Stuffed Pals

Ok, I probably have more switchable stuffed animals that anyone could possibly need. I keep saying that I going to embroider names on them. If I was really smart, I would have a number of the smaller ones in reserve so that family members could use them for baby presents. But these, so far, are allegedly mine. Which is one of the reasons I think Lev takes delight in moving them around.

Obviously Leo & Henri. Leo you can easily understand. It turns out that the hedgehog’s name derives from the German and means estate ruler. I guess with quills you rule?

Since the 4 Elements was finished – it needed to be replaced, right? In this case with Horrorflies by Noctiflora. I stitched the top half of the frame and will add in the bottom after the first release (and decision if this is something I really want to stitch). She has some wonderful carnivorous plants so it should be both fun and different.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
