the cutest little 'ouchie' soother ever

Claudia's deliciously, gorgeous godmother Miranda gave her this sweet 'bump bunny' for her first birthday. it actually holds a small plastic cube which you freeze and then place inside the bunny. it is so cute and really cures the 'sads' very quickly. it was perfect the other day when she picked up that nasty old bee and had a sore finger. thanks Mir, you are THE BEST %^_^%

it is great for those frequent bumps to the head

it is so soft and pretty, can you see the space for the cube?

i would also like to introduce you to someone... Claudia named this one and lili and i are not sure if it is a girl or a boy. it has a girls body but the face of a boy, what do you think? anyhow the words that came out of Claudia's mouth when i said 'what is this bears name?' were 'Maynard bloop'. so without further adieu here is....

MAYNARD BLOOP

Boy or girl? what do you think? perhaps it is a shim... in any case i made it. i actually wanted to sew him with the machine, you know inside out sort of thing but i got too scared and just sewed him by hand. i need help with all this stuff. on my long holiday i will do some patterns from my softies book and i will learn heaps i am sure.

big sloppy kisses to all, especially you miranda!! mmmmwwwwaaaaahhh

Hi Rosey,
Thanks for popping by and saying 'Hi' on my 100th post giveaway. I've just enjoyed reading through your posts and have to say 'what a great idea that ice cube holder is'. Never seen one of them before but wish I had of had one of those when my girls were younger....hhmm come to think of it, they'd probably still like the ouch bunny at 11 & 14.
Hugs,
Kerryanne

It's a boy. I can tell. He might have a touch of the queer eye wearing that flowery outfit, but i say Maynard is a dude.

Hello gorgeous girl, wow you have been busy...putting me to shame!! Love the bear and love the ice bunny...I need one of those...really truly I do. i will do you a deal, in exchange for your glittering company and some tasty home baked treats i shall show you how super easy it is to sew with a machine...hand embroidery is great and your hand stitching looks wonderful, but you can get more done with the machine??? So what do you say, wanta play on the holidays??? Kiss Noises Linda Lilly Cottage. ( I think bearby is a shim or a him because any decent girl would have a flower in her hair, right??) moi

What's this about you not being able to sew?!?

I just left a comment because it sounded so good to be called "attractive, witty and friendly"! Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog recently! I love making new blog friends. I thought you could not sew?! This blog tells me otherwise...Love your softies! I truly suck at handstitching...
