In addition to the handmade turkeys, we have seen some real ones around our neighborhood in the last few months. In fact, as I was writing this entry I looked outside and saw a group of them behind our house. By the time I found my camera they were pretty far away, but I did manage a to grab a picture. The quality is horrible as I was rummaging through the woods in my slippers trying my best to zoom in, but those two fuzzy black blobs on the left are turkeys. (I think anyway)

Well, I tried my hand at some jewelry making and it is harder than it looks with all those tiny little beads and precise measurements. Yes, sewing obviously involves lots off measuring, but if you are a millimeter or two off on a seam no one will ever notice. If one earring is a millimeter or two longer than the other it is much more noticeable.
I used some vintage beads from here and some others I had lying around. My favorite pair: the lemon drops on top.
No more earrings for awhile. Last night I returned the pliers from my sewing room to its rightful home in the basement workshop.

layers of bulky clothing (yes it was chilly) + running full speed to get to the next house + a month of built-up excitement + the thrill of seeing friends + dark + SUGAR
= at least three tumbles by each trick-or-treater
(none serious :) )Can you match the pumpkin to the carver?
