|Blue ringed octopus pillow for Monika. Made with vintage doily and fabric.|
Yes, I sewed this entire pillow on my own. Surprised?
|The blue ringed octopus is very deadly.|
|Laptop case for Catherine. Yeah, it required some sewing, and I didn't measure quite right, so Mom|

|A dead-eyed fox|
|A quail. I love quail! They're so funny.|

A set of flour sack dish towels for Abbie.
|Narwhal, also called the "corpse whale" because it sort of looks like a corpse floating in the water.|

You can watch some awesome cuttlefish footage from NOVA here.
If I haven't given you an embroidered gift, just wait.
I'm sure there's one in the works.
