the chicken and the frog

I apologise in advance for this bad joke...
A chicken went into a library saying: "Book...book book book" so the librarian gave the chicken some books. When the chicken returned again and said: "Book...book book book" the librarian gave the chicken some more books. When the chicken returned AGAIN and got even more books the librarian became suspicious.. So she decided to follow the chicken to see what he was doing with all the books. . As the chicken came to a stop near a pond the librarian saw a frog looking at all the books saying:........."Read-it...Read-it...Read-it"!


I have been busy crafting! Amazing! I was trying to complete a girly frog for a p.p.o. swap but could not finish it in time. This is what I sent in the end. I made the little frog a while ago. (she's one of my favourites - more are planned) The chicken is a new pattern I want to work on and in the floral parcel is a set of my flower mug-mats. I hope my swap buddy likes them. I never know if I have sent too much or not enough. I would rather over-do it than under do it. I just don't want to be embarrassing either way.

I also completed this sketch the other night. I have to tidy it up, keep in mind it is only rough. I want it to go into the notecard set I am working on. It's a bit different for me. A bit more of a picture rather than just a design but I think I like it!

Well hubby-j has taken the girl to the park so I can get dinner ready and vacuum...(oh joy!!) so I better get to it.

Your joke was cute! I think you did great on your swap. Looked like a great package for someone.

As always I just love the sketch. It reminds me of something from "Alice in Wonderland". Once again you have another winner to add to your notecard set.
