Well, for anyone who has ever played Facebook's Island Paradise.. you know how hard it is to get a kiwi for your island. I woke up this morning with a tatted kiwi in my mind. Odd thing, I had never thought of tatting one. I immediately got up and scribbled down the picture in my head... and here he is.
