Nova Scotia stylie

On our recent holiday to our home-away-from-home, I thought I would take a pic of some cushions I made for the 'boys' room - a cheery little nautical number and a lighthouse typical of a Maritime shore. I rather fancy a series of natty nautical niceties...  but, as usual, too much to do, too little time.

Cat in a Bag

So, I thought... what would a little girl like for her Birthday?  A bag perhaps?
 But maybe that's a tad dull... how about a little pocket.... with a mouse in.  And how about a little cat to hide in the bag and leap out on the unsuspecting mouse?  Good idea.  It all went swimmingly until it came to the cat's facial features - however, young Eleanor is reportedly delighted with the mad-scary-eyed-pig-cat - children can be so forgiving :)
