THE YUCCA FROGGA IS HERE

YIPPPPEEEEEEEEEEEEE -  I HAVE A NEW GRANDSON, LEO, AS OF 9:52AM.  Got the call at 8:00am from Vermont and another on at 10:00 - fast or what?  One minute my daughter was having contractions and making bagels and the next Daddy is calling.  My other grandson who will be 3 on Monday got to watch his brother come out.  So, after crying, having lunch and seeing a movie with husband, Ken, I'm getting my things ready to go on the train tomorrow bright and early.  I will be blogging a bit whle I'm there, I'll really have lots to report - I'll look for felting inspiration.

The YUCCA FROGGA IS HERE has two meanings  #1 - my wallhanging for a fiber challenge and #2 - Because Leo makes little croaking noises (heard over the phone, of course).

Here's the finished YUCCA FROGGA WALLHANGING - but I've decided the FROGGA is capable of hopping around the fronds cause he can't decide his place in life.

I glue gunned the top frond and caught some of the fronds with the embroidery thread to keep it all down.  I decided to learn from the lesson on the last wallhanging and decided not to hang it by the Sari ribbon.  So, on the back, is a nice piece of commercial blue felt with a pocket for a stick.  However, and I haven't checked cause I really am on that train tomorrow in my head, I think the pocket is too low so the weight of the frond will make the top flop over...promise I'll fix that when I get back.

I've uploaded some photos onto the fiberartsmixedmedia site for their April challenge to use things from nature.  Here's the link again http://fiberartsmixedmedia.ning.com/.   So that's it for now..

I'm off tomorrow.  Buster will be with Daddy.  Don't cry!!
He'll be coming up in two weeks to visit his two beagle cousins:  Here he is with McGregor.  There's another one named Buster, but I can't find a picture of him.
