Meet Mrs Perkins

You can call her Dotty Perkins Be kind, she's listening to everything you say.
Please note the pretty pink hooves,
The very flash and fashionable buttons.
Really she's a little shy about all this posing.
This is her best side, I think she has a kink in her neck, I might have to take her to the Chiropractor with me.
Whew all that posing makes her a bit pooped.


I've joined Lurline and Joy in making this softie from a Melly and Me pattern, but they must have a lot going on because there's no sign of any impending giraffes yet.
