Spike is English embroidery

That double whammy of Once More with Feeling followed straight off with Tabula Rasa - wow, you can't beat it, can you? (Unless it is with Our Mrs Reynolds followed by Jaynestown)

I really should stop making embroideries, but... it was raining over the weekend so I needed something to do with my hands to justify a mammoth Supernatural session.

Plus this one makes me giggle.

Guinea pig prison

So, the pigs have their own little lino-floored cubby area to play in now which is great, but I needed something to stop them from wandering off around the rest of the lounge when I wasn't around. Until now I have been using a bag that contains a tent I once bought with the intention of camping a lot. It did the job but just looked a bit messy.

 So I made a little barrier, nothing fancy. With it this way it looks like the pigs are telling me that I can't pass, rather than the other way around. Who knows, maybe I *am* the balrog.

It has multiple colours!

Firefly - still flying

Simon and Mal in the first episode of Firefly:
- Are you always this sentimental?
- I had a good day.
-You had the Alliance on you, criminals and savages... Half the people on the ship have been shot or wounded including yourself, and you're harboring known fugitives.
-Well, we're still flying.
-That's not much.
-It's enough.

This hoop is destined for someone going through a really hard time right now. I just wanted to remind him that some days you get to take down the alliance and play with kickass swords. And some days are not that good, but you are still flying, and - on those days - perhaps that is enough.

Wonder Woman handbag

When I was unpacking I discovered this hideous pink bag with ruffles and diamantes on (I took pictures to show you but my phone seems to have gobbled them up). I have no idea why I had it and was going to throw it straight in the bin. But then curiosity as to how bags are made got the better of me and I ripped all the hideous pink material off.

This is the bag now!

Ooo check me out with my little handbag!
