MS3 Happy Dance!

MS3 is complete AND blocked! Yesterday I was complaining that it looked, in the words of Claudia, like boiled a&*, and today it looks like a knit by someone who actually has a clue. I'm very pleased with it. Thank you, Melanie. I'll just bore you with a few more pix of it and then I'm done, I swear.

For instance, here's the motif on the pointy end:

And here's that wing we were all so afraid of...what were we thinking? It looks like it could swoop up into the sky and take off on the first breeze!

Finally, here's sort of what I think it might look like wrapped around me. Now all it needs is Romi's feather pin.

And, contrary to what you might think from reading the above, there IS life outside MS3:

Here's the most gorgeous flower popping up in the middle of the pond, er, uh, water feature. These guys have been appearing and then, within 24 hours, they're gone. And, by the way, does it looks to any of you like there are 7 fish in here? Nope, me either. But that's how many I've put there in the past two weeks. I'd be happy to see ONE, for heaven's sake.

Mr. Pug is making good progress on the sunroom addition. Now if he just wasn't using the knitting perch as a tool storage unit ... oh, well.

I got good photos of all the pugsters today, but here's Lightning, since she's the queen and all. (that's the top of Lulu's head you see at the bottom--she's such a ham!)

Your MS3 came out beautiful! I love the yarn you used. The pattern really shows up well on the variegated yarn.
The pugs are pretty darn cute too! Gotta love a pug (or 2 or 3).
