Clue Revealed...

The clue in the last picture was Minnie Mouse, yes we had again gone to Disney. It is the only place on earth that I can find all kinds of stuff with my name on it already. I love it!
 Here is my first try at a selfie.
Even the rain at Disney is fun, you get to wear Mickey Mouse ponchos! 
We started calling this No-Splash Mountain, it was dry! They were working on it, so no splash indeed. I did get to ride the train at Thunder Mountain, wohoo what a ride!  
We visited Animal Kingdom and this big fella was lounging and soaking up the warm sunshine.

And of course Woody made me feel like a true nature explorer. We have the same hats.
 This was another great trip, it's a shame we don't have little ones to go with, but acting like a kid is just as good.
 I did get to do a little stitching, mostly on the plane rides there and back. This design was originally a painting done by an artist named Annie Lee. Her pieces have also been made into figurines of which I have several (see tab above). This one is call "You Hungery?"  Here's the figurine and the picture of what it should look like.
And this is what I have done so far.

It's being stitched on a 28 ct evenweave from M.C.G. Textiles (which looks like a painting canvas) with DMC flosses, some are blended for texture and shading.  This is the only one of her pieces done into a cross stitch chart.  I would love to do more designs and match them up with the figurines I have. 
Well that's about all for now, thank you  for stopping by. I need to go and make some wonderful little xxs.

I've been to Disneyworld over 12 times...I never get tired of it. And with the new additions...I can't wait to see it again. Great progress on your ladies. They're cute as can be.

Disney! Such fun -- I remember going to Disneyland in California when I was eleven -- definitely a trip to remember. And I know what you mean about not being able to find your name on "stuff" -- always such a bummer for my daughter. However, I would think that you could find a lot of things at Disney!

A beautiful stitching project you have started, made me smile.

Haha, Disneyland is made for a lady called Minnie!

I love the stitching that goes with your figurines, they are a perfect match.
