Y is for Yapok

This is a Yapok. Water Opossum.
Isn't it the cutest? he looks gleeful. I have been on the lookout for 
interesting creatures who's body structure would lend itself to 
paper clay critters. This one definitely has potential.

 Look at those hands/paws. I want to tackle those. 
As I look back on my "doll" file I've been fond of making them for years. 
Below are some of my favorites.
Apparently I'm no where near done.



This is what's on my table now. A cardinal.

Another fun pattern from Ann Wood. It will come with me on 
a little trip we are embarking on in a week. Lots of hand stitching 
to keep those hands busy

From Ann's site. 

Appears I took quite a detour from my opening. Hope you don't mind.

Y is another letter I struggled with for the A to Z challenge. 
I resort to searches. Found this site where my creature idea came from.

This is his hobby. Tons of great stuff to poke around & generate ideas.
If you go to the Dictionary of Obscure Words next to the About tab
you can select any letter & get a large list for any letter.
 "A thinking  place".  Nice "P" word.


I would love to hear from you. Please give me your feed back or questions about anything you find here.
