You make me dizzy, Miss Lizzy

Man, I am such a music junkie.  I bought some new speakers when I splashed out on the laptop, from Logitech (note:  I have no affiliation whatsoever with any technology company, but if somebody's looking to sponsor me, hey!  I'm your person...) & I've got the music library playing on random in the room where the laptop lives, and also in the room where the sewing machine lives, belting out of another piece of geekery.  How bad is that?  I can't bear to be in a room for more than about 10 minutes without music.  MWH is the same with the TV, which is probably why I need the music - what was that song "57 channels and nothing on"???

Anyway, enough digressing, didya see the new gadget, didya, didya, huh, huh?  I spent an inordinate amount of time at Flickr this morning, then had to go to big huge labs to get it how I wanted it - and I still don't think it's right, but I have added a froggie slideshow to the page, only as a method of improving communications, you understand, subliminal advertising being illegal and all (well, here, at least!).

I spent some quality time yesterday with my lovely friend GMcD, aka Hannah Sutherland, who has ordered no less than four, yes, that magic number - not one, not two, not three but four, froggies, and I was happy to be able to deliver the first one:

To the left here is Miss Petunia, and she is going off to Miss Jackie as a gift, I believe.  Miss Jackie is the lovely lady for whom I made the 75 lavender bag bonbonieres last year, and she is also the proud owner of Miss Jasmine the Weddiung Frog, to the right here, in figured satin, complete with tulle veil & pearl eyes...
I also made one each for the lovely GMcD & her mum, who is visiting her from Scotland, and in celebration of her Scottish heritage, I have named them Cora and Iona:
Cora looks a little like she's been smoking those funny cigarettes, but I'm thinking that's maybe jetlag?
Anyway, one more to go, in something purple.  I'm going to have to go & find some more purple fabrics, it's becoming a lot more popular (well, that's my excuse) and I don't have enough in my stock.  Isn't it funny how we gravitate to the colours we really like?  I have loads of blues, greens, pinks and reds, but hardly any yellows, oranges, purples or browns, and I have a bunch of fabulously versatile black & white stuff but only because I was given it as a gift - it wouldn't have occurred to me to go & buy it, and yet it's fantastic to line anything... and also if you wanted a formal frog!  I hadn't thought of that... but I will now!
