Small, but pretty

Well, I like it :)

Finally, a finish:
Just Nan's My Fair Ladybug.

Now, that eternal question - how to present it? I have thoughts of it as a box topper, but where to find a box? I've not had much luck finding a source here in NZ.

The Ribbon Rose are now stocking Framecrafts lovely bowls, but they're quite expensive (try $98 for the large one).

I will just have to keep my eyes open in my travels for inspiration.

Long time, no post

And not much stitching either
And there are many in the WIP pile (one with a need to be done by date - yikes!), and even more in the stash pile, all waiting patiently for me to get stitching again.
So much for a finish a month
Ah well, as an Amway business owner once said: when the going gets tough, the tough go shopping. Off to Ribbon Rose and Spotlight it was for a stock up on petites (needles) and DMC to kit up some of the charts in my stash.
Y'know - I did feel better afterwards and I have done a teensy bit of stitching...but not enough yet for a progress pic, sorry.
But cos I like pictures in my posts, here's more from the archives:

That's Cheetah in her favourite spot for overnight snoozing.

Yes,well. Burma just has to sit on/in something...

Kids, cats, leos

Finally got around to making the girls some more training leotards.

They'd actually managed to start to wear them out just as the leos were just beginning to be a bit small.

Plus Spotlight had nylon lycra on special....

Love the fluoro colours. The girls are really easy to spot when I arrive at the gym to pick them up!

So took photos and transferred them onto the PC, finding some others on the camera while I was at it.

The cats are Burma (she who brings home others' laundry) and Boodle (the youngest, now bringing home rats and skinks).

The kid is Cinnamon, a Nubian cross that my niece Laura is raising ready for school Calf Day mid October.
