Here for the Jewelry GIVEAWAY? Scroll down to the previous post. Remember - closes Sept 3!
It is crazy hot here today, with a humidex expected to reach over 40C (105F). I know I won't be upstairs long, as the mugginess will drive me to the air-conditioned bliss downstairs.
I just wanted to share a few things with my lovely readers.
First, a preview pic of the first piece I have completed for one of my partners (lolablueocean) in the Flickr Hoop Up embroidery swap.
Foxy is a sweet lil guy...sometimes. That glint in his eye tells me that you MAY have to sleep with one eye open. You could find yourself on the pointy end of his marshmallow-roasting stick!
Foxy started his life as a bear, but I soon discovered that I did not have the color I wanted to stitch him with. I did have this lovely burnt orange color, so a few line changes and Voila! A fox he was!
I will be posting my original pattern for this piece here on my blog very soon - for free, of course. Foxy also has a creepy-cute sibling who will also be posted. She just needs a few touches added.
Next up, a photograph that just makes me smile. This was staged and shot by my friend, AlwaysInspired. Looks like this lil fella was caught in a private moment. I had no idea that gnomes pooped glitter. I will never look at my Stickles the same ever again!
And finally, I must share this video parody with you all.
I have watched it at least 10 times and it STILL makes me giggle and awwww.
It is a parody of the Eminem/Rhianna song/vid for Love the Way You Lie (which will NOT make you giggle & awwww). The lyrics are so fun, and the little girl looks EXACTLY like my little niece Alyssa when she was 7 (so much so that I had my sis and Alyssa view the vid and they both freaked out)
best line: Did you just call me a doo-doo pie? That's all right. I know you are, but what am I?"
