No, she isn't a finished project, she just looked like
to me the picture of patience. No eggs, no rooster,
and yet she still sits. I think she sits because she gets
bored with hanging around the chicken yard. She is my
favorite little hen. One of these days, I will have a
whole flock of Silkies. I may have to see if I can
order some in the spring from My Pet Chicken and
pay extra for hens. All colors. I haven't discussed
this with my husband so I am maybe talking out of the
top of my hat.
Okay, things I finished this week.
I made these pumpkins, yes, I know is late in the season
but I am slow. I have wanted to make some since last year.
I ordered a pattern from Country Stitches.
I made two because I can't ever seem to make one
of anything. I think it is from all those years when I made
stuffed animals I couldn't make just one, but six. I might
get a bunch more things made if I ever just made one thing.
This is my ta-da moment. I tried to be finished by
Halloween, but I knew I wouldn't get there because
that boot part took forever. Now what to do with it?
I don't know, pack it up until next year and take it
out and be blown away I kept at this for so long.
Making the letters was my favorite part. I tried
to memorize this part of Macbeth when I was a teenager because I loved
the way the words rang and when I saw
this I couldn't wait to sew it.
I also started making ornaments. Every thing on
our tree is hand made or something that if a baby
held it, bit it, played with it, it wouldn't hurt them.
Every year I make ornaments I could maybe fill up
two trees. I made this and it was kind of fun. I used
this stuff I found at Michaels called Pluffy. It is
like a softer version of Skulpy. I rolled it out and
used a stamp to make the design and baked it and
them spay painted it with my silver spray paint.
It took awhile to dry like a whole day but now it
is finished. I dropped it so many times trying to
take a picture of it so I know it is pretty indestructible.
Today I let my grand children play with Pluffy and I like it
better than play doh. They made snow men. That was
what I was looking for something they could make ornaments
out of I will use my cookie cutters next and see if they want
to make some for their trees. I am glad it is the weekend.
I have so many bushes to trim this weekend. I kept thinking
I would get to it this week but it rained and I never did
get back out there. It is supposed to be sunny this weekend
so I can get the small forest that is growing in my flowerbeds
taken care of, just before we put up the Christmas lights.
I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Oh thank you so much always for your kind comments.
I always feel like they are jewels I could put on a string and
each one is so beautiful as it glows from your heart to mine.
They mean so much to me. Thank you.
Oh, that men would give thanks to the Lord for His goodness, for His wonderful works to the children of men!(Psalm. 107:6)
