Those of you who visit here often may remember the fun we had last week, coming up with names for Padsworth, when he assumes his super-hero role . . .
Usually he is a mild-mannered frog about the sewing room . . .
He enjoys mascot status here at the Lilypadquilting blog -- he is the symbol of our virtual design wall web site, Ole Frog Eyes, and he keeps us aware of updates and upgrades at the OFE site.
Remember that he stole my bingo card and made a cape out of it?
Well, Paddy and I both enjoyed all of your great answers, and we thought we would carry this one step further --- so without further ado, let me introduce
The Green Streak
In true super-hero style, he has his own lead-in, and accessories, too --- imagine all of this said with a drum roll in the background, and one of those rich-voiced announcers saying:
It's a bird -- it's a plane --- no, it's the Green Streak!
The Protector of Patchwork!
Armed with his trusty 2.5 inch square and his seam ripper he is on a crusade to remind quilters everywhere to "measure twice, cut once, and always sew with a scant quarter-inch seam!"
Leapin' Lilypads, Padsworth! You've changed so! (Swoon)
(If I remember correctly, it was Sharon (Vrooman'sQuilts) and Melissa (SewBittersweetDesigns) who came up with his name and his mission -- thank you ladies!)
Ahem. Our announcer is not finished yet . . .
"Able to leap large piles of fat quarters -- able to scale tall machines in a single bound (usually), staunchly defending the right to quilt without fear . . . it's the Green Streak!!"
So, the next time you approach a stack of fabric, or consider a new technique, or pull a project out to inspect your stitches, just remember that the Green Streak is on your side, quilters!
And yes, his super shirt is made of quilt batting, with the lightning bolt appliqued to the front. Have you ever tried designing a shirt for a frog? Sheesh!
Well, we thank you for your attention today - and please feel free to holler for
Padsworth, er, the Green Streak whenever you're in a tight quilting spot!
Here are your bingo words for today!
Have a hoppy day of sewing!!
