Three bags of candy and absolutely NO trick or treaters! What’s up with that? My husband thinks it’s great – more for him! Maybe I should feed it to this demented little plushie (for sale for $30 inc shipping) … I made two with this color scheme .. one was a commission and I forgot to take a photo of it .. but the face was the same as one of the first ones I ever made. I have no idea where this one came from. Well, actually I do. I had seen a website with fabulous carved paper mache pumpkins and they were stuck in my head when I made this. No resemblance whatsoever though, lol.
I also made 36 domino magnets to take down to The Stash (the art consignment store I have ‘stuff’ in) but I forgot to take a photo of them too. I just took a photo of these few that I tried embossing on so I can post it at my online classroom. I teach how to make these, along with domino necklaces and altered CD pins, over at Doll Street.
I’ve also been knitting lately .. this isn’t the best photo because I can’t seem to get the color right – the yarn is hand dyed, so soft, and absolutely gorgeous (Mountain Colors, Twizzle). I made two headbands and a set of wristwarmers with one skein. You can’t tell but I chose the wristwarmer pattern just so I could teach myself how to knit cables. Would have shown up better if I used a solid color rather than the variegated, but, oh well. I love it! My severed hand pincushion happily models it for me. I am also working on a pair of socks but I keep getting sucked into these books I’m reading and I haven’t figured out how to knit and read at the same time.
