CQJP November 2016

 Abandoning any pretence of catching up I'm skipping to December

If I do catch up(insert manic giggles here) its because I’ve a sudden fit of energy which would be a first for this year.


here he is ,a very boyish fairy

the first thing I thought when I saw him was that old nursery rhyme

"Snips and snails and puppy dogs tails that's what little boys are made of"

so lots of bugs and critters for him

I sewed them on felt first , learning (finally) from my mistake last month with the Hedgie.

I also wanted it to have a more back-of-the-yard ravine feel to it

You know those wonderful places in the far rural suburbs between the houses where there is the feel of forest if not the actuality of it.

a place for finding bugs and critters or the occasional deer or raccoon
a child's thoughtful spot for dreaming and pretend

mucking about in the mud catching frogs and splashing in puddles

watching the critters go about their business for the day

humming a hum

LOVE the critter. I have shied away from stitching lately. My life continues to be a crazy train and I need quiet time for it which is at a premium right now. I always love to see what you are stitching.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I have vowed not to shop Black Friday sales, however, I did buy Terry a tablet on line yesterday.
xxx, Carol

Flora: This block is suberb. Your stitching and beadwork are inspired. The more I look at it, the more
I see that is delightful, going from the theme of the block with a boy fairy, to the colors. The bird on the
key, the Owl, the Frog, the (I believe it is a) seahorse, the buttons, the trims. All of it is fabulous. You are a
master creator . . .
