Charlie and Dave

Charlie and Dave have given me even more fun this week as people have tried to guess what they are. I won’t keep you in suspense any longer, they are chipmunks. Well, the instruction in the book was for a chipmunk and they were sort of following instructions, it’s just that laughter got in the way.

You can see why I didn’t show you these picture before, as fuzzy (or good, remember Grandma’s never done this before) as the shape may be I think the markings would have given it away instantly. My daughter actually got quite upset during the making because it wasn’t looking like the picture in the book, but once she realised that actually it didn’t matter, it was a fun day, she really got into the mood of things. The fact that I kept muttering about mutant chipmunks and used Grandma’s chipmunk as a gun, was nothing to do with her little wobble (or was it?)

Kate is the lucky person who’ll be receiving a flower brooch for her pains and I have to say that even if she hadn’t guessed it, I may have had to reward her persistence! Well done Kate, let me know your address and I’ll send you your well earned goody.
