Paprika the Dragon

This is Martha Ess' dragon, his name is Paprika. I made a mistake on him. Well, I'll have to try again.

ID: 23351 I just received this neat book from Singapore. It's a great instructional book for beginners, plus it has some cute patterns that I can't wait to try. They also sent me this adorable clover leaf bookmark. I am delighted.

Big Spinning Wheel

I've had this in my head to try for a long time. It's Mary Konior's glass mat, only I added to the length of the rows. The thread is a Cro Sheen #10. It isn't singed, so it took some extra care not to make mistakes. But I did anyway.
Kudos to Martha for making her progressing spinning wheel. That's the inspiration I needed.

Glass Mat #8

This really is mat #8. I'd made #7 the same colors as #6, so I didn't put it in.

Pastel Bunny gets a garden

Pastel needed a nice spring garden patch to enjoy. Today he goes to a dear friend. She loves bunnies and has a collection of them. I wrote a little poem inside.
When you're feeling lonely, when you're feeling blue. Look at little bunny and know I pray for you.

Pastel the bunny

My girlfriend wants a bunny. She asked for a variegated one. I have lots of #10 crochet cotton laying about. This is made from Cro-Sheen. It doesn't like to slide very well. I used plenty of Thread Heaven.

OH OH !!

Oh oh, in true bunny fashion, they're multiplying. The one on the far left has a larger bead nose. I like it better.

Glass Mat #6

The color is Lizbeth #115, Springtime.

Two Little Funny Bunnies

Theses two little cuties are from Two Shuttles. Designed by WIKI I thought they were so cute, I just had to give them a try. I tried two different things for the nose. One worked better than the other. I'm already making a third one.
