Beds for Sally and Brave Lion

Once upon a time there was a wonderful grandmother named Nanny.  Nanny had two grandchildren who lived in England.  Their names were  Evie and Canaan.  At Christmas Evie and Canaan each received a new small animal.

One of the animals was a Brave Lion.  The other animal was a fluffy white puppy. 
Evie named her new fluffy white puppy Sally.  Canaan named his new lion Brave Lion.
But.....Brave Lion and Sally did not have a bed. Nanny decided to make them each a bed.
She found a pattern here that a really nice person shared and used it to crochet the new beds.

 Nanny made a white, pink and violet bed for Sally, the fluffy white puppy.
Nanny made a green, blue and yellow bed for Brave Lion.

The beds are a surprise for Evie and Canaan, Sally and Brave Lion.

Evie and Canaan's nice Mommy Jessica is taking a trip to see Nanny.
She will bring the new beds back to England for Sally and Brave Lion
Will Sally and Brave Lion really like their new beds.......

More to come..........

  7. I don't know who will like these more - Evie and Canaan or Sally and Brave Lion. These are cute!

  8. Ohhh. Those look like super birdy nests to me!!!! I once read an article about a woman who loved to sew & knit, and loved birds too (like me). She would save bits of colored fabric, pretty string and fuzy yarn from projects she worked on all year. Then, in early spring, she would drape the fabric & yarn on the barren trees awaiting the arrival of spring. Pretty colored yarn would drape the trees like isicles and fabric tucked here and there in all patterns and textures. Then, as spring emerged, the birds would use the materials to build nests in the trees and bushes woven with twigs and leaves. She took pictures of the pretty colorful nests which decorated the trees all year for everyone to see. And when the leaves once again fell in the fall, the little works of art would remain, a small brightly woven nest in a barren tree! Wouldn't that just be delightful to see? Every year I aim to add more birdfriendly plants and water to attract the birds but I never quite make it to put the yarn out...but I think your pretty little beds have inspired me!!!!!

  9. What a nice and thoughtful Nanny! Those are cute little bed for the stuffy's.
