Your robots look positively chuffed with themselves!
And I already have a love affair with your dog and her puppies. I've been dreaming of them ever since I first saw them. They've been telepathically telling me that they want to come live in my studio......

CalicoDaisy said...

Sweet. Your patchwork softies are so pretty, and even the robot looks snuggly. -- Michele

Woohoo! What cute puppies and robots. Cherrie

Tyler and Cassidy said...

These are to die for! My little boy will love to play with those little dogs, and his daddy might love it more.

NebraskaNative said...

The new patterns are brilliant! Poppy & her pups could be a potentially great "fix" for those who get sneezy around the live, four-legged, barking kind. My little boys are ga-ga for dogs and yes, allergic to them! Perhaps this is the answer for the short run. Wishing you well with the newest additions to your line. Cheers-

Hoppo Bumpo said...

Your new patterns are fab - the robots are so much fun and Poppy and the pups are really cute. Edward (or his alter-ego Elsie) was such a delight to make, that I'd love be counted in for your draw!
