Fall is Creeping Closer

Wow...Here it is September already. I'm a little sad. I'm never ready for the cold weather. Still working on orders and Halloween goodies! I finished up my bat garland banner yesterday and listed it in my etsy shop last night. I don't know about you but I think bats are so cute!



And I've also been working on little barn wood Halloween wall hangings. This is a newer one that I listed last week.


I'm still keeping busy with raising my Monarchs. I let my 3rd one go on Saturday. But he didn't make it. It emerged on Saturday morning. I tried to let it go early afternoon but he didn't seem ready to fly away because he flew into the side of the house. So I put him back in his jar and thought I would wait till later. Well... later it started raining pretty hard and it didn't let up before it got dark so I put him outside under one of my hosta's out of the rain. That was a bad idea. The next morning I checked and all that was left of him was one wing. Some little critter got him for sure.

Monarch #3


I have Monarch #4 in the chrysalis stage right now. It should be coming out in a few days. I also have a two eggs that will be hatching into caterpillars within the next couple of days.

This is just a shot I took riding in the car other day. I love clouds!


Ok...well that's about it for now folks. Need to get back to the old sewing machine.

I need to get my fall things out, so I can see what I have and what I need. Would like to make some new fall ornies and larger doll pieces. My hands can't handle small and detailed right now.
