I'm not hedging around anymore


So here's the promised little cutie. She told me she wants to live with you. I think she's scared of the grabby little hands that tried to claim her as their own when she made her debut from my sewing room. I followed the tutorial at matsutake to make this. I thought she needed ears when she was done so she had something to wear her bow on. Do hedgehogs have ears? I have to admit that she's probably going to be the only one of her kind that issues from my sewing room. The tutorial was great, but I'm not a fan of hand sewing. My fingertips are still sensitive from the amount of sewing required to get her ruffles attached to her little hedgie body. I won a giveaway a few months back from Bit of Whimsy Dolls for a set of fat quarters. So I finally cut into those for the fabric, and I think she's the prettiest little pastel hedgehog I've ever met. Like I already mentioned, she's a bit shy and might not be the best playmate for young children. But I think you'll find her quiet and very easy to take care of. She even comes with her own nibbles. A pair of sweet strawberries made from a tutorial found over here at Embroideroo. (If you visit her blog, be sure to check out the pictures of the birds she feeds. She has parrots come to her bird feeders. I'm so jealous! But she's also never seen a humming bird in person, so I do have that. But I really want wild parrots...*sigh*)

So there you have it. That's my one year blogiversary gift I'm offering to one lucky reader. Because I've been so tardy in posting pictures, I've decided to extend the deadline for entering by just a couple days. So I'll leave it open until Saturday evening on the 14th. Enter by commenting on my previous post. It's not a big thing, but I hope she will bring a little bright spot to whomever gets to claim her just like your comments bring a bright spot to my day!

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
