Esme asked if I could make this toy she saw in a TV commercial. I haven't gotten his shell made yet, but she is downstairs playing with him 'eating all the toys' already. I still need to do the embroidery on his 'hands' as well... but that will take a while to do. I designed him so that he could at least eat the zebra blanket from her bed, but definitely not what I was sure the commercial items had in them that would allow them to eat a LOT of things... he is just a toy with a bag in it, like the whale I wanted to make once and might still make.
We also went to the park today, fed some ducks and played with another girl. We had ice cream sundaes and played in the garden some. She has had a pretty good day - we both got some sun. I planted the Japonica striped corn and the whipporwill peas today.
