nature is spectacular

this movie had me in awe, in tears and in terror as to how the emperor
penguin endures what nature dishes out. considering that penguins mate only
every 4 or 5 yrs. it's a wonder they manage to survive at all. i would
have appreciated this movie as a science film when i was a kid. my grand-
daughter has seen it too, and was deeply moved. yet, she showed no signs
of distress as nature isn't good or bad, it just is.

giftie from mariposa

my SP, Mariposa (it means butterfly; not her real name)has sent me some wonderful denim sirdar, a create knits & corchet 'zine, some awesome notecards with a matching journal. thank you so much, Mariposa! all the way from the sunshine state. it use to be my state too, until 10 yrs. ago. finally, a pic of my unblocked fishtail scarf in mohair. i love the colors & the fluffy softness of it all. i have some remnants of differet yarns that i am making headbands out of. i have started a panta in fuschia & made a headband out of pink cotton sewed on a few faux pearls and viola! another headband. it bothers me when i can't recycle or reuse fibers.
