Wool longies from the spring craft swap..

yeah, i got lazy.. i bid on a pair of hand knit longies in soysilk & wool for the spring craft swap and won..the momma made them exactly how i wanted and i'm so pleased with them. they are HUGE (my fault.. i was generous with the measurements) but they will fit her for ever, or at least till she is 5. they are absolutely beautifully made and i have to admit, its so nice to admire someone elses work once in a while..thank you again bella babe!
and please excuse my sad model.. it was past naptime..
im still working on my things to send. im so bad...

Magic ball of yarn!

this was the fabulous magic ball of yarn that i recieved in the last swap. it was so much fun to unwrap and i love the wool so much! the outside is crystal palace yarn in the "fern" colourway and the other yarn is Noro. it is so beautiful! i cant wait to make a little felted bag or something.
all of the goodies were a wonderful treat. and of course, ngaio got into it all right away!

a work in progress

this is 5 ours of tattooing and its not finnished yet. there is still another whole fern frond and some fiddleheads that need to be added, as well as a bunch more colour and shading... after 5 hours under the needle it started to get to be a bit much..so we will continue on after this is healed up and maybe add the second part next weekend. this picture looks pretty mucky, but i will get some better pictures up soon.
it was a pretty intense and emotional experience having this done.
i absolutely love it and im so happy matta was the one doing it. she rocks!
i'll elaborate at a later date, right now my baby needs me..
