Thank you to everyone who purchased a Bill the Pineapple pattern this year – I was able to donate over $1330 to the charity Support Education Togo. That is amazing! So many children in Togo, Africa will benefit from your support.
Want to learn more about the charity? Visit SupportEducationTogo.org and learn how your money is going towards building schools so more children have the opportunity to be educated in a safe environment. My father started the charity himself, so I know it is one that can be trusted and ALL the money donated goes to help the students in Togo.
I would like to introduce to you my latest pattern release: Tod and Dot the bears! Named by my husband, Tod is the tall one and Dot is the round one.
I started off making Tod (who was then nameless), but then I felt he needed a little tubby friend. My hubby then came up with the names Tod and Dot and I knew right away that it was the perfect fit.
I will admit, these two have been sitting on my desk for some time now because life has made their release a little more delayed than usual, but they have been keeping us company, watching our every move. Every once in a while my husband or I will randomly say “Hello Tod and Dot!” when we notice them staring. They make us smile!
This week I had a little fun with some of my little Flora bunnies and my camera – I made a stop motion video! I still need some practice with my technique, but I think it turned out pretty cute. The matching music was made by my husband – I just love it!
I might be making more of these in the future, so keep an eye out.
