nuts and bolts

No, not a post about engines, you will probably be relieved to hear but one about robots.

As mum to two boys who have cleverly copped on to their mother's love of making, I constantly receive requests for things little boys love.  Monsters, beetles and dinosaurs.

The latest was robots.  So this little appliqued robot came into being.  I'm not sure what to do with him though.

I was thinking of framing him for their room but I don't know.  They are quite taken with him and this means both could enjoy him.

I wonder should he say something.  I can't decide.

I am feeling so much better these past few days and want to say a huge thank you for the lovely comments on my last post.  They made my day.  I'm sure all the positive vibes helped me get rid of the bugs.

  4. He's so sweet, Bee! Love his Argyle outfit! And at the very least, he deserves to be given a name :-) What do your boys think: wall hanging / cushion?
    Happy weekend,
    Xx

  6. He's great! I always struggle with designing stuff for boys. I immediately imagined him saying "beep!" for some reason! Sorry to hear you've been poorly - wishing you a speedy convalescence.

  9. Love him Bee! Glad you are feeling better. I'd let them play with him for a while and no doubt they'll move on to something else, then frame him! He'll look great on the wall. x

  14. Hello there!
    Like it a lot. I agree with miss Daisy, crying out to be cool boy cards or postcards. I'd buy one. Xxx

  15. Think he would look great in a frame then you can all enjoy him! x

  16. He would look great in a frame or maybe on a cushion, but I'd tend towards a frame - my boys believe all cushions belong on the floor and I would hate to recommend that fate for your robot. He's too cool. Glad you're feeling better btw.x

    1. I know that cushion problem ... we have it here too ... thanks ... hope you are feeling better too ... love your crochet ... Bee xx

  17. Bee, he's perfect! I think if he's saying anything it should just be a cheerful "hello!". He'd look great framed or on a cushion. Glad to hear you are feeling better.
