Favorite tutorial for Hands 2 Help

I started sewing bears several years go in between quilting.  It is something I had really enjoyed doing, but I needed a better method of closing up my plushies because I started selling them.  I was told of a  ladder stitch method and finally perfected it on my own.  (Duh, I forget about Googling stuff).  However , Julie at Crafty Quilter shared this great tutorial a week or so ago.  Hopefully it will help save someone else some time. if they should find themselves closing pillows, plushies or what ever needs closing nicely. After you have practiced a couple of times it will become unnoticeable.

The tutorial is by and can be hound here.

MY latest plushie is  sweet,  but very shy.  but willing to show you her stitches.

While the area is visible, her stitches are not.  Patience is my first Platypus, so her siblings should improve with age. 

Hugs and Blessing to you and yours.

Small Smaller and Smallest

Good morning all, 
I'm just going to cut to the chase here, 
I had several ideas I wanted to tray for this, so I decided to do all three.  The small project being first
A baby doll quilt out of a extra block.     .

The smaller being next of course.
Can't decide if I like the vintage buttons or not, so I just used a dot of glue hold them.
I'm thinking of tying them with some black heavy thread.  Do you think that would help? 
or take them off?

Of course that brings us to the smallest.
He is made of a vintage wool ladies blazer.

I found sometimes small is not as easy as it looks.
I had a lot of fun though.

That's my version of Small  Smaller  Smallest
I want to thank Carol for hosting hop, no stress, just fun.
Hope you enjoyed the visit.  Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to see the other ladies.
In case you missed any day of the hop here is the entire list of participants.

Have a blessed day.
