hook and sharpen

Christmas gifts from my sister! A pencil sharpener in the shape of a toad and a frog leaping from the top of a hook.

progress report

About half of the fabric has been woven for the napking exchange due last December. I stopped in the middle of the warp so I could get some hemmed and traded this week. Not everyone else is done yet either so I just have to keep pace with other slackers. The fabric feels dreamy soft - would have made a heavenly baby blanket. There isn't enough on the cone for that though. 30 epi was the perfect setting for this twill though it looked a little rough on the loom.

Anthurium andreanum

A new plant at the office - the common name according to Wikipedia is Flamingo Lily - never heard it called that.

one week, one magazine

This is supposed to be a one week challenge. Uh, I just can't leave well enough alone. There's three hours I won't get back again.

Thanks to Maryanne for suggesting this - I think.

the frogging begins

After looking at the piece on screen, I decided to just rip out the couching around the heart. Good decision. I like it that part much better now. I'll be looking at the bugle beads closely today. Not sure I like them. I have made the decision to stop and start my bead thread often so that I can be selective on the rip-pit part of this project.
