This is my first ever blog post from my "new" Mac. (I have been a PC user both at work and at home for ten years. It has taken me weeks to get it all working, and I am far from used to it yet.) Above: I have also been making this mortadella-like lady for a while, in between other things. I would like to give her a nice belt, in the way that salami often has, but I am too scared to go to the Vic Market for research purposes in case I just buy lots of salami and eat it. I would also be interested to know if anyone thinks that maybe she doesn't actually need the belt.
Above: Hungry cats from a book of Victorian games that I bought at that nice second hand bookshop in Northcote recently.

And a pipe mirror, this time with bonus smoke! Soon it will be finished and in the shop.

Safe and happy holidays to all. See you next year!

She does not need a belt.. But then again it might look real pretty.

What! I want those naughty cats!! And too gorgeous is your work- I love Ms Mortedella! Nah she doesn't need to be belted but hey it could be fun consuming the research. And congratulations for the apple change over ... you'll get use to it quickly and be another converted soul!

Hi Kitty -- thank you for your comment! Looks like I have two votes saying "not necessary"!

Hi Sandra W -- thanks for your comment too -- I will go and do some research just to make sure, it might be a fun day out either way. I will do a post on those cats and their friends from that book soon -- you might just like it.

Hmm...she could go without the belt. But it might just be the perfect finishing touch. You could tie a little string thingy around and try it out first?
That be a very fine new mirror!
All the best to you in the new year, Sandra! I hope it's a safe and prosperous one :)

Hi Rigel and Thea -- thank you so much for your wishes. I hope that you both have a very happy and healthy year in 2011. I look forward to seeing the fruits of your creative endeavours!

I like the idea of just trying out a little belt, Rigel, good idea -- thank you. :)
