October Wrap-Up

First, let me say, I'm not old.  I refuse to be.  I'm just pre-maturely...mature.  With that said, Can you believe tomorrow is NOVEMBER 1!!!  Geez Louise!  October just evaporated.  With exception to the little road trip hubby and I took over Columbus Day, all the stitching has been for party favors, so I don't have much that I can show you.  But first...

These aren't the best photos in the world, but I love to see how beautiful the birds wings are in flight.  Reminds me of fractal art. 

And why I love their little bird feet is a total mystery to me, but I do.

I didn't intend to capture these guys in flight, but I was using the 'Running Man' setting on the camera (for fast action).  It takes a series of shots, rapid-fire style, when you press the button (a.k.a. the big button, the Go button, the picture takin' button, whatever..).  Are you impressed with all this technical jargon I've learned? 

The sun was illuminating these mums yesterday and they seemed to be glowing.  When we turn the clocks back later this week (boo-hiss!), I will feel sun-deprived almost immediately.  So, I really tried to enjoy as much sunshine as I could this weekend.

And what, pray tell, did I stitch on this month, other than party favors?

Meet VooDoo Bob
design exclusive by:  Haberdashery Designs

Yes - You guessed it - He's a pin cushion!  He tickled my funny bone from the minute I saw him.  He'll be finished as a stand-up doll.  I can't wait to finish him but I'm sure it will be January.  It might look strange for me to work on him during the holidays, with all the family visiting.  They might start getting ideas about me.  We might as well keep my crazy between us chickens.   Right?  




  1. Voodoo Boy is a hoot! What a great idea for a pin cushion. I need to hunt this pattern down - it really tickles my funny bone. Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love Voodoo Bob! Let the family wonder! Keeps them on their toes. And it might cut down on overnight visitors!
