October was moody as it tends to be with it’s dramatic and changing colors, blue skies, fog and at the very last, rain. The boot room is showing transition as the season is cooling and i think there is a very large spider living in the corner who i really must get rid of. I haven’t told the kids but soon they might ask why i’m banging out our shoes each time before we put them on and i know 1 boy in particular who will be particularly unsettled. There have been many after school scoots around the hood and to the park, beach explorations, baseball and neighborhood wanders with Little M, much dressing up and to that extent i have returned to my sewing projects, finally, after a great hiatus. The owl costumes got me started and the studio is a grand mess of projects now that need my time and attention. First craft fair is in 2 weeks! More on than in weeks to come.
ending the month with a hoot and a holler – quite literally, i present my Knight Owl (barn owl specifically);
and my Great Horned Owl;
(i donned my toilet paper binoculars and went as an owl watcher)
surveying the neighborhood at dusk and planning their route of attack. they look pretty Guardian of Ga’hoolish to me (judging by the book covers Little A is reading these days);
