bats in the belfry - alternatively titled "bat scratch fever"

Uh oh! It looks like we have an uninvited guest hanging around the basement:
Oh hey! It's just Freddy! Freddy is my entry to this year's Holiday Softie Awards. I wasn't sure about whether or not I wanted to participate in this round, but then the idea for Freddy struck me. What can I say? It was too good to pass up. I may make a few more bats and put them up in the shop, but that won't be until next week. I'll keep you all posted. In the meanwhile, hope you are all having a lovely weekend! See you tomorrow with more finished softies.
