Gotta Love 'Em .. Scarecrows!

I was hoping to get this penny rug completed today so that I could list it tonight on Ebay, but it's taken a lot longer to finish than I expected. I worked quite a few hours on it yesterday .. in fact it was actually almost the entire day yesterday, I just don't want to admit how much time I really put into this instead of being outside and doing other things I should have been doing on a beautiful fall day.
But it is almost done. I just need to put the backing on it which really shouldn't take too long. This penny rug turn out more complicated just because I kept adding the little details. The picture doesn't show the entire penny rug ... I'll show that tomorrow when it's completed, but it has this same design on the other end so that added to the time because I had to do it all twice!
I added this little spiderweb and spider right after I finished sewing on the pumpkins.
It was a big mistake to add that spider because throughout the rest of my sewing time, I kept forgetting it was there. I would catch it out of the corner of my eye and it would SCARE me each time! If I ever do anything like this again, I'm going to add the spider in LAST.

Ok, I'm going to attempt to add this video in. I hope it works.
It's a video of the grandson grooming their cat.
It's really funny because they recently purchased (Ebay)a "Furminator" and it really works well. He loves the Furminator. He is a constant commercial for the Furminator. So the first time I saw him use the Furminator on the cat, it was so cute that I wanted to get a video of it to send to Rachel. K, the ham that he is, loved the idea of my phone taking videos, so he offered to do the commercial again and again for me just so that he could see himself on my phone.
So now, everytime I go over there to babysit, he wants me to take pictures of him Furninating the cat.
This video is probably something like take # 60. We've done it so many times, exactly the same way that I've lost count! Maybe the Furminator company will see this blog and hire my little grandson for their commercial.
That's all for now. Rachel drove home today for a visit, which was a wonderful surprise, so we're going to spend the day appreciating her.
Happy Day everyone!

**EDIT* I can't hear the sound on the video and that's the cutest part. Oh well. He's saying
"It's a Furminator, it takes off kitties hair!".

Love the spider web! (and the spider) If you think that's scary, I jumped when helping out in the kindergarten room several years ago. There was the tarantula fur/skin on top of the cage. The teacher left it there once the tarantula shed, but the tarantula was still in the cage below. Out of the corner of my eye, it sure looked real!

I hear you about the ebay top rated seller. I haven't sold enough, either. I might have a put a note in the about me section and state why I don't have the rating.

Kaiden is adorable! He would make a great spokesperson for Furminator!

And the penny rug is awesome! I laughed so hard about you forgetting you put the spider on the other end!

Have a great week!
