It was a very busy year. I hope I will find more time to write, draw and make videos for my blog again next year.
Thank you, everyone, for reading my articles and giving feedback in e-mails and comments!
Mila and I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Since I was in a massive DIY mood lately, Mila may now be the owner of the world’s largest stuffed toy for dogs. It was intended to kind of look like a Bull Terrier, but I did not really use any pattern, just started cutting fabric and sewing … and it turned out to look more like those Poke-thingies everyone is chasing on their smartphones currently. So, please don’t judge me for the looks. 🙂
Regardless, Mila really LOVES her new pal, and plays with him every day. This is particularly funny, because in general she is not really interested in playing with any living animals at all – just the stuffed ones. I own a life-sized stuffed tiger hubby once gave to me as a gift. And she just loved to play with it to the point I became afraid that she will destroy it one day. So, I tried to craft a replacement especially for her, double layered, extra heavy stitching … ready for some rough play. And a toy she can call her own.
Now, didn’t that work out really well … 🙂
It’s your birthday today and we’re looking back at three years full of love and fun. You make every day a little brighter. Hope to have you around for lots of years to come, Mila! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, BABY GIRL!
