A Basket of Fries

The kids go crazy
over these!

....some more happy color.

This Clown Fringy Fish
is perfect with
Nicki Lee's hand-dyed ribbons.

I had this idea of bunching up the
ribbons for the fins, and I'm thrilled
with the look!

Editing Note Here!
I'm making an artistic change on these Fringys'
......some of the danglings are looking like "beards".....
I was thinking it, you were thinking it!
The Angelfish don't need the hanging beads.....
I'll place those pretty danglings on the fish's side
for beauty! ............."That's all"!

Something's fallen head-first
into the rice!

....it's just a cute Purl Frog -
pattern from The Purl Bee!
He makes a great paper-weight,
it can get a little breezy out at
the Market.

A couple of "Spot, the Dogfish" out for
a little fun in the sun.


  1. Yay! Hi Joyba!

    Yes, the wackier the colors, the better the kids like 'em!!


  2. Hi Jess,
    it looks like a very busy time for You. Eyerything is so nice and I like most the fries. They fit perfect to our new blogging group called the Flachquildärs http://deflachquilders.blogspot.comwhich means the Flat quilters flach=Flat Quildärs=Quilters a dialekt in low german.
    Your fries are even flat as our country, the nothern part of Germany.
    I like the handdyed ribbons too, there were perfect for my embroidery class.
    A big hug from Germany
