Yuummm! Plate full of eyeballs….sounds good coming up on Halloween, doesn’t it? Actually I baked these this morning using Sculpty for my current quilt, Alien Invasion, so they’re not for eating.
And what’s an alien invasion without an abducted cow? I have to laugh as I make things like barns and cows for this quilt because they’re not your typical colors.
I didn’t have had much time to work in my studio over the weekend because I had to suit up in my adventure outfit….(don’t ask me to bend over in this costume, I barely got in it without dislocating my shoulder.)
Now I’m sure you think I’m off to the wild jungle in this outfit, but actually I’m off to the back yard to cut down all the water plants in our fish pond. I hate to cut them when all the water lilies are blooming and beautiful, so I usually wait until they start to fade in October and there’s usually only one or two days that are warm enough to even THINK about getting into the water…
Oh my, I look like the Creature from the Black Lagoon! Actually I learned this face from my three-year-old nephew, I think he calls it his lion face. Good idea for a Halloween costume though.
And where has Russ been? Out at the Heartland Racetrack in freezing cold Kansas waiting to race his Porsche. Actually I was supposed to be the navigator in the road rally, but after reading only one out of four pages of complex driving directions, I got so incredibly car sick that we both had to bail out of the rally (last prize was still pretty good though.) The next day he raced at the track, and I got to stay in the hotel and watch cartoons and draw. Now that’s my idea of a good weekend!
