Snug As A Bug In A Rug

Abby, Lily, Amelia, three sweet girls who met in preschool 3 years ago and formed a pretty strong friendship. Amelia moved to New Zealand several months ago. Not quite understanding exactly how far away NZ is, Abby sometimes asks if Amelia can come to certain parties, etc. Well, she is finally coming "home" for a visit and we are very excited to have a sleepover with Amelia and Lily this week!!! Amelia just turned 6 so we will celebrate that as well! We thought it would be fun to make each of the girls their own ladybugs with "ALA" embroidered on their bellies. ALA (which Abby pronounces Ayla) represents their initials and hopefully the girls will think of each other whenever they play with them. Oh, I should also mention that Lily and Amelia's moms are fabulous as well and we always have a great time together:) Abby's very first sleepover was at Lily's house and it was VERY memorable!

The idea for the ladybug came from the Lion Brand yarn website (and I just realized I need to put antennae on these three!) but I changed it a bit.

What's Up With This?

Why am I the only one posting here? Hmmmmm? Shanan, get working!!! LOL!

Anyway, my cousin Theresa saw the previous mermaid and reminded me how much our cousin Aubrie loves mermaids and since her college graduation is coming up I set out to make this UW Huskie mermaid (yellow hair, purple hooters). She's a curvaceous hottie!

She needed some bling to have her stand out a little so she is sporting some freshwater pearls...

and an abalone hair piece!

She went to her new home today and will be loved, I'm sure of it:) Congrats Brie! Love ya!

(PS- it's also an appropriate grad gift since her major is Aquatic and Fisheries Sciences....oh, and Theresa gets credit for the abalone idea too!)
