You may have guessed I'm on holidays

This productivity will dry up next week as I am back to work.
These have been such fun projects, they are samples for the shop.
The patterns are by Annie Smith of Country Keepsakes and there are about 5 different hand puppet patterns all with 2 different puppets in each pattern.
Lorraine has all the patterns along with some of Annie's dolls patters which are so very cute.


My 2 had hand puppets and loved playing with them Gemma instantly said when she saw these were are Sooty and Sweep.
They are in a box in the roof waiting patiently for grandchildren LOL.
Shame there isn't more creative childrens play and less TV and computer games.
This is Victor and the other puppet in the pattern is Frankie(Frankenstein).


Meet Marmalade she has Chuckles the clown with her.

The baby is growing and we are having weekly visits with my girls who are not that fond of other dogs.

Sooty and Sweep are adorable! My kids loved hand puppets when they were young. Glad to hear you are enjoying your holidays and finding plenty of time for being creative.

Honey is adorable! Your daughter is lovely too, of course, but I'm more of a doggie person. 8)

Take care,

Looks like you've had fun with the puppets - your baby, the hairy one is SOOOOOO cute and I'm not that fond of dogs myself.
