coming soon // a golfing gopher and other golf motifs

Fore! A golfing gopher!

I tend to make unrealistic to-do lists. The kind of lists that would never get done in their alloted time even in the best case scenario. And then you throw in life, and well...those lists are just plain crazy! Fortunately all of the things that MUST get done, do get done. And all the rest that don't have a deadline...well, eventually they happen. They're like a bonus!

This little gopher is part of a set of embroidery patterns that someone special requested. She already has the patterns (the MUST get done) and now I'm stitching the sample for the pattern to officially go in my shop (the rest without a deadline). I'm quite happy stitching such a chipper animal, and whenever it ends up in the shop, well, that's just fine.

But soon, very soon, it will be done.

By the way, if you're ever looking for a themed pattern set and I haven't made that theme yet, let me know and I might be able to make it happen. Some of my favorite ideas have come from customers!

    You should name him Carl or Rodney.....

  2. These animals are darling! How about a theme of animals doing crafts? Like knitting, sewing, stitching, scrapping, etc. Those would be fun to do!

  3. All your designs are so adorable. I had no idea you take customer requests! I would love to see your take on animals like rams, buffalo and badgers :)

  4. OK, well, this is the cutest thing I've ever seen!

  5. So perfect for my husband, the Golfing Grampa, since we live in Minnesota, the Gopher State!

  6. He's adorable. We are not golfers but we do rent our house out for the Master's Golf Tounament. Maybe adding this little guy to the decor would add some golfing mojo to offset all the cycling paraphernalia and help make the golf fans feel more at home.

  7. I am also posting from the Gopher State, and his little sweater and hat will look great in maroon and gold! Beautifully done, Mollie! I need to get this pattern :)

    I think a tropical or beach theme could be really cute...
