Homemade Rabbit Foot Fern

For my "Baby" Sis - here known as Beany - a look at the Rabbit Foot Ferns in my possession.

First the newest member of the family - Cute, huh?

Another view


 And this is "Mom".  The fuzzy parts are probably rhizomes... I put one into a little pot without cutting the root, and that's how I got Jr. after 2 years or so. Once there were fronds (leaves) I cut it off of the Mom. Below is another view of Mom.

I'm starting two more. I hope they grow faster. Below is the laundry cup that I used to put up next to the Mom and set a rhizome on the soil and then water to keep moist... until it has fronds.

The whole thing is on the top of my guest shower. I've got plants everywhere.
So it isn't tomorrow yet... two people won the giveaway! You will just have to wait for tomorrow to find out who.

A Gryffindor Chair

Okay, I'm still working on the contest at Fandom in Stitches called the Fabulous Fandom Mashup. Here's my latest, and last, entry:

It's a paper pieced pattern from the Children/Animated section associated with Blue's Clues (the thinking chair)... I'm calling it a Squashy Chair from the Gryffindor Common Room - in Gryffindor colors. The prize is a T-Shirt, so wish me luck. 

Gotta get this loaded up to the Flickr group and labeled.
Thanks for stopping by.... giveaway tomorrow.
