Well I have recovered from the foodfest that was Mr. Mimi's brithday, wiped the cake crumbs from my ever expanding chops and have been stitching like the wind ever since!
This latest piece is an Etsy pet portrait commission from the divinely wonderful GiddyGirlie.,
cLovley lady, fellow Virgo, crafting Queen and *current record holder of the Worlds largest Flickr photostream...which of course gave me plenty of good stuff to rummage about in! :)
The main painting is of Monkey and Ruckus, Mia's two gorgeous pussy cats; you can read Mia's very moving post about Monkey here, but I should warn you that if your anything like me and will cry at the theme tune from Born Free, you will be a snivvling, sobbing heap...like I was!
I had access to Mia's frankly magnificent photostream and a few wee guidelines as to favourite things (both Mia's and the furry chaps!)and my most favourite thing of all...a free rein...huzzah!
So without further ado I present...
Meet the boys! Monkey, all soft marmaladey oranges with hints of lilac and Ruckus with his soft bluey grey fur and pretty green eyes which have spotted something over there!
And here they are again!
See Monkey all surrounded by love with *millions of silky red stitchy hearts, one with wee bat wings which is something special to Mr.&Mrs Girly!
Silky shiny undergrowth and up pops Ruckus who has obviously spotted something in the leaferies!
A trail of stitchy golden stars has been left behind by wee Tinkerbell as she flew through the Oingo Boingo lyrics:
With sadness in my heart and joy in my mind
I thought about the ghost that we left behind.
With everyone around telling us what to do
With deafening sound whisper I love you
"Browar!" says Monkey..."Wow!" replies Ruckus!
Nestled in the corner are Ruckus headgear of choice, his wee pumpkin hat and Monkey's favourite Incredible Hulk with french knot bubblegum eyes ice lolly!
The chaps are currently winging their way to mum in the USA so I am in my usual state of postal stress disorder so positive vibes that they get ther safely, speedily and wont be a disappointment in the flesh! :)
And a big THANK YOU to Mia for trusting me with her precious boys! x
Once again I cannot tell you how much I love doing this sort of work...just gimme a few guidelines and I'm off for a rummage around in your life! So if you have a furry, scaley, feathery or even *imaginary chum that you would like festooned with stitchyness you know where to find me!
Now can't sit around here all day blogging about with you lot, I'm off to do something with a *bear cub and piglet...
Thanks for droppin' by! x;)
