Miss Minnie...

My very cool & talented friend Laura made me the coolest gift I have ever had made for me...introducing Miss Minnie the Guinea, I named her...she made it all herself, it is knitted from mohair...Miss Minnie looks so real & feels so good, I love her...I am amazed at how nice Laura is & even more at how talented & creative she is...this gift made me smile & cry, I so miss Laura... Over the weekend we took Hubby's new used Prius on a road trip to Reno, did a bit of relaxing, gambling & antiquing where I bought some skeleton keys as the ones I got last year at the Oxford Antique Market are almost all gone...we also saw the show Menopause which was awesome...

hope you had a good weekend too...life is good...

Hi Jelveh:
Oh, my goodness!!!!! When I first looked at the picture, I actually thought that it was a real Guinea pig. That is some fantastic work and so absolutely adorable!!! I love it!
For the first time ever, the show that I did this past weekend was terrible. I will never do that show again! It was in a rural area, had all of 14 booths with "stuff". I felt like I was at a garage sale. It was supposed to be from 10-5. People started packing up at 12:30. I was packed and gone by 2:30. However, it is OK because I learned something. "Don't ever do that show again, Ginny!!!!!"
We are gong to my mother's Saturday to spend Mothers Day weekend with her.
Enjoy your week, sweet Jelveh!
Ginny

Hey Beady, yes she is so very cute, I have to fluff out her hair more, she is so cuddly...and yes laura is awesome is so many ways more than her creative side...

Sue I think all of miss minnie knitted with mohair, she is so yum, congrats on your 10th grandchild, that is awesome...

OH Ginny girl she sure looks real, I sat her next to Sammy and they look good together...that show sounds horrid, I dont do shows for many reasons but that is one of them...I did once I think about a million years ago and that was the last one...have a great Mother's day at your moms and happy mother's day to you girl...

What an amazing Guinea, Laura is so clever, multi-mulit talanted! Minnie is the best type of pet, one you can love and snuggle that does not poop on you and that you can always travel with x

Glad you like her, Jelveh! I'll come out and see you, Miss Minnie, Bella and Martin (of course) just as soon as I've saved up enough dosh.

And thanks for all the lovely comments everyone! :o)

Hey Mel, I know she is so sweet, every time I walk by my desk she is there looking at me, I think she is real...I was going to put her next to my kiln, but now I am just taking her with me where ever I end up being in the house for a while...

Laura girl, I love her, she is so sweet and the guest room is waiting...miss you tons, you are the best...thanks so much for my Miss Minnie...
