    Not sure if it is because he is not in a bark canoe, or whether it was because he befriended Beaver, but Porcupine sure looks angry!

    Oh... I thought it looked like the porcupine was making a move on the paddle!

    Yes Porky appears to be angry. Actually; Porky has just donated some of his quills for a project that Beaver has been working on. We're all happy little rodents you know;)

    Ok, I'll be the first to say it. That dragonfly looks sharp!

    Dave Wermuth Who hid my paddle?


    The work is way too exquisite to make puns.
    I cannot begin to say how stunning it is.
    It would be pointless for me to try.

    As I'm poking myself with yet another of Porky's quills on this fine Spring day I must thank you all for your kind words.

    Ferdie, could you give me some resources on how to do porcupine quills? I would like to try it out. The dragon fly is fantastic!

    I would recommend "Micmac Quillwork" by Ruth Holmes Whitehead.
