I think at this point, I have to say I have enough. Well, maybe. It was Deb who got me started on these darn things! Anyhow, these aren't being used, just for decoration; I'm WAY too much in love with my DragonKeeper (do you suppose the dragons will actually PROTECT the scissors from those in this house who would go against my wishes and warnings and use them for snipping anything BUT embroidery?) . . .
I digress. First up is the Russian lacquer bowl with clear glass frog. I love red and this was my favorite one until the turquoise dragons came along.
Next up is this green gem -I love how this tall frog sits up proud above the bowl; it almost looks like some sort of berry.
Bronny wrote me a nice comment on my last post about the DragonKeeper that it was a Fenton remake of an older design. I thought that was neat since Fenton is a West Virginia glass company and I live in WV.
I have two more frogs that need bottoms and then I really MUST be done.
My youngest son and I have been fighting off a stomach bug since mid-last-week. It's a very persistent one. My husband says a lot of people at work have been coming down with it. Over the weekend though, son came down with back, neck and head ache and a slight temp - none of the symptoms I've had. This morning, he insisted that he be taken to see a doctor (he has aged out of his pediatrician's office so this meant starting afresh at the practice his father and I go to). Of course, I'm too OLD to have accumulated any common sense about these sorts of illnesses; that they just have to run their course. Naturally, while at the doctor's office, the subject of meningitis came up and although I admitted that the thought had crossed my mind, I said that I felt his symptoms just weren't enough to cause alarm. Well, turns out mom knew best. Just a virus, has to run its course, be sure to drink liquids, etc. etc. etc. And by the time we got home, he felt well enough to go to work. By golly, that doctor was a true healer!
Finally, a lot of my pictures lately have had my quilted runner as a background - I made it years ago - with set in seams no less! The blocks were so difficult to make that I stopped after making five of them; and that was just enough for a runner.
Going to go sip my watered down OJ and work some more on my Modified BBD 2008 Mystery (Wedding) Sampler; hope to have progress pics soon. Thanks for coming to visit!
