A red robot

A few weeks ago I had an email from the lovely and clever Miss Smith asking if I wanted to swap some of my baby shoes for one of her robots. I have been coveting her wonderful robots for a while now and so I jumped at the chance to do my first ever "proper" swap. I asked for a red robot that could keep me company while I'm sewing and I've been eagerly awaiting his arrival.

Yesterday a parcel arrived in the post, along with a note of introduction for Mr Red:

Note of introduction

And true to his programming, last night I found him diligently rethreading my overlocker:

Helping with my sewing

And this morning, he'd gotten up early to warm my teacup:

Cuppa tea?

Thanks Miss Smith, he is wonderful! I think I'm going to enjoy having a robot in the house...

oh he is GORGEOUS!!!!
love the personality on paper - the kiddos'n'i had a ton of fun with these sock creatures last month - they're really friendly to make and have the same Quirk Factor that Monsieur Red Robot does!
happy sunshine robot days!!!
