And when not wasting my time surfing... I've actually been working on quite a bit. I recently finished making this moon wallhanging for my SO (aka SOBF). Not sure yet how we're going to hang it, but we've been seriously considering a frame of tree branches. Extra cool points if you can guess where the design idea came from, eh?

Here is a close-up of one of the corners. I sewed antique pearl buttons over a number of the mistletoe berries.

On the face of the moon, I've sewn a little dragonfly charm.

After couching tons of funky fibers and yarns down, I've become quite intrigued with that technique and as soon as I get the EasyShare software re-loaded on my computer, I'll have a few more pics to share. In the meantime, here's a little something I crocheted out of funky yarn which I plan to use on the front of a little bag.

I don't know what it is - I just know I love it - and a lot of the other work on your blog, too.

My first reaction was Lily Pond - the second "Green man", the third a knot garden. Then I just decided it was itself, and truly beautiful.

Thank you kindly! I appreciate your compliments.

I kinda like knot garden, but... no... the colours are definitely Green Man influenced but.... no...

Stay tuned to this space. All will be revealed!

I was thinking knot garden, too. Must be something celtic... am I close? Or maybe it was inspired by a medallion that belonged to your SO's grandmother...? or a ceiling tile that you see every morning when you wake up...?
Wherever the idea came from, it's beautiful; love the buttons on the mistletoe!

Whoa. Absolutely stunning. All I thought of was a kaleidoscope.

Um, reflection of the moon on water?
