You Little Beauty!
The Ozzies have a great expression, "You little beauty". It expresses great appreciation and approval. I lived in Australia and I don't remember that I ever used the expression. It sounds pretty silly out of the mouth of a Brit, but I'm very happy to apply it to Julia's child's blanket.
It is littlish and it is a beauty. It reminds me of the patterns that form inside a kaleidoscope. I particularly like the little chips of Rabbit Brush yellow in the same way the flashes of green in Irvin's Moki delight me. As I've said before, there is that little shock of pleasure that what was once only a photo now hangs on my wall as the actual weaving. Julia has a satisfied and very happy customer here in the UK.
