Dearest Sister often got the job of getting me out of bed, especially as we got older. I remember insisting that I needed a warm washcloth to wipe the sleep out of my eyes in order to awaken properly. It is a wonder she tolerated my ridiculousness...
This little coloring book is one of twelve(!) that I bought on ebay some time back. The auction was for six of the 12 page books and the price was low. I paid at auction's end and waited. And waited.
After a couple of weeks, I contacted the seller to see when the books had been shipped and the seller was embarrassed to find that they hadn't been. So, to make up for the delay, she sent me 12 (!) instead of six. I didn't really need six, and I sure didn't need 12, but they are fun little books! I think they must have been promotional give-aways. They are just five inches wide by seven inches tall.
Some of the pictures are delightfully odd pairings of animals with....stuff!
This one I call "Pig with Tambourine" (and looooong curly tail!) Very light on her (?) feet, though!
Anyway, you can see the rest of the pages in my flikr set here.
I reduced the originals by about half and I think I might try one or two of them as embroidery designs on a larger sized onesie - maybe a twelve or eighteen month size.
But, I have other projects that are in line already and xmas is around the corner. I have just two months for gifts that need to be shipped!
(Tomorrow is the official one year mark for me! If you haven't yet, go here to leave a comment to be entered in the celebratory give-away! Winners will be announced on Friday!)
