I'm impressed too by your resourcefulness, not to mention the fact that you can actually paint.

Ya got me. Selkie has one too. I've been feeling guilty after reading your posts, and had finally decided on new coasters, this time daisies. I promise I'll grab the yarn and hook as soon as I finish reading the new posts.

I'm stitching away on my petit point, just haven't felt like taking any pictures. Getting closer and closer to being done.
