yikes!


When the Fast Friday challenge came out last Friday, I don't know what came over me, but I just HAD to put pieces of two strange fabrics together. And this is the result. The challenge was to use some piece of spam email that we had seen as inspiration. The spam subject line that grabbed me was when ordinary just won't do, and I immediately thought of these women, looking down on one of their own kind who happens to have befriended some really unordinary creatures. (Maybe that's not what is happening at all...I just don't know.)

Maybe it's because I have been making paper collages each week. Maybe it's being annoyed at some recent events in which a woman friend of mine has been treated by her (male) supervisor as though it is the 1950s and women were expected to stay home and men thought they were kings. Maybe it's because my sock monkeys and silly critters evoke all that the world should be like. Maybe it's none of these and just my mind working to clear itself.

Whatever it is, here is a near-duplicate of what I had posted at Fast Friday.
