Have been doing some of that fun blog-hopping this afternoon while the two 'big' girls (3&4) are busy magicking toy cats back to life using (obviously) dead cat magic that lives in a crown! And I have come across this great image. Miss Magda suggest using it for embroidery but I can see it painted onto all sorts of things.
And then just a little bit late I am able to show you the beautiful fabric I used for a borrowed child's Christmas present. (Good grief! These two are having an awful lot of death and dying in this game. Fortunately 'The Prince' is coming to make them alive again!)
(Who knew I would learn how to lay out a corpse from a four year old? A 4 y.o.who is the actual corpse!)
Then through the magic of scissors, (not living in a crown though)
and the joy that is iron-on interfacing
we end up with the nearly finished, seasonal baby bunting.
I wasn't actually clever enough to get a photie before I gave it away but I was really pleased with it and have enough prepped tringles (deliberate spelling - honest!) left over to do more for next year.
Over the weekend I picked up a pair of 3.5 mm needles and some fluffy pink wool the proceeded to knit out the spaces that were NOT pig-shaped. By Monday night I was left with this....
I feel he may have to be called Mr.SnootyKnickers because his nose is stuck way high in the air even though I got rid of all the not-pig space in the prescribed way.
And this is my favourite current way of painting backgrounds (the swoosh of colour, not with a pen). Do you like it?
I started creating a something last night that may possibly be for someone who lives up on the Severn somewhere. And I am really pleased with it so far. I have sneaking suspicion that I like my knitting just like my men - simple AND interesting.
One of the lovliest things that is possible in the land of Blogville happened to me the other day - the delightful Missus Moog gave me a 'You make my day' award! Me getting an award?! Dead chuffed I was and all I did for it was share my thoughts with y'all.
When I told CK he suggested the award be given to anyone who reads this page as he says he knows how hard it can be to wade through and make sense of my thoughts put onto a page. I believe after nine months of letters from Australia he was considering therapy!
Oo! Maybe I could use Miss Magda's lovely pattern on that little box?! Ooo!
