New New New

Here's a bib I've been planning forever.
Here's this crazy thing.

And this rather accidental creation.


Upon making my post descriptions, I learned bib comes from the Latin for to drink.
I learned that "throw down the gauntlet" comes from when knights would throw down their armor-gloves, gauntlets, to issue a challenge.  And that the snow white fairy tale comes from Norse mythology, as shown the brothers Grimm.  Well, one of them, I don't know who.  And that their story collections were quite secondary to their linguist work.

Dude- you just reminded me that I'm supposed to be making fingerless gloves! I have to hunt the thrift for some stretch black denim (sounds tacky but I used it for some special order gloves and it was magic).

The beads on that last necklace are amaaaazing! Like something you'd dig up in the Thames. ;D
