One of my favorite projects I have ever had come to fruition was the fabric line based on the puppet I did for my Easy-to-Sew Playful Toys book. Buggles became a cotton and flannel line manufactured by Northcott.

I received a delightful FaceBook message from Kerry Pratt Goulder with a picture of her darling daughter holding a Buggles quilt panel blanket.

"Last year my daughter and I went to a Project Linus Blanket Day here in Maine...and made this blanket. That's actually my daughter! I stitched all the way around the bunny! That was the cutest fabric!...I gave it up for a great cause!
Project Linus Cumberland County ME Chapter: March Upcoming Blanket Days - Please c...ome and join us!"

In the children's ward at the hospital here it also is a wall hanging. To know that Buggles is keeping someone cozy and will be their special blankie is very touching. So much of what we do is made meaningful by the stories people share.

Creating a fabric line with my good friend ilustrator Deborah Peyton was exciting for us both but beyond that is knowing many babies and children are warm and cuddled in the blankets each night. That is the real gift of our creativity. Mom's grandmothers and caring people took what we designed and created their gifts of love.

Creativity & caring, sharing life's gifts. With gratitude, Debra!
