When I was a little girl I always sort of believed my stuffed animals were alive. I felt like they could talk to me. The story of The Velveteen Rabbit spoke my heart. I loved my stuffed friends. Perhaps that is why I very much love creating these animals out of yarn and fluff.
Oscar is the first in a set of sea creatures I'm working on. I haven't quite decided what I will do with them, but I love him regardless. On the hook right now is a multi-colored fish. I imagine it will only take a fraction of the time Oscar took, what with all those legs and suction cups. I hope you love him as much as I do!
