“Thousands of Cats Wearing Trousers and Hats”

I am on the look out for craft fairs now as I have a nice stock of brooches to sell. I am hoping I will be able to get a stall at the next Homemade in LeedsĀ  – will let every one know the dates if I do.

I am also experimenting with new neck foxes – one of these accidentally turned into a dragony alligator thing; I will embroider some nice scales on him.

Dong

Hello there. I’m in Vietnam, spending lots of my hard earned Dong.

I drew this in china but had to use it as an emergency tip money card for our ‘tour guide.’ Who knows what she will have thought of it… it is a drawing of ‘Pixiu’ the Horse Dragon; he is very lucky in China as he has a huge fat behind which means ‘nothing is getting out’ i.e, none of your money is going any where it shouldn’t.

I am currently drawing a lot around South East Asia and hope to do some more scribblings in Borneo in the new year…

Hopefully some of this should be shown in January in an exhibition starting the 25th of January. I hope! hope hope!

What else?

No, I don’t know either.
