Cossack at Soggibottom Cottage


It's not often that I am speechless.

Who said, "we know"?

This morning the postman rang the doorbell as I lazily thought about getting out of bed.
A parcel from Russia. Inside the parcel one authentic Russian Cossack outfit lovingly made to fit the Soggibottom Bear from Polina. I have yet to add his boots from his wardrobe but couldn't wait to put on his new Cossack suit. He has sat watching the world go by in his new outfit all day.


Polina also sent some Russian chocolate, we decided the bear is getting slightly porky and we might have to help him out with it. I am not quite sure how to say thank you as I am so taken aback at Polina's generosity. THANK YOU POLINA X X X X X X X

I normally make his outfits that he wears during his time watching and keeping an eye on the cottage from the window. I never made this one, but it is definitely one of his best.


Have to add here....
Soggibottom has a twitter account thing....
I hum.... hardly use a mobile if I can help it...... so should be fun..... keep warm to all those that still have snow...
Spring really isn't far off, I am sure it has arrived here in Devon...... I can Feel It ! x x x
