Tuesday Treasure and a Finish

Melody is our wonderful hostess of Tuesday Treasure.... and you can link up HERE - or just have a read and meet some other people.....

Now you all know I am fond of lizards...... this includes chameleons....

so I was delighted when I was this little fella came to live with me
(gift from favoured MIL)


I'm sorry the pictures are a bit blurry - I fail at close-ups
(I promise it is not because of wine!)


  The top of the container is about 4" so he's quite a dinky little chap

open up and there is more.....



and more


hand made with fine wire and beads....

the wire has started rusting a bit so I am not using them for anything but decor....
and Widget can play with them ...


.... and this is the bag I have now finished using the stitcheries from HERE

this bag is 6" square 


and here it is folded out

the pocket reverses in folding
It actually was supposed to have the 'Just for You' on the outside of the little bag....
~ next time I'll get it right! ~

Another UFO from out the cupboard.... yay

G'day

Hello Fiona,

Lucky Lizard to find your home. Was that made in Africa. I think I purchased something like that many years ago. Congrats on the bag finish. Looks great.
Happy days.

It looks 'right' enough to me! And I love the lizard. I think they are cute too. But not snakes. Never. ever.

Your little lizard boxes are too cute - great job on the bag, it so pretty and cheery! BTW, your gift seems to have brought spring to me - the trees are started to get buds and I'm seeing some green on them, yay!
