    Heheh…is that the new wee hat you’ve stitched up on Mr. Choccie Lips’ head? Cute and imaginative, Mike!! Well done!

  • Many thanks, Deb! The wee hat is a little decorative nest I’ve had for ages, with rolled up tin foil as the horns. I might find other uses for it. Easter’s coming…..!

    Hehe what a great image, nice work Mike.

  • Thanks so very much, Lynne! Glad I raised a wee smile.
    This was done in my studio – the kitchen counter, covered with a ratty old piece of black velvet and with 2 LED torches for lighting. No expense spared!
