I meant to do this post sooner, but I've been running around getting last minute stuff done.....
You see, I leave tomorrow morning at 7am for 3 whole weeks! 3 weeks of camping, hiking, sight-seeing, browsing and general lolligagging :) I'm looking forward to being among the trees and recharging that something inside me that needs fresh air and bird songs...that loves to experience that humbling peace from standing next to a Redwood Tree older than the Civil War.... I look forward to it....I do......but.....this is the first time I've been away from my Blog for such a long time! Never been away from all of you that long! I'm going to miss you so!
I'm afraid that 3 weeks in Blogland will be like 3 months here and I'll fall out of favor with you....you'll slowly forget about me as I tromp around looking for Banana Slugs and Elk....you'll see a painting that reminds you of someone you knew once upon a time, Carmen you think her name was.....
Okay, okay, so I'm being over dramatic! But I do worry about providing you with visual delights and entertaining reads, y'know.....I want you to like coming here! Your visits make me happy!
....And so, I shall offer you a bit of something to gaze upon, a little giggle, perhaps, and a promise..... :)
Here is a 2nd little Stuffed Guy I made for Micki over at The Secret Hermit Studio. I made a free hand pattern of a squirrel in profile.
I used 2 different fabrics, felt arms, and like the frog, put a leaf and a button on his bum :)
....But, how do I know this is a boy squirrel, you wonder? Any guesses?
Let's just chalk this up to a lesson learned.....give any future squirrels TWO legs and TWO ears! I decided to send him to her despite his...ahem....flaws :)
Can't wait to hear what she thinks of him...haha! Hope he gave you that giggle I mentioned before :oD
And now the promise...I'll come home renewed and refreshed ready to create upon my return! I always have a ton of new ideas swirling around inside my noggin after trips like this!
So, don't forget about me because.....
I'll be baaaahk!
