You got the idea of it.  That's what counts.  All professions have their mysterious initial vocabulary.  Always a guessing game for others.

We're on a road trip this weekend. I'm working on my Hawaiian applique Forever Project.

I'm halfway done with this block.

I like the fabric. Is that from SAS?

I haven't a clue where the batik fabric came from.  If you recognize it from SAS, then it very well could be true.

Sounds silly but I'm thinking about flowers for spring by starting to work with polymer clay again. You might recall that I've grumbled about squirrels burying acorns in the very large pots on my terrace  These rascals return in the spring to dig up the acorns and also dig up my newly-planted wax begonias which I find highly annoying.

Okay, this coming year I will not plant wax begonias. I will plant a bunch of polymer clay posies, birds and bugs and such on long metal stakes. I started this collection last summer and I will add to it by spending the winter creating oodles more.

Here's a 21 o'clock flower for starters.  (You do recall your grandmothers planting four o'clocks, don't you?)  This thing has 21 yellow dots around its center ... hence the peculiar name.  It is not on a stake yet, just resting on the bowl I used to shape it for baking but you get the idea ... large red petals, smaller red petals, some stuff in the center, drooping on a glass bowl and baked until firm.

And I'm off and running on creating strange blossoms for my flower pots for the 2020 gardening season.  grinning 

I will never try to create a "real" flower ... only aiming for cartoon-ish ones.

I love it, it looks great.  Been wondering what you and your clay have been up to.
