The Real Moe




Meet the Real Moe.  The other one was just an impostor.  Actually it is completely embarrassing, but I kept losing Melissa's email that had a picture of Moe attached.  There's no excuse---it was just me being a complete dunce.  So, I was too embarrassed to ask Melissa to send yet another picture of Moe, so I simply google-imaged Corgi and relied on my brilliant memory to pick out what Moe must have looked like, I thought for sure I had it right that he was orange and rather Twinkie-like, but I was completely mistaken.  Melissa was so great and understanding about my mistake!  If you'd like to see the inspiration for the pillow monstered Moe, go here.  Isn't he cute?  That other one is Emmit, Melissa's pug and he looks like he is such a great companion.  I am a dog person, most definitely.  I think they are incredible creatures.  For me, they are evidence that the world is a good, good place.

I LOVE the fabric you used for the "new" Moe's shirt! Just perfect. As usual, such great work Nichol! :D

I was thinking about you yesterday and how I'm so in love with everything you design ... and how jealous I am that you're so prolific. And then I thought, "I hope she is keeping track of those patterns, because they would make a great book." And they would. Or you could sell them separately. You know, if you want to do that kind of thing (which you totally don't have to - you can keep all your monster-secrets to yourself. really). You are so talented and such an inspiration. :)
