Plush Swap: From Hibou to Yermit
Posted by: Yermit
This week I was so excited to get my a box in the mail from what could only be another plush artist. And indeed - the talented Hibou Designs had drawn my name for the plush swap.
In a heady rush I tore open the box, pausing to remember that I needed to photograph the event for my Unboxing post here, and alas, the lighting was horrible! So sorry Anne-Claire!
Inside the package was wrapped in bright blue tissue paper, and tied with a bright green feather (which the cats immediate took possession of!). (I won't insert my blurry photo of this here).
INSIDE!!!!! Wow wow! The most terrific Tiger Cat Bird with a horse tail by the name of "Kat Von Hoof".
(I stopped the process at this point to run upstairs and get some decent lighting.)
Says Hibou, "He's a fantastical animal with magical powers --- some say his powers come from his horse tail ... he mainly feeds on dill pickles."
Also included was a bag filled with goodies.
I love love love love my new plush. The detail is amazing. The colours are bright and fun. This is a quality, well made and brilliant piece of art. It will have a place of honour in my home. Thanks so much Anne-Claire!
