Dog Transport eBook Special!!!

Dog Transport eBook Special!!! 
I've marked all four of my Natural Dyeing eBooks to the special price of $3.99 to help raise transport funds for Junior the labradoodle from Texas to Iowa!!! 

He also needs to be neutered once we get him here to Iowa, he's eight months old and the cute wore off so now he's coming to live with me, we will  have many years of happy walks together!

I will post a photo of the new pooch as soon as I have permission to do so, not everyone wants their images out on the net!

French Pearl Cotton - Yummy!

Stopped by my favorite haunt today, JB Knacker in Gilbert, Iowa, and found five beautiful skeins of vintage french pearl cotton!

Some of the thread has some foxing but should come out with a gentle washing.

WIP - Greg with More Beads

Greg is in a holding pattern now, I added some 13/0 delica's to her eyebrow section and then put her aside so I can work on a couple of other projects.  The last bit I want to work on, on this piece, is to take the trim out further, more fringe like.
