This n that

First, Sara sent me a much better picture of Otto.....which she loves!  The look on her face when she opened her eyes (I had her close her eyes and hold her hands out and then set him between them) was speechless!  She really likes him and plans on hanging him in her office.
Next, I wanted to share:
This Charley Harper design was a present from DH for Christmas.....He is going to be part of a set of three that I plan to stitch for the four season room.  He is a lot smaller than Brrdd Bath, but will go nicely in the trio.

Then, a couple of presents I bought myself this last week:

Aren't they fantastic?!  These are both by Orna Willis and they are in her Etsy store!    
The needle case design comes with a button threads, fabric and all.  The Needle Art kit comes in several colors and of course, I wanted blue so she made one up for me and posted it to the store showed up so very quickly!  Thanks Orna!

Otto has become quiet the gentleman since he got his new wool suit and fancy bell necktie. Hard to remember that he started out as such an evil-eyed troublemaker. It is nice to know that he is now doing so well.

Glad to hear Otto has an appreciative new home ..... otherwise I would have offered :)

What fun new (and old) things, Pat! I am glad you treated yourself to some Orna designs. I think she is wildly talented. And of course the little red bird is delightful! More goodies for us to watch you stitch--isn't that a good way to start 2011?

Happy New Year.

Otto will be a source of comment for years to come, I am sure. For the next few days, I will share some gifts that I so appreciate, along with my stitchig!

I was driving to Napa on my way to my local ANG meeting. As I passed a field of sheep I just knew I saw Otto! Then I realized it couldn't be him! :)
