Little Green Lizard....


Yesterday morning I had a wonderful surprise just before I left for work...there was a hammering at the door (no niceties from our postman!) and a big parcel was handed to me. Inside was a cornucopia of delights! Laura (bead artist extraordinaire) is moving house and had sent me lots of craft bits and pieces that she no longer needed.....but that I certainly can use. I'm always amazed at the generosity of my blogging friends - thank you Laura!

So after a long day at work, I was finally able to come home and play with my new toys! I found some tiny green beads amongst the many and made a little green lizard and tested my new glasses to the max - no eyestrain, yay!



But he was so small, he needed a home....so I dug out my felt, made him a banana leaf to sit on (strengthened by the stiffener fabric in my new treasure trove) and sewed a brooch backing on - tadaaah!! It was great to make something not knitted and to take a break from painting just for one day. He'll be going onto my Etsy shop later...
