Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jig.

 After a wonderful whirlwind trip to Australia, I'm back home again with Jonno and the boys. As always, it was so hard saying goodbye to my family in Australia, especially all of the little ones who grow so much in between visits. I am so lucky to have such a great family but leaving them tends to cause huge squeezing pains in my heart - it actually truly hurts... but still, nothing like cuddles from big little 6 and 9 year old boys to soothe it.
 While I was in Australia (and I will do more on my trip later in the week), I made a few friends for Stanley. Do you like his baby? She actually pops out of the backpack... Don't be alarmed by the presence of a fox - he's only really interested in chicks. Rabbits are safe.

I had so much fun developing these characters while I was away - now I can't way to do Dogman and Wolfman and Frogman and Deerman. So much to do and not a clean spot in the house to do it in...
Lots of love,
Kate xxooxx.
p.s. It is soooo good to be back in blogland!!!!!

  6. These are ALL so stinking adorable! I love the fox, his tail and all is beautiful. Please let me know when I can buy some friends for My Stanley - I bet he'd love a foxy friend. And the baby. Oh.

    I'm really glad you had a good time back at home with your family. I know that feeling of pure deep gut wrench on having to leave them. Aren't we lucky to live in a time when airtravel is possible. I can' imagine those people who hopped on a boat to some far flung country and never saw or heard from their family again.

  7. ah welcome back! I spotted that little fox in the tiny tile on my sidebar...I love a homemade fox of any description (even though our Mr fox keeps eating our chickens!)
    And a baby rabbit in a little carrier? too cute!
