I have just the thing for you.

Angry Birds . The most sickenly addicting game we play. Ugh. I have a love/hate relationship with Angry Birds.

And on the iPad? You can literally waste an HOUR of your time just trying to pass one level. Horrible. I mean, when you're in line at the Post Office for 2 hours a day, you can certainly play then...but like a good author, Angry Birds just sucks you into some time continuum and you're STUCK playing until you pass the stupid board.

Don't even get me started on the Christmas Advent App. Maybe all levels should be like that. One board PER DAY until Christmas. The PAIN and ANGUISH we felt as we passed, happy to go on...only to realize we had 11 hours and 52 minutes until we could play the next.

So, luckily my friends are all looking out for me. They all know this horrible infatuation with the game. And one of my friends pointed me to Obsessively Stitching .

Angry Birds Plush.

Something for me to SEW...and PLAY...and LOVE all at the same time!!?? Soemone pinch me.

So guess what I did?

I made some.

And now they're all sitting in my office nice and happy (minus the Red one cause Cathy stole it) staring down at everyone who comes to visit me.

My mother-in-law is picking me up several yards of fleece, because the felt ones are OK for offices, but I want fleece ones to throw at my kids when they aren't listening and staring at the oblivion called Cable TV.

Kaisa already said she wants a sling shot to go with.

I'm a latecomer to the game -- just started playing the 'lite' version over the holidays and am holding myself to that until I master all levels -- just a couple to go and then I'll switch to the regular version. It really is addictive, worse than Farmville was for me (and that was baaaaad!)

These are so stinkin' awesome!!! I love them!

My 12 y/o and I LOVE Angry Birds. The Christmas one really tortured us but we defeated all the levels, wooohooo. It was pretty sad when I was laying in bed at 2am, my phone under the covers, trying to pass levels.

My name is Lisa, and I'm an Angry Bird-aholic!

Hahahahaha! It's good to read about someone else dealing with that huge time-suck, Angry Birds. Great work with the sewing too. They look great!

Did you read where it was developed??
Total coincidence? Maybe...

Oh my goodness, those are CUTE! I only know about the game because of Dear Daughter, but those plushies are awesome!

Thanks for visiting my blog- you know, I lived in Barrow for five years as a child, and had friends from Kotzebue all those years ago! So good to find another Eskimo out here in BlogLand!
