Pigs galore!!!!

As I've mentioned before (I think!) I've been invited to participate in a medieval fair in the town next month.  

I've never been to one of these things before to demonstrate and certainly never to sell things.  The lady who contacted me said I could sell things and that they'd like a 10% contribution on sales to give to a charity.  Not sure which charity but I hope to find out in due course.  

This was the reason for designing the earrings (Winsome ones), the button flower AND a.n.other which I'll tell you about in a few days time.

The patterns for the button, earrings and mystery will soon be ready to put on the web page.  I work on drawings etc during the daytime but life here has been hectic just lately so I've not quite finished!
Anyway, I wanted a break from making the aforementioned and decided to make pigs!!!  These aren't the flying ones - just walking ones!!!!

I like them! I think the pattern must be from the same time frame as the elephant one I used a couple of months ago.

Your pigs are so cute! Years ago my mom kept a pig in her kitchen to remind her that she had a Problem with Instant Gratification! It was supposed to keep her out of the refrigerator! I sure hope these pigs don't keep anyone from buying tatting thread!

What cute little oinkers! They would be perfect for a teacher at my daughter's school who collects all things pig!

The Faire isn't til next month? Acckkk! My coworker/friend & his wife are winging their way to the UK today & will be visiting your town. I told them to look for you at the event. LOL! Well, if you see a tall balding white haired very inquisitive gentleman and his very nice wife wandering around this coming week, it's probably them. His name is Ed and he knows what tatting is!

These are sooooo cute and I can think of a couple of people who need one. Do you have a pattern? I checked your pattern page, but knowing me probably missed it!! Thanks
