I received the pattern for this and a couple other ones like this from a friend of mine, however she does not remember where she got them so I cannot properly give credit. I would love it though if anyone reading this does recognize the pattern and knows who designed it.The reason being is I just love it and it was/is a very fun project to do. Sometimes I just got to get away from the over 80 piece intarsia patterns like the hawk and phoenix etc. On my other blog I have two pictures of this with this being the first and not complete. As can be seen, it has no tongue and then after THAT I was not sure what I wanted to do with it. I truly think this little worm is adorable and I loved the way it was coming out that when I wrote this the first time I had already decided to give it to a dear dear friend of mine for a Christmas present and I just could not figure out what to make out of it.As you can see by this next picture this is what I decided on. I was and am very happy with the outcome. It was made out of mahogany, pine, green poplar, and black walnut.

Cute little guy.

Like they say,”the only thing worse than finding a worm in your apple, is to find half a worm in your apple”

he is definitely a cutie.
I like how you turned it “into something” ... I think I’ve said it before, but I like “functional”.

Well done, as always.
