thanks tam!

my big sister, tam, sent me this cute softies magazine last week - i was very excited when i opened it to see what it was!

"The Toy Book: In fabric oddments or felt" (no. 524), 1976, England. (by the way, toys are by Anne and Barry Morley - another couple!) can't find anything about them on the inter-ma-net though...

I really like the tiger and the owls -- now to think who i could make them for!

Lucky You!! That softie book looks great and that owl photo is adorable.

I will have to get back to you on what the hanging chairs from ceiling cafe was called and which laneway it was in. I highly recommend the chocolate cupcakes!
