Tonight I was able to finish my October 2008 BJP piece.
Here is October Bird -- She has Halloween colors being October and all. Her head and top body are beaded with tiny little clear pale yellow flowerette beads held in place with brown #13 Charlotte beads. The outline of the wings are lovely green silver lined beads and the center of the wings done with seed bead and bugle beads. Her underbody is peyote beaded in a shimmering orange bead. A fun little bird to do. If I can get a better photo of her soon, I will replace the one here -- too much rain to get outdoor or even daylight photos.
Below I have posted a photo of the underbody of both September and October Birds ---

In the days following 9/11/01 I created my 9/11 Angel. Tattered, tear stained and dirty -- Angel brought wings to those in need that day. She has hung in my sewing room ever since and each day I see her and feel that terrible pain -- and remember to live each day to the fullest and to remember to say I love you as often as possible -- to give extra hugs and to do all the things we sometimes think we can wait until later to do or say.

The last bit is taking longer than I thought it would -- I decided that I needed brighter beads in order for the birds to show up in the grape vine wreath -- so October Bird is much more colorful than September Bird. It is hard for me to work in brighter colors -- don't know why, but I'm giving it a go and hope they will all work out well in the end.

This little candle mat I made during some of the hours sitting at the hospital or in waiting rooms. It is a little penny rug birthday candle mat. The pattern came from Prairie Point Junction. It is a sweet little mat and such fun to do.
Then there was Rotta the Hutt/aka Stinky. I have included some photos of DGS with Stinky. I think you can tell by the look on his face that this was a special gift. And it certainly was special for me too. These moments are so wonderful. I am one very lucky Mom and Gram

Guess you had to see the movie to love Stinky LOL.
Here's Stinky with his travel bag all set to go live with grandson. I know he will be happy there.
