Reptile day

The frog proceeds apace:
(I had to raid a friend's stash for bits of guts-colored fiber. All I have on hand is grey, black and cobalt.)

I thought I had a photo of him complete with ridiculously cute, stubby little arms, but I guess this is the closest thing I have. The knitting is done, I just need to do the blocking, stuffing and assembly and make the organs. For the record, needlefelting is INCREDIBLY TEDIOUS.

I've been hanging on to photos of this handsome devil since I got back from Florida. One afternoon I had about 20 minutes free and managed to sit outside for almost all of it. The place was absolutely lousy with lizards and apparently it was mating season because this guy was positively flirtatious:
I never managed to capture his neck sac at full turgidity, but I promise: it was a sight to behold. If I were a lady lizard, I would have been all over his business.

And because I like to do things in threes, check out this great video of Debbie Harry and Kermit the Frog:
