Sometimes you just need an Angel!

I seem to be very behind with everything at the moment. A combination of lethargy,lack of time and a wrist that doesn't quite do what I want. Which is why the day before the Little Blue Tortoise's birthday I still hadn't organised making her present.
I had decided on this Tilda Angel last year as it is just perfect for her. Then I ended up making something else. The fabric has been sitting waiting on the shelf looking at me for months. so on Wednesday I drew around the pieces. The sewing on the machine wasn't difficult and I whipped it up Thursday morning before work. However stuffing it was a bit beyond me. Luckily I had two little angels of my own to help!
They really enjoyed it even though it was a little rushed(we did it as we got home from school). I can see more of these popping up around the house very soon.
I think everyone has now received my Handmade Happiness Gifts so I shall reveal what I made. The posie pattern is from Lucy at Attic24
the needlecases and the bookcovers are my own design.I am very pleased with the book covers and one of these days I will make one for myself.

There are some very complimentary things said both Here and Here.
Mousie here was given as part of the exchange but was really for a very pernickity cat called Jack. The lure of cat nip makes him like me a little better.

The booties are for a soon to be arrival.

    Thanks for the angel, I love her :-D. And Jacks is still playing with his catnip mouse daily, so that is definitely a winner as far as he's concerned (and he's always very fussy about his toys!).All the handmade gifts look beautiful, you've done a fab job. Time to make something for yourself though now, I think? You must make another angel for yourself at least!

    Looks like you've been quite busy making lovely things for others to enjoy. Lovely patchwork and crochet, I'm sure they'll all be much treasured!
