My Creative Space...

A few weeks ago I told you all that I was knitting a unicorn. Well, I finished a while ago but just never got round to taking photos until this morning.


She's been named Smelly because apparently she won't let Ella give her a bath.


When I introduced her to Ella it was definitely not love at first sight like I'd hoped. Here's how it went:


I'd finished Smelly late one night and was planning on giving her to Ella the next day but when Ella woke up having had a bad dream at about 3am I said "Maybe you need a Unicorn to sleep with" and Ella nodded her head so I went to get the unicorn and I gave it to Ella. When she saw it she said "That's a donkey...and it's brown".


I'm putting it down to being pretty dark in the room at the time.


Anyway, since then they have fallen in love and sleep together every night.
