happiness riches...





I have the 'day off'. No appointments, or places to be, so I sat down and finished this...so glad to have finally finished this creature...poor ami lemur got left at this point for far too long.

Not very dignified is it? It was so much harder to create than the earlier ones...

I don't usually choose black yarn and found it's really tricky to differentiate the stitches and follow them-its just one dark shadowy thing and I had to guess where to put the hook through. He is definitely going to be a one-off, although there's no saying what other colours a crochet lemur could be, is there?

Now I have to share three lovely things...one was having one of my sons featured in a local art exhibition held at the Redcliffe art gallery. The artist photographed, sketched and recorded many Moreton bay locals to create a large montage. This photo of my cherished littly melts my heart even more than usual and I must go back and listen out for his voice...


Number 2 on the happiness list was recieving this gorgeous softy from the
earthly creative maker, Rebecca.


We were swap partners in the clip cafe swap challenge and we were totally rapt to recieve this beautiful peaceful looking seahorse.



He is hanging on our bathroom door and faces the kitchen and has such a calm look about him. Rebecca is very eco concious and she picked out some special vintage buttons, because she knows how much I love them, the toy is even filled with a special non toxic corn based filling! Impressive eco cred and beautiful to boot! :o) Thanks sooo much!!! We LOVE him.




And happy moment number 3 was being very much featured and thanked on one of my all time favourite blogs by beautiful Alice...her blog is a cheerful, generous place where there's always a bright and beautiful photo and a story or two...make yourself a cuppa and then head to
crochet with Raymond and settle in for a lovely long read...

A very uplifting post with all of those lovely things happening for you :)

I love your lemur. I think he looks just like an ami lemur should look. Easily distinguished by that fabulous tail, big ears and big eyes. Well done for seeing him through to finish!

Lovely!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you! you are so sweet..... I have just returned from my few days away and am catching up on your lovely posts and got such a surprise when I read this one XXXXX
Your badges in the post before are just beautiful, I love the second one with the beady button, and great stuff with the making of your stand.....
I used to display things on flat zen rocks when I did markets, and wouldn't your nest brooches and birds look great on a piece of tree with lots of little branchey bits???
Loving the nature, and your moonlight sonata!
