I’ve been working on my bestie’s birthday present since January. Cross-stitch is easy and fun, but it takes foreeeeeever. But I finally finished it, just in time for her birthday, and I’m very happy with the results. The cherries are a Cath Kidston design from her book “Stitch!”, but I did everything else freehand to my own design. Oh, and she calls me Squirrel. ...

This painted figurine is awesome. I love how the plain paint highlights the shape of the bird. I’m definitely going to try this myself as soon as I find a good ceramic animal.

We finally have a bookcase big enough for all our books. Which makes me very happy, but Tom not quite so happy, as he keeps having to ask me where books are and I have to say “in the orange section”. I know grouping by subject makes more sense, but it’s just not as pretty…

Website of the day. So many amazing designs of, well, everything.
Have a pretty day, goody!– Tom’s half-asleep send off to me this morning :)
I am going to start a band and call it “Squaliform”, because it means “shaped like a shark”. Awesome.
Funnyordie is my new favourite go-to for procrastination. Particularly Haus of Gaga (Part 1) from MTV
