Mid-week Blues - or should that be Greens?

OK, it's cold. Even here in sub-tropical Brisbane it does get cold on occasions. The top temperature predicted is 17 degrees Celsius (around 63 degrees Fahrenheit). And it's windy - but at least the sun is out.

All my plans to get on to making green items for Fede's colour challenge have flown out the window, as I completed the cuddly toys to send to my wounded little grandson and his big sister in Sydney.

I have had at the back of my mind for some time to make a toy from a quilt top image I had created in a workshop a couple of months back. Hidden away in my Stash Cupboard (wouldn't you love to see it?) was a stack of Liberty prints and I decided it was time to break them out. They worked perfectly for my project and with the high thread count the toy should hold together reasonably well.

Well, it does have some green in it...

... but it tends to get lost among all the other colours!

It was love at first sight.

So I packed them in a box and hopefully they will reach their new home in a day or two.

And now back to the Green drawing board.

Just gorgeous Robyn - your grandchildren will be so excited! I would love to see your stash. Mine is growing too fast - I have many UFO's (Un-Finished Objects) at the moment but I can't resist adding to the stash.

Aaaawww - that elephant is fabulous!!! I really really love the way you combine your fabrics. And yes, I would love to see your fabric stash.... I think I would be "green" with envy (hee hee)

My goodness Robyn, you are just so clever. These are absolutely beautiful. I love how you've bandaged up Mr Magoo's arm. Sooooo cute :)
