first, yesterday was a huge day for my blog... hit the 1000th comment mark and i decided to make it interesting... for me mainly (and beth, as it turns out). the person who left that thousandth comment, i decided, needed a prize. so, here it is, without further ado... one hundred million great britain pounds!!!! hahahahaha, not really beth... sorry.
but you will be getting this.
this is one side, the side with inquisitive deer... or, maybe they are licking salt?
this is the other side, with the one alert one... he is watching for poachers.
then.... i need to mention these beauties. last fall faun at the red button tree hosted an embroidered patch swap, i sent her two and got these two wonderful patches in return. and, as a thank you for participating faun sent everyone a prize, i received this wonderful print titled 'thinking of you'.
the pink squirrel is cathy's work. it is adapted from pattern by andrea zuill. he is on some wonderful grey wool and i love him. the ladybug is from jen. it is beautifully made and i love it too. the little card? that is a note from faun.
and then, because i finished this today too... a pouch for ingrid.
using the last bit of the fantastic print that i have. lined with a silk plaid, i think it will be just the thing to keep her pretties in.
and last! there seems to be quite a nice response to those piggies of mine! thank you. i am going to make more and have them available in my etsy shop. i want to get a few made before i start offering them for sale so it will be a couple of weeks i would guess. and, they will have company. specifically, roosters, sheep, goats, donkeys, horses, bunnies, and a cow. and michelle had a brilliant idea of making a group of bremen town musicians so i am going to do that too....!
drawing class is tonight, it was canceled last week due to the crappy weather we were having. i ran out of steam and haven't maintained my two drawings a day, but interestingly enough, i am thinking about drawing and not having my stomach knot up, so i am making huge, HUGE progress... thank you everyone for your compliments and support, it is quite invigorating. i will continue to post what i do here. look for hats and gloves tonight.
