Trapped inside

Oh, it is such a beautiful day...85 degrees and the sun is shining...and I'm working at the library reference desk from 12-9pm. *sigh* There are college students sunbathing outside! Somehow I don't think the library will be a popular destination today. LOL There are a few graduate students here, at least, so they might ask a few questions...

I sold 2 patterns on eBay last week (such a hassle, getting everything listed/shipped/etc), and I used the "proceeds" from the sales to buy a cover for my Q-snaps. You can see it in the picture below - I've been working on the fox cubs for the past few nights. Aren't the little frogs cute?!? And they haven't jinxed my stitching yet! The cover was a steal - around $5, shipping included. Nordic Needle sells a similar product, but it costs about 3 times as much! So I'm happy.
Yesterday I decided to join the Totally Useless SAL, and share my ort collection on a monthly basis. Teehee. We are supposed to post our progress on the new moon, which just happens to be today, so here it is -- one lonely little jar with a few fox-colored DMC threads.(If you are curious about the TUSAL, you can read about it on Yoyo's blog -- there are links on the top left-hand side!)

Just popping in to welcome you to the Totally Useless SAL. I'll be adding you to the Totally Useless membership list today. Thanks for posting, you've got a great start there and believe me it grows a whole lot faster than we think it will. You can grab a totally useless button from my sidebar for your's if you like -- not mandatory though.

I think you are really brave to have a Q-snap cover with frogs on it (LOL). The fox is pretty, I'll be back again to read more. (I love the background on your blog, that sun/moon graphic is terrific.)

What a cute cover! Hopefully the frogs that might visit just decide to hang out with the ones on the cover. :)

Your qsnap cover is too cute!! I love the froggies! I've been thinking about buying or making one too. I can see how it would really protect my fabric!
Cute fox!!
