WINNER! WINNER! I'M NO THINNER!

Well hello my bloggy chums I hope you are all feeling as magnficent as you are looking today? Have you been working out? Well you've done summin', cos you look you gorgeous! :)



Well I'm pleased to report there's a definate whiff of spring in the air round these parts at last, the garden is poking up all sorts of interesting things that I don't remember putting in, the blackbirds are in fine voice and the kitties are shoving all manner of things through the catflap!

And talking o shoving things through *catflaps, I shall now announce the winner of the Mother of All Budgies giveaway...DRUM RRRRROLL.....


IHANNA


Huzzarghhhh and congratulations!

...*altho I'm sure posty will deliver to your door :)

Commiserations to y'all who took the time to visit and put up with the drivveling here, as much as I enjoy holding a giveaway I do end up feeling immensely guilty for everyone who doesnt get picked so I am sending out some good MimiLovin' to everyone through the screen to you right now!

Now no sulking cos I've still got stuff to show you, so before you go and throw darts at my picture here's a wee fluffy bunny to soften your heart! :)


Meet Bobbins, fluffy bunny chum to the divine Shannon, groovy chick and stitching Queen behind divine pop art portraits including amongst others, Salvador Dali who I also happen to be the proud owner of!


(YOINK! Photo courtesy of SKG)

I had a few guidelines of Shannon's Mr.B's favourite things, (including Tonka toys!) and I was pretty much left to my own devices, huzzah, which is my cue for a good old rifle through photostreams and blogs for inspirational bits and pieces!


So here's an inquisitive Bobbins hopping up to say Hello to you all! The blue lily and red poinsetta are based on Shannon's tattoo's which celebrate her children's (Max and Molly) birthday's



The words spiralling around are from Max:
"Bobbins is a bunnnneeeeee!"
And in the corner one of Bobbins and Max's favourite toys, a big yellow Tonka truck!



Once again, if you would like to commission a piece of your own, I do keep these things just the right side of stalking, so fear not, you wont find your ATM number and medical records festooned with beads and Engelbert Humperdinck lyircs....that's not to say I wouldn't do that if you asked me too...just drop me a line or head on over to the MimiLove Etsy Emporium

So coming up in next months thrilling edition: work begins on the Idiom/MimiLove/Royal Wedding collaboration mash up, a wee sleepy Bull Dog heading for USA a tiddly kitty painting heading for a lady round the corner!

I'm also taking part in Wayne Wolfson's" Tonk Tonk Toccato's World Tour"...here he is helping me with my threads...if you are a fellow stitcher, like your threads organized and are of a vaguely nervous dispostion, look away NOW! :)


I'm hoping Tonk-Tonk will set to work sorting while I nap, so pass me eyemask and I will see y'all next month!


Big loves to you all my homies and thank you for droppin' by!
