I was also tempted beyond resistance by this amigurumi book 'Super Cute'. I have never played with cute crochet so it remains to be seen how successful this will be. I think this will be one to take on holiday with a few balls of wool and plenty of time.
My best friend from back home treated me to 'Stitched Toys'. Naturally Jen will need to be the first recipient of a little felt mouse! I think there are lots of basic patterns in here which can be embroidered and embellished to make them little works of textile art more than just toys for little on
es. The same goes for 'Wee Wonderfuls', this was from my Sister-in-law-to-be who I now would appreciate this book herself. All in all a strong feeling of cute, I always find it fascinating how gifts given reflect how people see you, and how some gifts are really given for the giver- (e.g underwear from partners!) So what did your Christmas gifts tell you about how people see you? Were your gifts frivolous, practical, saucy? Do tell!
