Caskets for Halloween

Just something fun to celebrate samhain

As usual I find my mojo just in time to miss the holiday itself .

 I didn't finish these in time to sell them for halloween

but I get to enjoy them this year so It's not a total wash

I love how this side turned out on this one.

 you see even ghosts are afraid of spiders!

 this one is all blacks and greys somber elegance with feathers.

I can't be serious about everything, what would be the fun in life otherwise??

 though this stitch combination did turn out smashing, if I do say so myself!

 this one is a little plain but I thought,

with the bright orange sequins,

 anything more would have tarted it up a bit too much.

and they all have this wonderfully lush red satin linings. it contrasts so well with the stark black of the interior you can almost hear the hinges creak!

this one is my favorite though.

the bright center orange rose hides a stark white skull in its center surrounded by more roses and pumpkins fresh from the patch.

a candy corn flower, a key to the afterlife and a brilliant green spider finish it off.

what could be more Halloweenie?

August BJP done

 now I'm only 2 months behind!

the last BJP was about stargazing

so this months BJP is about the sun.

I don't know if you realize just how unusual it is to have more than a whole week with out rain around here.

well we've had a record breaking 50+ days without rain and frankly it's beginning to freak people out around here!

they are not used to sunshine.

so it is in celebration of the suns continued presents that I have constructed my BJP

don't look a gift horse in the mouth, I say!
I have harvested enough tomatoes this season to make spaghetti sauce and for that I am profoundly happy, with this continuous, if misbehaving, orb!
