I really like the embroidery this time. I think the ripples in the puddles and the splashes made by the children turned out nicely. Most of all, I like the shoelaces on the boy's shoes. Such a tiny little detail, but I do love those finishing touches. What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is loads of fun - quick to make and a great way to use up some of those scraps. Just play.

Q&A with K Lee 2Strings

Shoestring asked:
Hello there 2 strings. You are so talented and quick putting these together. Golly, I can feel the rain and the puddles. Cool blue background is perfect for the silhouettes. I love the tiny details. Congratulations. Fabulous work as always!
K Lee 2Strings answered:
Thank you, Shoestring. I do love those little details. And so do you!! Just look at those bags with hidden pockets and handmade beads and buttons. And, in all honesty you are the real speed demon here. One gorgeous bag after another, lickety-split!
AllThatPatchwor asked:
What adorable little mug rugs! You have really captured the action of the children and dogs. I can just feel the droplets. Those designs sure fit the weather here on the rainy Washington coast this week. Puddles eveywhere for days.
K Lee 2Strings answered:
Oh, thank you. I must have been thinking of the year I lived in Oregon when I designed these. The playground was always filled with puddles and it seemed we were always trying in vain to control students' splashing contests. Rain in Nebraska has been pretty scarce this past couple of years.

So charming
K Lee 2Strings answered:
Thank you.
Simply AWESOME, as usual. Oh mom, I am so proud of your talent :)
K Lee 2Strings answered:
Oh, you are so sweet! How are you? I don't see much Craftsy activity, so I assume you are very busy with a ton of other good deeds.
