This one I made for my friend Anne who also turned 40 in October. I spent so long making this and felt quite teary that I wasn't able to give it to her in person. I have known Anne all my life and it's at times lilke birthdays or births of children that I feel sad that I live so far away in Denmark!
Anyway she was most happy with her present so that made it all worth while, and I am planning on a quick trip over soon to the UK so hopefully we will meet up! I have to plan what animal to make for my other friend in the UK, I have until June to plan and make that so that's great!!
