At last

At last I am snatching a few minutes to update my blog. Have been so very busy with house redecorating and kitchen renovations that time has just flown by since I came back from my US trip. I enjoyed myself thoroughly there as always. The doll below was my challenge doll for CIFI. The theme for this year's challenge was Enchanted Forest. My doll is an exotic bird couldn't think of an original name for him so I just named him Exoteeque lol! He is the early bird of the enchanted forest who catches the worms but he does not eat them. He just keeps them as his pets. I didn't think I would win a ribbon as there were some amazing dolls so when I did get an award I was thunder struck.

 Here is a closer view of him
 A closer view of the little worm wondering if he will be swallowed up soon lol!

 He is a happy little camper.
I will visit your blogs soon but at the moment my life is a big rush so do forgive me for not visiting them yet.

  12. Hi Shashi,

    Wow, congratulations on winning that ribbon!
    Your Bird doll is amazing. Love the little worm too. :)

  13. congratulations Shashi! What a cute idea you had with this one.... love your sense of humour. The look on the worm's face is priceless......

    yep..... life seems to get in the way of blogging every so often for sure. Maybe it is just more so in the summer...for me it is. There is just too much to accomplish...or try to accomplish it seems...... and time whizzes past.

    When winter sets in...I will have more time to do a few things and get back to blogging too..... but, for now... golf, gardening and today I have lots of branches that we cut off the base of our huge old spruce to try to cut smaller and to tie up ... hopefully the garbage guys will take some of them away......they are getting pretty picky.

  14. What an adorable bird - I love it. sounds like you have been as busy as I...

  15. Congratulations, Shashi! Wonderful doll and I like that he doesn't eat those worms. ;)
