Isn't she gorgeous? I can't wait to get to the insides of the piece! The colors are so beautiful!
I did finish the next Toy Chest Etui page for the SAL I'm doing with Loraine. It's a scissor fob/crayon box.
And I got page one done and started page 2 on And They Sinned. Yay!
The tree is really pretty with all its foliage and fruit.
And I couldn't resist starting the next section.
I was lucky enough to win a couple of prizes recently. First, from Patty C. of Hanging on by a Thread, I won a needlebook she made -- it's so pretty! She also included some Bohin needles which I've been wanting to try out, plus some Mill Hill glass beads. Thank you so much, Patty!!!
Isn't that rose amazing?
And from Annie of Annie Bebop's Coloring Book, I won a chart, which I've been wanting forever. Go to the link, and you'll see Annie's finished piece of this design. It's gorgeous!
Thank you for the chart, Annie!
The boy child has been needing a haircut for quite a while now. Unfortunately, I didn't get a pic of him at his shaggy worst. Such long hair!! We determined that the last time he cut his hair was probably around May of last year. lol! But it was an extremely short haircut that time. Well, I guess the boy child likes the idea of annual haircuts. He got it cut very short once again. Sorry for the blurry pic, but you get the idea.
Whenever he cuts his hair this short, I'm sad -- I miss his pretty hair. lol! Well, as he says, it'll grow back. And then I'll be bothering him to get a haircut again. :D
Mia has a favorite toy, which lives on the top of a high chest of drawers in the bedroom. She periodically looks up lovingly at the spot where she knows it's hiding. The other day, Mia went through a long period of looking longingly up at her toy. This involved getting up into what we call her meerkat position, then getting back down into sitting, then up into her meerkat pose, over and over again. I caught her at it to show you her meerkat pose.
Isn't she cute?
Thanks as always for stopping by and saying hi. I hope everyone has a wonderful week!!
Can I have my toy, please?
Quick ETA: The toy that lives on top of the chest of drawers is this "bird" thing made of feathers in a very clever way. It dangles off a long, thin stick. When the owner (DS, father type etc) rushes the toy through the air, it makes a fascinating whirring sound and spins in the air. Mia is endlessly fascinated and tries to catch it etc. BUT she can't play with it on her own -- if she does, she'll break the feathers on the "bird." (The replacement birds are expensive!) Thus, the toy lives up on the chest of drawers for those times we play with her. She loves it so much! Poor thing -- I promise, I don't torture her on purpose. lol!
