Framing, a finish, progress, and a visitor
Next up is my new finish I did this for my daughter, I'm going to tuck it into her Easter card. She has a small stuffed mouse that travels all over with her, it's kind of her mascot. Checkers went to college with her, traveled to work at Disneyworld two summers, did an alternate break in the Florida everglades working with alligators, went all over Italy/Spain/France/England when she had a student exchange, and now goes all over the country with her on the circus train. Checkers is quite the well traveled mouse. So, I thought another little mouse would make a fun companion to hang on her wall. This was a flat tuck and design by SanMan Originals done on 28 ct. Monaco and quite fun to do.
I also got quite a bit done on Six Bats and a Witches Hat This piece is moving quite quickly. Of course it helped that I had quite a bit of uninterrupted time to work on it this weekend, since I was working on Cheese earlier in the week, but more on my weekend in a bit.
Finally, here's an update on the newest visitor to be captured for my wildlife in the city pictures.
Isn't he (she?) a cutie. Normally I don't care for possums, their tail is kind of nasty looking. However, I just thought he was so cute hanging out in the bush. When I first went out he was on the ground by my bird feeder, but when he saw me he scooted off into the bush and climbed up the fence. However, he must have felt safe in the bush, as he stayed there while I went in and got my camera and came back out. I was able to get within about 5 ft. of him, with him just looking at me. If I focus on his face, with his little pink nose, I do think he's kind of cute. Needless to say Jaz wanted to come out and say hi too, but I figured that might not go over to well, so Jaz had to stay inside until he finally ambled off (she was not to pleased with that).
As to my weekend, I got quite a bit of stitching in as I was at Camp Stitchalot this past weekend, which was hosted by Stitches n Things. I had a wonderful time, lots of chatting, munching, stitching, and laughs. I'll post some pictures of my lovely new stitchy stash later, as well as tell a little about all we did. In closing, thanks to all of you for your continued good wishes for Jaz. Her leg seems to be doing much better, the bump has gone down quite a bit. It still has to stay wrapped until it is totally gone, but it seems that with just a little more time she'll be back to normal with no more medicine or anything needed.
