Have Bike will travel!

Mavis has her bike at long last so she can now cycle to the shops with Nikki who is rather precariously balanced on the back!
He is still waiting for a basket to sit in for the front of the bicycle.
Whhheeeee...mind out the way, no brakes haha.

Here are the three Mavis's together. One watercolour (which is a bit faint due to the lighting) One redwork embroidery and one 3-d dolly. I had a lot of fun putting them all together. I have to admit I didn't make the bike, it was purchased in Wilkinsons (my new favourite shop which unfortunately we don't have up here in our corner of Scotland so I only get to visit when I'm away from home).

Closer view of the redwork......


and the painting....


Here is a sneek peek at something different I'm working on.....
More will be revealed at a later date if all goes well.

Here is Wee Archie (name change from Teddy) inspecting the grass that Nikki recommended
He can't believe how soft it is and how you can dig holes in it/eat it/roll on it/jump and run on it and thinks that it should be in the house instead of a carpet!

Nikki wholeheartedly agrees as she keeps stepping in little puddles and unmentionables and knows she didn't do that when she was a pup as she always did it on the big grass thing outside.  She is a big girl now and here she is proudly posing with her certificates and rosettes when she was younger.

  8. Mavis certainly looks like she's enjoying herself on the bike. Love idea to show the three Mavis'.
    Who is the new lady? Given the large hair style, could she be a rather grand lady, perhaps.
    Archie looks like he's having fun and what a superstar Nikki is xx
