Flying Visit

I thought I would quickly drop in and share some show and tell and my latest art finish.
Firstly my friend Sandra has this Christmas beauty ready to hand is so big it was hard to get it in the picture.
It is so beautiful and such a lot of work has gone into it.
My little Gingies seem to be stealing some hearts at the moment as Illene has made my table topper too. Thanks so much for sharing it Illene xx
I have been doing a lot of quiet stitching but I will share that next time.
My little cheeky meerkat "The Lookout" thought I would show you my finish....very pleased with him. It's about 11 1/2 inches x 16 1/2 inches and I used a Pan pastel background and Polychroma coloured pencils..
Halfway through..
Mr R. took this photo at the Dubbo Zoo but I have tried to make his surrounds a bit more natural.
The finish...
This little bloke never shirked his duty for a second!
Must fly! Have a lovely day,
Namaste and Blessings,
Michelle xxx
