On the deck…
Under the overhang… Remember the eggys:
Just overnight they hatched — they don’t even have eyes or wings yet –
only BIG yawning HUNGRY beaks!! And man that mama wren is HUSTLING! I know, they’re SO silly, but they really ARE the sweetest ugliest things!
Now for some stitch business–
I’ve been working tote bag samples for fall classes, and doing a few for commissions (it really IS true that a girl can’t have enough bags!)
french knots and pistil stitch coming along sweetly — I think I’ll fill in around the french knots… still thinking.
AND: tah dah… A new place to ogle, get inspired, hang out:
The Mandrake Challenge Gallery *link*
It features the ever popular Mandrake pattern and some nips and tucks perpetrated by ambitious stitchers and artists alike — He’s had what the lovely people at digital art quirks call An Extreme Makeover! I’ll add other interps as I get links — and I’ll also post progress on the WOmandrake! (she’s all drawn up and ready to be stitched…) But I guess having a pile of stitch to finish is a GREAT problem to have ;0}
