Beetastic - She looks awesome! I saw her already in the Sublime thread!

Rectangel - I love the way you did the fur where the colours change on those siamese cats you did with the mom and little one on the napkins. I didn't even think of that. Next time I do that pattern I'm stealing your idea!

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

I've always wondered what disease cured ham had.

Surprise here's my towel...I you can't see it but it is another checkered towel.  The last one came out so well that I thought I'd throw caution to the wind Smiley  Speaking of caution I decided it would be unsafe for my pinup girl to cook with out clothes on so I loaned her a bra and some cut-offs!  While she wasn't looking I also cut her hair.

The thread on the cut edges of the jeans is a blend of 5 colors of blue -it was fun and easy and my first time blending.  I think she's too pale but truth be told so am I.  (Note to self here the actual skin color I like is 738 not 842 which I used or 739 which I always debate about...it is strange how dark a color it is on the skein vs how it turns out)

The writing is mine and I might fix it up a little before I send but I really like to use my own writing when it's practical because I have this idea about it surviving on.  People who know me recognize my writing and I think that's cool.  Enjoy!

Rectangel and Beetastic, you rock!  Today I'm getting started on my towel.

I like it when people signed their motifs on my towel.  I might even go back and fill in the folks who didn't on the last one.

I hope my husband fixes our internet connection soon... I need to post pictures!  I've been stuck using his laptop with a dialup connection...
