Feeling Inspired!

Alright. So this week, it's all about pretending I have enough time to make something as adorable as this. {As usual} there is a ton of activity around here, and I feel almost super human just getting dinner on the table these days.

However, if things were different, I would sit quietly and make a little community of these pixies (the pdf pattern can be found here, just in case your days are different):

I understand the pattern comes with two different methods for making the hair — the yarn version you see here and needle felting, which may look something like this (I'm not certain, just guessing):
Which would be awfully stinkin' cute too.

And oh my, have you seen these little things?

Unfortunately they aren't patterns, but you can buy them completely finished (with a wardrobe!) from Manomine in the UK. 

Isn't a little whimsy just the thing to balance all that work we do all the time?

Happy sewing!
