Had a "divil" of a job trying to get the leaves done right. Finally managed it by making a 1/2 stitch back over the leaf so that the next piece of the branch could carry on from the original base of the leaf.
Looks like it will go well on a pair of Jeans or something like Sharons' bag
Please meet the worlds first hyper active sloth
Most pictures of Wilf are of his back . Because he can't stay still enough, for long enough for a picture to be taken. In the half second delay of the button being pressed and the thing going off, he's gone.
His favourite and most spectacular trick is catching frisbees. This is not Victors forte as he is incapable of thinking in three dimesions. He runs like a maniac swinging his head from side to side looking for it, until he hears it hit the ground. He then whips round spots it, runs like stink, grabs and misses it, generaly rolling along the ground in a cloud of dust and little pebbles.
A moments peace.
A typical pose.
