Sleepy Sam

...and he's not the only one. But while Sam is wearing just the one hat, I am wearing several, as it were and juggling a book job with toy making with getting my new card designs up for sale, is starting to wear a little.



Yawn...




...pick me up and put me to bed with a good book and some cocoa. Preferably not standing on my head.

He makes me think a nap is in order. Very cute.

I'm running out of new words to describe your felty creations, so I think I shall have to be boring and say yet again: Fantastic!
The hot water bottle, the socks, the hat, his posture, all so sweet.

I totally agree with Catherine. There are no words for how fantastic I think Sam is. You are amazing!

Erin said...

I love Sam...the Water Bottle is Genius, pure genius! :)

Cathy said...

He's fantabulous and superb and wonderful and I'm really intrigued as to how your watercolour characters come to life and leap off the page in this fashion!

He's adorable! I'm getting sleepy just looking at him.

Well, it's 7 AM and I'm wide awake... ok, I'm not awake, I'm so, sooo sleepy, I'm half asleep. Looking at Sam makes me want to grab a pair of socks, some warm bottle and my safety blanket and go back to sleeeeep... yawn...
He's stunning!

I totally hear you. And I'm supposed to be inbetween jobs right now... Things just don't ever quite work out the way you might hope, do they?

This is so charming - yes, I agree with everyone - makes me want to go right back to bed.
Our daughter Claudia is in Oxford this weekend.
Makes me feel nostalgic for all those years ago........
We loved meeting Penny and her family in Marrakech a few weeks ago
All best wishes

Sleepy Sam is another of your incredible creations. I like all the different colours you have used ... now when I'm watching the geese and their babies along the river, I'll have a lovely image of Sam tucked away.
