Purple Poppet

Sock Puppet
A friend of mine has friends who go to India to work with children there, and they find puppets are a good way to communicate.  They asked if we could make some.
Here is one I made for them to take. It is my first go at this.
I have a lot of trouble with hot glue guns and seem to get more on me than on the project.  I got some ideas off the internet and used the bits that worked for me.
 It is all I have done this week apart from sleep as I had a bad fall on Tuesday hurting my back, hip and knee, and while I am still very ouchy, today I managed to make it up the stairs to work on it.
Hmmm maybe I could put some ears on it...
Maybe on the next one.

Hi Carol. I hope you have recovered from your fall. Your puppet is very cute with loads of personality.

Thank you so much for the lovely get well card you sent me, along with the wee packet of paper embellishments. It was very thoughtful of you and such a bright spot in my day.

Blessing hugs,
