Alisha, you're a life saver!! My future DIL had seen an octopus pattern in one of my old Workbaskets I was giving away and I forgot to pull it out for her. The guilt has been killing me! Olga is so much cuter, even. I printed it and I'm sending it to her right away. I so enjoy other people's creativity since I have none. THANKS!

I like the collar, that's very neat. And the eyes are unique, not something I'd ever think to do. Love the colors too, of course.
