Our first BOM (Blessing of the Month) will begin this Thursday, January 1st. Each blessing will have my Folk Art Fusion with the reverse wool applique and some stitchery too. I'm so excited to show you I can hardly wait!
In addition to offering the pattern as a PDF instant download, I will also be offering COMPLETE kits to include a full paper pattern with color photos. The kit will contain ALL THE SUPPLIES (except scissors) you need to make the project including the needle. I will have more on this Thursday.
I wanted to share this beautiful ornament my friend Jules of Needle and Pen made for me. It is hand painted and embroidered. Look at the toys in the sack. Jules is a woman of many talents and she always amazes me with what she creates. She is truly gifted.
I also wanted to share this ornament I made for my mailman, Adrian. When he gave me the three ceramic rabbits his mother had made, he told me he collected eagles. I made a little mental note that I would make him an eagle for Christmas. He told me he wasn't going to put it on his tree, but instead hang it at the door where he keeps his keys so he could see it every day. I guess he liked it. ;)
I have received many requests for an update on Sabrina. What can I say except that this little girl has me wrapped around her tail. I simply adore this little cat with one blind eye. Behind her are her mice. I call her a "Mouseketeer" as she only likes to play with mice. These mice are her favorites. I guess because they have bellies full of catnip. Needless to say, she has a bunch of them. ;)
Sabrina was spayed in October. She enjoys laying in the window and watching the birds, squirrels and other critters outside. I tried to take her on the back porch one day and she freaked out, meowed and meowed and pawed at the door to go back in. I guess she was scared I was going to put her back outside. I promised her she would never have to live outside again.
Instead of living under an abandoned house and sleeping in dirt, she now sleeps on my side of our king size bed during the day and in the bend of my knees at night. She wakes me every morning around 6:00 by standing on me, kneading her feet on me and purring. If I don't get up right away to get her breakfast, she pounces on my feet and tries to attack them under the covers. Crazy cat!
As for Harrington? Well you know, he's just a cute boy. He can't help it, he's cute and he's doing great!
Over Christmas, I thought about the story of Rudolph and the Island of Misfit Toys. How the toys (with disabilities) all wanted to have a forever home and someone to love them. I thought about Harrington with his wonky ear, Hannah with her illness and Sabrina with her blind eye. My little bunch of homeless misfits who to me, couldn't be more perfect. My life is blessed because of them and their home will always be with me.
So, here's to our new adventure and many blessings in 2015.
Light, love and hugs to you,
Michelle the Bunnies and Sabrina too!
