When my kids were in grade school, for St. Patti's day, a friend and I used to go to the school early in the morning & leave little lepricorn foot prints. To me, March is the month of fun! Here I have a pool of green for the lepricorns to play in!

The idea for a frog book came when I walked into a new fabric store & there sitting on the floor was the most incredible fun eye fabric, on closer inspection, they were frogs! It was so fun & cute that I couldn't resist.
"Where is the food?"
This page has little bugs flying around :)
Where is the party?
This may be hard to read but the beads on the left spell "Party Time"
This says "Dinner time" and I tried to embroider what looked like grubs. The picture of the frog on the right is a photo of the frog that sits in my Dad's backyard. He actually grows grubs to feed it!
This says "Leap Frog"
This has beads spelling out the word "Ribbit" and my signature and date on the right.
Don't you just love the eyes! :)

Everyone should have one special day of the year when it is all about them. My day of the year is in April so this piece is in celebration of me :) I had an absolutely wonderful birthday this year & a week later, my kitchen still smells beautiful from the wonderful flowers. Note to everyone - when sending flowers to someone who has cats in the house - don't include Baby's Breath! Receiving flowers had been banned from my house for a long time because I hated cleaning up the mess. Everyone ignored me this year but no one sent flowers with Baby's Breath! What a difference! I can enjoy my flowers & not have to worry about the mess!

I finished a Muslin sample book using the French Stitch Binding & I have started 2 new books - a button edge with a Chinese theme of food! and a Muslin Journal with the theme of frogs. The picture below shows the cover. Can you spot the eyes! :)
But the best thing is that I have figured out how I am going to put my Beaded Journal Projects into a fabric journal. I'm so excited to get started!
