Look at our little Lilly

Sept2709_0020ew

Isn't she about as cute as it gets? I mean seriously.....don't you just want to squeeze her? ME, TOO!

Not to long ago, while checking out one of my favorite crafty blogs, I noticed that Jessica, from Happy Together, had sent out a call for test sewers (is that how you spell it? the same as a sewer???? really?).

Being that I LOVE to sew, which has nothing to do with stinky sewers, by the way, I quickly raised my hand, and hoped to be chosen. A few days later, I was actually FLOORED when I got an email from Jessica letting me know that I was one of the lucky few to get the great opportunity to test drive her Octopus pattern.

As it so happened, I had some fuchsia fleece lying around, leftover from a jumper I had made for Sugar over a year ago. The sweet berry flannel I was currently using to make her little tote matched it perfectly, so it was quickly decided that Sugar Bear needed a new little friend.

The pattern is easy to follow, and the outcome is so very darling. Sugar Bear helped me along the way, and had the final say on the bow placement.

I think she has an eye for stuff like that. :) She was more than delighted to let me grab a few snaps of her and Lilly the Octopus.

Choosing a name was a bit of a bumpy ride though. Sugar's first inclination was to call her "Strawberry", but quickly changed her mind, leaning more towards "Fluffy!" That name lasted for about 10 minutes, until she delightfully announced, "I think she looks more like a Lilly. Don't you, Mama?"

And Lilly it was.....and still is. She is WELL loved, that little octopus.

Sugar Bear was quite happy to pose with her new tote and Lilly, but for some reason she was a bit too excited to hold still. I suppose all the pretty little cuteness was too much for a little girl to handle. ♥ Who can blame her?

Today, Lilly had the distinct honor to accompany Sugar Bear to daycare/preschool. She was the talk of the town, and when I stopped by to gather my girl, it was reported that Sugar had offered her mama's abilities to SEVERAL of her little friends. It seems everyone wanted an Octopus of their very own, and Sugar was more than happy to tell them that "her mama would make them one!"

Looks like I better get hoppin'! Thank you soooooooooooooo much, Jessica, for giving me the honor of testing your pattern. This little project is such a treat.

I'm here, I'm reading, Im sad you've been low. I have yet to get to the heavy stuff you've mentioned but I will. I'm so sorry I've been absent for so long. So sorry about your friends husband, that is so so awful.
The Kitty project is wonderful. Sugarbear looks adorable with her fab octopus and I love the ice cream captures. HUgs. And again so sorry I have not been here for you, when you have so wonderfully been there for me. x
