(Going clockwise) The flamingo is from Martha Ess' Critters On The Block, the gecko is Pamela's gecko from Jane's pattern pages, the lovely swan is Mark Myers', the cocoa bunny is also from Mark, the kitty I do believe is from an old, old Workbasket, and the pig bookmark is from Dianna Stevens' Animal Bookmarks: A Tatted Zoo.
The gecko was definitely my favorite to do, but the beads that should have gone along the spine weren't cooperating so I omitted them after cutting the mistakes out FIVE times!
I also received a belated Christmas present today. After months of whining and moaning about what a piece of crap my camera is, Santa swung back by and left me THIS under the tree. It may not be the fanciest, most expensive camera, but I love it and it's the thought that counts. And I've been playing, oh yes, I have been playing all day! Thanks, Santa!
edited to add: I overlooked a package! Said package contained a 4GB memory card and a carrying case. The card was promptly inserted into the camera and has room for nearly 1,500 pictures and the new camera is now safe and snug in its new case. A good day it was, a good day.
