Growth Rings and froggie things!

Here is Growth Rings progress so far...this is an Ink Circles design from the March/April issue of JCS. The silks are from Vicky Clayton, the fabric is a 32ct lugana Silkweaver Solo from my stash.

I also ran by AC Moore's for the President's Day sale....DMC is 6/$1.00!! I got about 250 skeins, that now need to be sorted and stored for the future. I also went by Michael's with a 50% off coupon just to see what I could find. How is this for cute? Mr. Froggie is a clear jar (his head comes unscrewed (like many folks who find sales), and I'm going to fill him with Orts from my ort box I keep by the stitching chair. The little tin bucket is getting a lid cover stitched (a Just Nan bunny maybe) for it, just for fun. (there are more bunny pics on the sides) You just never know what you will find on a good sale day!

edited to fix JCS issue month...oops!


  1. Growth Rings is looking amazing!!! I love little Mr. Froggie!

  2. Froggie is too cute! Rings is looking good - I have the Jan/Feb. JCS but I can't find this pattern in there. AC Moore sale sounds fantastic!

  3. My mistake! It's the March/April JCS! Oops!

  4. Cute frog and great idea to use him as an ORT container!
