Hippo!


Look! The first definitively female plushie in our collection! Not that pink necessarily equals female, but Nathan thought her name needed to be Gladys so that pretty much decided her gender. I think she turned out pretty cute! I'm a big hippo fan, so it's a wonder it took me this long to make one. The only thing I don't really like about her is how she looks from head-on. She only has one ear, so a front view looks kind of goofy. Hopefully whoever she ends up with won't mind and will just display her like the picture above... except maybe not on a woodpile.

Simon (our pet rat) went on an outdoor adventure with us as we searched for a good place to take Gladys' photo! He did a lot of sniffing, probably trying to figure out if any of those smells led to food. Silly Simon.





Isn't he cute?? Oh yeah, and Simon's not bad either.
