Thanks!
The spider is coming along... I have to make myself stop and make some dinner!
I'll probably have it ready to pic and post in the morning.

Those are soooo cute, Suzie! I can't wait to see the spider. I'm currently starting on a bridal headpiece and veil for a girl who's getting married next month. I'm also working on Halloween costumes - I love Halloween!

And this morning, my son and I were playing with some Sculpey polymer clay to try and make the "letter dice" to make our own Big Boggle game. Hasbro stopped making Big Boggle years ago, but we love it and thought it would be fun to make our own. The first die is very encouraging - baked up fine and the letters I stamped into each side didn't distort or become less clear. If we get it fine-tuned and end up with a set, I'll post pics, too.

BTW Suzie, I love this thread! I think it'll be so much fun to see what everyone is working on.

Those are great, Suzi! I am crocheting a pullover sweater for my friend's daughter's baby boy. I have to hurry or he will grow out of it before I get it done. You would think with all the time on my hands I would have it done already but I can't seem to concentrate on it for long periods of time.

I also have a quilt that I have been working on for what seems like forever!

I forgot - I love the google eyes on your little ghost and candy corn, Suzie. It reminds me of a skit Christopher Walken did on Saturday Night Live about a gardener who was scared of plants so he put google eyes on all of the "so he knew where he stood with them".

Oh Saph it's so easy!
If I can, anyone can!
I didn't learn 'til last year, and taught myself just off the internet and a couple books.
