Long Time, no POST!!!

Happy Hallowe'en , everyone! I am disguised as the World's WORST Blogger tonight, wearing a large sparkly acid green and black sequined SPIDER on my jade green sweatshirt!  That otta fool them! The goodies are in two bowls at the front door and we await the little Trick or Treaters:-)

I have not blogged. I have not Fibre Arted. I HAVE photographed a LOT in between trips to the hospital with Mum who had a fall a couple of weeks ago (fortunately nothing broken!) and appointments for DH who has had more than his share of frustration lately. 'Nuff said. He has been quite miserable. Things begin to look up now- we HOPE! I have just been waiting and worrying or else trotting off to appointments.

I AM getting ready, ITCHY even,  to do some new work though. I am thinking in light of Christmas being so near and we HOPE to visit DD before that, that I will just make preparations and not actually start until the New Year. That way, I will have one fewer messes to clean up before Christmas.

Here are my Hallowe'en photos. I have not carved this pumpkin with the gorgeous handle. I am going to poke and slash it a little and hope that the squirrels will do the rest and I will then get GOOD pics for NEXT Hallowe'en!

Not very trad pumpkin photos but when was I trad??

I belong to a little Flickr group called  Macro Mondays and their theme this week is Shadows in keeping with Hallowe'en

My Catrina doll's "face" close up!
I HAVE been celebrating the beauty of Autumn too . It has actually been a pretty colourful fall here.

Before anyone asks and in case you did not know- Goldenrod galls! Aren't they beautiful!

There you are. A smattering. If you are interested in seeing more try ...
carolynn.mcmillan@yahoo.com. That is my Flickr site. There are LOTS of REAL photographers posting on Flickr. Check out some of the people who have commented on my pics. Some are AMAZING!!! I think that when Tuesday comes, I will post this to the needleandthreadnetwork.blogspot.com despite the lack of needle OR thread just to show that I am still in the land of the living.

I wish you all the happiest of Hallowe'ens and hope it was all treats and only fun tricks! 


  1. Oh, you are back! I was often thinking of you - how you are - and I see now that you are fine and so caringly occupied with the family. Wonderful photos! Bon courage!

  2. Wow, the pictures are amazing! I've been thinking of you too, especially when I had yet another poppy bloom!
    That first set of leaves is so beautiful! I don't recognize them. And as much goldenrod as we have here, I've never seen the gall.

  3. Gorgeous pictures! Don't downgrade your skill and eye - you are a real photographer too! Hope things are all looking up and you're back to needle and thread work soon. (I know all about masquerading as a blogger - it's been a very long time for me, too!)

  4. I feel there are people who take snapshots and people who take photographs. Snapshot people don't seem to be able to take photographs, but photographers are able when the need happens can take snapshot. You in my eyes are a photographer! Lovely photos and framing. Glad to see a new post.

  5. Wonderful photos. And the pumpkin looks great as is.

  6. I love fall foliage my smoke bushes are at their peak color and same with my Alice Oakleaf Hydrangea, I love how the hostas change into their yellow fall colors too.
