Grizzle


                                                                ...Grizzle...
                           Our first sighting of the creature was on the stone wall 
                           behind our house. It looked like a slinking diseased ghost.

                           A very shy apparition … the white underfur, almost minklike, 
                           appeared from a distance to be some sort of severe mange.

                           If you saw him, it would be for an instant .. the second he 
                           knew you could see him …. gone .. slunk off.

"Internet" series

                                    I-01"Internet Friends"

                                  I-02 "We met on the net" 
I used leftover yarn for everything except the white background.

                                  I-03 "Facebook Friends"
Again,  I used leftover yarn for everything except the background.

The making of "we met on the net" My Mother and I do a lot of stitching, and end up with short scraps of yarn. So one day, I thought it would be challenging to make a stitching using only these leftover yarns.

Seasons

May faerie with hawthorn tree.
If you tie a colored ribbon on a branch of a hawthorn, it will be viewed as a gift to the spirit of the tree, and will bring you luck. Yellow for friendship and happiness, red for love, green for wealth, and blue for health.
