new monsters

I made two new monsters - or I should say guardian spirits: one is the monster of plum tree and the second - of the forrest. Of course, they look like monsters anyway. But it's fun to make them. Will they be liked as Lucky? Lucky was lucky enough to make lots of friends, but how about them?
If everything goes well today I will take them - in brand new packages - to the Elf Bookstore, my favourite bookstore with children books. The owner, who selects really good books with awesome artistc illustrations, not just average mass production, is interested in handmade softies and wants some supply. Good for me.
They are both decorated with ribbons and felt. And some embroidery - like this little bird saying "chearp". It's a Polish forrest monster so even birds are saying in Polish - well, patriots. This monster is protector of wild animals, like this hare and wolf - finger puppet. And the other, the smaller one - is protector of orchard.
I believe they are nice. Adam was frankly and said that my kitties and bear are much better, but anyway I'll take my chance and take them to the Elf.
I have to hurry untill Ada's having a nap - in the evening I'm going to Torun. What a luck that next week I won't - on Thursday is Corpus Christi and two days holiday! In such occasions I think it's great to live in the country domineered by Roman-Catholicism. I should be happy to meet my students, and I am, but all that travelling and leaving to raise my child to someone else ... - no use to say it again.

Thank you for visiting and comment - it's nice :) . I have an Etsy shop - (but have no time to make any supply) - but I'm newbie there. I used to make toys for custom orders, actually - for all over the world, but just on emails :)
