I just wanted to report that the frog purse you have seen pictured here so often won a prize at Art in the Redwoods! It was given the "Beading Excellence" award of $100. and the scuttlebutt is that the purse sold! The check for the prize has already been received and the sale money should arrive soon.
Have gotten stories about it! How one of the arrangers of the show tried to pull the five dollar bill out and was shocked to find it sewed down.
One person asked me if the money in the mouth was a bribe for the judges!
So all and all it was a good experience! I would like to see the show before it goes down.
