Stuffed Animal Collection: 'Twas the Night Before Christmas

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the jungle.... creatures were stirring.... and scurried about. They poked and prodded the hard frozen ground, pawed at roots, or pecked branches and trunk. All looked about for a morsel or two; 't would bring them all cheer. 'twas a cold winter night and not a cookie was left; Santa if he came would find not a snack, for in the wild jungle a lump of coal would be good for a fire and warmth. And perhaps a roast goose, or a duck would fill all the empty tummies, that otherwise starve. Oh Santa, for us in the jungle so wide, carve not a doll or a train, but a great roast beast and vegetables for a side. Make for us a Christmas feast, and not a single toy. For us a full tummy would bring greatest joy, and let this pass to all nations blinded by greed, Santa, tell them: there are many starving children to feed. Bring them God's love, and a message to their heart, like the Grinch so long ago, Help them see the meaning of "…

Stuffed Animal Collection: Chi Chi Reports

Um hi, My name is chi chi. I'm here on behalf of the King, Sher Con the Great, to report on the service auction I went to.
 There was a great turnout, and everyone seemed to be having fun. I couldn't tell for sure as someone forgot to inform me it was a ladies only event and I had to hide in Jenn's purse! --
Youshould have just told them you were there on My business; they would have let you in, and probably given you a grand seat too!
Well anyway I was not informed and I'm still new to the job of being your royal messenger, so I did not know all that. you should have told mewhat to do to get in.--
On to the report. I listened close and even took notes on what I heard. There were many great service crafts auctioned including four of the King's "blankets" courtesy of Jenn and Becky. In fact there were so many great crafts that Becky's handknit blankets had to be auctioned in pairs. They were calling them table savers, Becky and Jenn say they're dis…

35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through hi

Stuffed Animal Collectio: Becky's Been Busy!

Hi everyone! It's been a while, and I have been busy, busy, busy! This fall Jenn and I have been making hand knit dishcloths with special designs on them! Sher Con took the pumpkin one we made first, - He called it a blanket! - Jenn is still just a little upset about that, but honestly for us stuffed animals it's big enough to be a blanket to us. But we want you to know their purpose is washing dishes. - especially the holiday ones! - Right, especially the holiday dishes. It adds a festive mood to the less than desirable chore of clean up after all that feasting and holiday cooking, (or so I've been told).
Anyway, we've been busy knitting and documenting the designs so we can show everyone how to make them, they are just so fun! We've made four so far and will take them with us to the service auction. Later, Chi Chi will report how much they went for. It should be loads of fun! Last year we took 2. A pumpkin, and a Christmas tree and both went for around 100 servic…
