A toothbrush rug to match the lamps

Wow! Where did the last month go? After market there was catching up to do, family obligations, books to finish ... and my house to tidy up. There will be a tour of our home by our local modern home club this weekend. I made this toothbrush rug for the entryway.

I started it in red/orange/greens only - then an eagle-eyed fellow stitcher said oh you are making it to match your lamps! So voila! Yellow had to be added ...

I love Wiggs' suit

You may not know this about me, but I am a fashion junkie. I love watching what people wear, seeing what looks good and what does not. I have mentioned fashion choices of well-known women like Hilary Clinton and Michelle Obama.

But this is first. Today I will gush about a man's outfit: Andrew Wiggins suit. Wiggs, who wowed us with his play this past year at KU, bowled me over with his suit choice at last night's NBA draft. It was exciting to see him drafted first, but what about this suit! As you can see above, the jacket fabric was wild. He wore a splendid bow tie too. And what we all could not see was his choice of no socks. All this was reported in Women's Wear Daily last night, too. Go Wiggs!
