Date night Thursday was really enjoyable. We went to the Belliago to take pictures of the new Fall display. I have included a couple of my favorite parts of the display here (you can see more in my Webshots, link in the sidebar). It was getting dark when we arrived so the pictures didn't come out as well as I would have liked. Guess that means we will have to go back for the ones that didn't come out. Below you can see my favorite guy, The Apple Tree. His eyes would open and close, he raised his eyebrows and talked. It was really fun to see the looks on the kids faces when the tree talked to them. I also love the scarecrow, he must be working since there were no crows to be found.
We went out again on Friday night for dinner and a trip to Michael's. They were putting out all the Christmas decorations and I found some really pretty cording. There was 1 complete aisle of just Christmas ribbon and I will be going back for some to make a cube with my "Tis the Season" finish.
The 3rd exterior wall is finished. I'm not about 3/4 done with the 4th wall and then I can start on the interior wall. I don't think the interior will take as long to do, much less stitching to be done on them. With any luck I'll be done by Halloween.
I love the beaded Scissor Fobs but not enough to pay the price charged for them. I have one that a friend made me a couple of years ago and thought I could make them too. I had problems finding the clasp for the top but lucked out while at Michael's and DH found just what I needed. This is my first attempt at making one and I'm really happy with the way it came out. Now I'll not only haunt the stitching sections of JoAnn's and Michael's but will be looking for beads and charms too so I can make more fobs.
That's what I've been up do since last I posted, hope you enjoyed the pictures and will venture over to my Webshots to see the rest of the Belliago display.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching
