Hippos in tutus?

well, that's what this made the DH think of

I painted the bathroom this week (undoubtedly the most difficult room in the house to paint!) and I wanted to keep any splatters of paint off of the shower head and the lamp tops

a flat bottom coffee filter split to the center and then wrapped around each one and taped shut did a great job

but I agree -- it's hippos in tutus

this is the latest of the shed door pieces -- the main pieces are in place and now I'm putting in the smaller ones -- moving right along

this piece, titled "The Eagle Flies" is progressing nicely too

this one has been a very loosely designed piece -- last night I decided to try adding the bronze bugle beads along the edges of the eagle's wings just to see how it looks and I love it!

the more I do on this one, the better I like it

last Sunday's post talked about the hat I was working on for Mr Cute -- in the end after I had it all knit I ripped it all out and started over again because it was still just too big

this one is much better -- and the bonus is not just one tractor, but tractors all around the hat!

one of the things I love about this time of year is the pumpkins in all the stores

this year I've seen some particularly "warty" ones -- love that texture!

Now I have "Dance of the Hours" running through my head!
More tractors is always better, don't you think?
Yay, pumpkins, warts and all!
