PhotoHunt "Fluffy" & Eggie Progress

Well I was going to blog last night, but I went to a surprise party for my Takewon-Do instructor in celebration of him receiving his Masters back in November.  We had such a good time, that people finally started to leave around 1am!  So it was a little too late for blogging by the time we got home.

This week's PhotoHunt theme is "Fluffy"


I came across this cute, fluffy little fellow (or is it gal?) in June while I was taking pictures in my friend Sheila's garden up in Georgian Bay.


Yesterday I finally managed to wrap up the backstitching on page 5 of Enchantment of Winter.  I've now moved onto page 8, there is a heck of a lot of gold confetti in this one!  Gonna take awhile!


I had stayed up late stitching Friday night, and was looking forward to a nice sleep in Saturday morning.  Well between my friends starting to text message, Todd getting up and not being quiet about it, and Hunter and Zeus deciding it would be a good idea to fight/play with me in the bed I gave up.  However I was treated to a lovely sunrise, I wish I had gotten it a few minutes earlier!  You can see the light shining through the ice on the branches of the willow as we had freezing rain (again) on Friday.


Seeing as its been so mild, we had a lovely set of icicles growing on the house, and I got this shot just as the afternoon sunshine was hitting them.

  I took this portrait of all of our Black Belts two weeks ago, little did my instructor know it was a gift for him.. we made him think it was his idea!

Congratulations to your instructor on his Masters! An amazing accomplishment. Your egg is beautiful! Although mine has been told it has to wait in line, every time I see yours, it starts screaming a little louder.

I don't think I'd want to get close enough to that fluff to see if it is a boy or a girl!
That stitching is amazing!
See you next Saturday ~ and bring something 'flat'!

Your Enchantment is so awesome. You must be getting so anxious to get it done. Love the photo of the sunset. I'll bet it was stunning in real life.

Kathy Ellen said...

Fluffy is adorable. Your stitching on 'Enchantment of Winter' is exquisite!

Since I love snow in winter, seeing the beautiful sunrise shining through the ice covered trees, is a wonderful sight to behold. We have had very little snow in New England this year, and I am feeling a little snow sadness this year. Most people would say "that is crazy", but having grown up in "snow country", I miss not seeing much snow this year.

Blessings to you!

Hugs,

EOW looks amazing. I love the picture of the sunrise, although the icicle made me shiver just looking at them!

Ewa said...

Nice! whenever I see pictures like that in the blogosphere I'm so baffled. I live in California where we whine if it's 40 degrees.

Autumn said...
