Reindeer surgery

Paula was given a lovely reindeer which is designed in the same style as a lot of the cuddlies and softies one sees online these days. "Elchie" is too cute to bear. But he was born in China and one can tell why this is cheaper. The hand-sown seams where he had been stuffed came apart after only a few (vigorous) cuddling sessions ...

Long story short: there is something to be said for local handiwork and crafts-mum-ship!
