Okay, life- settle down, now!  

#1.)  I signed on a new house in October.  (>_<)  All my time has been going to making it into my new home, but I hope to have photos for you soon!  With no internet at the new house still I am long delayed in my internet past-times.  

#2.)  Work = Crazy-town.  Nuff said.

#3.) Knitting madness!  Lots of knitting in-between crazy things!  

#4.)  Skull madness!  Here is one turkey skull I’ve been working on…


Hope everyone is having a brilliant 2014 so far!  =)  Cheerios!


A gusty wind and a fierce hailstorm came through our backyard a few nights ago.  The wreckage gave me six meters of a disressed fence spread out over the yard.   Nature’s destruction inspired me!  Remember the fox skull? He finally got some skin.





A Native American supply store in town carries skulls, and while they’d been out of stock, they called yesterday to say they got new skulls in. I fetched this awesome fox, a mink, and a muskrat. Can’t wait to dress them!

Sadly, it’ll have to wait. I’m off to Europe on business and won’t be back for two weeks. I’m excited to see a much talked about taxidermy shoppe in Paris. I promise to take lots of pictures! Cheers!


If I was a porcupine, I would rather wind up covered in lace than buried under the earth. Then at
least I’d know someone loved me.

Am working on how to cover the whole skull.  Lots of little pieces. I need smaller fingers!

lace gamble quail skull

This is where I am right now. In between knitting, embroidery, and stamping, I am dragging from the depths, beyond the mundane, lace skulls from my inner self. They come slowly, but with great satisfaction. This gamble quail is only an inch wide, and perhaps two inches long. It is so small, I feared breaking it, but the trooper clung together, and now it has a crochet lace net to hold it together even more.

I think he’s happier.

Next attempt- all white.
