Karma, Karma, Karma, Karma....

....chameleon, chameleon-oh-on!!SING IT!! You know you want to! :)



HAPPY NEW YEAR MY BLOGGY CHUMS!!!
Gordon Bennett 2016; nary seems like yesterday when me & mum nearly burnt the house down with our Blue Peter advent crown; a health n safety monstrosity involving wire coat hangers, tinsel and proper flaming candles and spent half hour gagging on the glue from the DIY paper chains…ahh happy lead paint loaded toys days!

Well I hope you all had a wonderful and peaceful Christmas.  I did request a new sat nav off Santa this year on account of the fact mine has a severe attitude problem and I'm fairly convinced is programmed by a surly 18yr old who really can't be arsed.

Mainly cos it routinely dumps me 4 miles from any given destination with a vague 'that'll do', leaving me to grab a passing granny and hope to God she knows where she is (fortunately the most recent one in a Morrison's carpark did, but it did involve me waiting for her to load up her shopping and then follow her as my destination was just past her mum's house...bless!)

To ask for directions back to home is way too much too hope for as I clearly know where I've been so should bloody well know how to get back.  Suffice it to say Santa obviously mis-read my vague *I would like a new sat nav" hint and got me a fluffy dressing gown instead...although in all fairness I probably do spend more time in that than the car, so swings and roundabouts....

Anyhow! Himself has recovered and the bruising is fading and most of what I got him is currently on eBay so all in that counts as a fairly normal Christmas for us.

Right witter over lets start the new year with a reptile eh!  I bring you a Karma Chameleon! :)


I've had this in my head for a while now...our little green chum sits a-top a huge stitchy “Karma” which nearly didn’t get finished on account of the fact stitching through canvas with glittery metallic thread is the sewing equivalent of scraping nails down a blackboard.



Keeping him company is a big fat jolly Buddha nestling in a glorious pink lotus stitchy flower. He's holding a tiddly Peace symbol in one hand and tiny glittery beads in his other.




A wee grasshopper in case he gets peckish and shedloads of leaves, grasses and so forth.  A little John Lennon portrait stitch sketch nestles in his curly tail with the lyrics from the fabulous Instant Karma: "And we all shine on. Like the moon and the stars and the sun!"
Also features the Karma symbol and little glittery stars.


Choc full on teeny-weeny stitches, a positive cascade of leaves, French knots and tonnes of texture, despite the teeth being on edge through most of it, I really had fun working on him!



If you fancy a bit of reptilian nonsense to brighten up your wall prints of this are available; will be posted via Royal Mail though, I can’t deliver in person as the sat nav will be off having a fag.

Righto I’ve eaten my body weight in trifle, the dekkies are back in the loft and I’ll be hoovering up frigging lametta for the next 6 months so I shall bid you farewell for now and try to muster up another post soon! :)

Stay groovy my Bloggy chums!

Big Mimi Loves to you and thank you for dropping’ by!
