BC Reindeer Globe

I got this in the mail on Dec. 23, 2010. I've finished the top part and have only the red base to go. I like 18 ct linen over 2!

I saw some of my coral in the Smithsonian Reef!!!!

I took a cab at lunchtime today to the Museum of Natural History to 1) pick up a Penny Passport for a stocking stuffer, and 2) look for my pieces in the Community Reef.

One of my pieces of tube corals was easy to spot. They are attached to someone else's giant baby blue blob with a green Fun Fur scarf around their base. It looks great!! They are in the right hand side of the display nearest the corner of the glass. I am so delighted to be well displayed!!!!

I crocheted 40 pieces and probably only saw 8 of them. I found my Redskins colored corals at the tippy top of the red side. That must be 9 feet in the air! I also found a sea urchin (but I made 2), a sea snake, my tubes, and a sea anemone.

Great idea for 2011!

I wish I could claim credit for this fun idea for 2011, but credit goes here. The idea is to start one new project a day for the first 15 days of January 2011 and finish the projects by the end of the year. I know I could almost start more than 15 on the first! LOL I already have a couple of ideas in mind!

Maybe I could use this as an opportunity to start (and finish, yes, I know) a bunch of Shepherd's Bush designs I've had hanging around for a while. Heck, even if I started and finished 15 ornaments, I'd be ahead of this year!

So I'll post as I go. Wish me luck!
