I used to cart them outdoors.
She likes to participate in her own way. She’s been letting me pet her on the tail more lately. We’re hoping she’ll let us pet the rest of her eventually.
Bertie, below, is more confident. I think that even shows in her face.
