A moment of panic when I realised that the back of the fabric was just as pretty as the front. Aargh!
I used it anyway and made three little creatures, a bit bit like bears, a bit like grins, but not quite either.
Why does everything I make lately come with a scarf? I don't know, but tiny scarfs sure are cute.
Uh-huh. What would you call them?
(ps. thanks for all your lovely nesting comments, I feel a sense of comradeship that is helping, it really is! I'll be back soon, I think)
Oh I'm super excited about it. A place to share ideas and inspirations, talk about crafty things and discuss issues and new perspectives. A place to get advice, find out things, and see what other people think. A place to find out what's new and coming up and what you can get involved in, a place to meet new peeps and make new friends. Yes. I'm excited. If you haven't already, go join now.

They're much much smaller than Leon, I used up the leftover fur and felt and had more fun embroidering little tattoos.

Comfy and cozy Prairie Boots will get you through the coldest of winters. Turn them down for ankle length or leave them up to keep your shins warm. You don’t need to seam – just add funky buttons and they are ready to wear. Warning: it is so fun to watch them take shape on your needles that you may become addicted. But that’s okay, they make great gifts!

Meanwhile, it's rice and beans for me for a few weeks- but aren't they lovely?

I haven't read the instruction manual yet, I'm a fan of 'auto' settings, and this one does them well. To get me in the groove I'm going to join up with Jess from A Life So Peachy and do a Photo a Day in August (started by The Byron Life). I'm a little late, but consider this Day 4.
While I was roaming around blogs being inspired, I ran into Amelie and Atticus, so I'm going to join their photo challenge too!
And I'm still finishing off shots for this art project / exhibition co-op thingy (yes, that is the scientific term..)
When will they get around to inventing cameras for eyes? When I was a kid I would imagine that, and whenever I saw something beautiful or interesting I would blink hard and go 'CLICK!'
