Toy Drop for Christmas 2009

Apologies for the long lapse in blogging but the reasons have been two fold - firstly work and real life have severely interrupted my crafting and blogging time, with a very busy worklife as well as another module for my MSc, and secondly - because a lot of the crafting I have actually got around to making has been for Christmas gifts and I don't want to spoil the surprise for the recipients before the big day. Therefore I shall be attempting to blog a little more in the new year!

Anyway, today has been the day for the big co-ordinated Christmas Drop for the Toy Society and I have rustled up a couple of toys to join in. I had so much fun dropping BeeJay that I just had to do it again. For those of you that haven't heard of the Toy Society, it is well worth taking a look at and getting involved with 'random acts of craft'.

Bertie was the first drop - which took place at Serpentine Green Shopping centre in Peterborough on the 19th at1.30pm:

He is a simple felt 'funny', very cute and simple to make.
He was left in a seating area in the food hall near a children's carousel so I hope he found a good home.

Emily was left outside Clarks Shoe shop, also in Serpentine Green Shopping centre (it seemed the best bet as it was inside and therefore warm!!)
She is made out of some of the leftover scraps from my fabric elephants:


That is Paul's leg you can see on the right - as we tried to not look suspicious taking the photos!

I really hope that they both go to good homes and that someone gets a lot of joy out of finding them. It almost feels like being Santa - and leaving gifts under the Christmas tree. What a wonderful time of the year this is!
