Another monster is complete. This one even got a squeaker inside, thanks to Maud, who managed to extract it from one of her poor toys. It also has little red wings and a blue check tail on its back, which you can’t see in the photo. I made him for Nom for her birthday – she named him Alphonse. I feel this suits him just right.

Unfortunately, because he squeaks, Maud assumed he must be for her. As I was trying to photograph him in the garden, she kept picking him up by the ear and taking him away to play with. He needed rescuing on several occasions, and I had to try and stop myself from squeaking him in front of her.
