Look What I Won

I won the 500th blog post from Kim at Tabby's Place.  Isn't it beautiful.  I was so excited when it came in the mail.  It is an altered fabric book cover.  Right up my alley.  This is the front.

This is the back.  If you haven't been to Kim's blog pop over and take a look.   She has some amazing things to look at.

I had cataract  surgery about 3 weeks ago, so it really put me behind on getting ready for the Oktoberfest.  Now I am playing catch up, but the surgery was worth it.  I was having trouble seeing at night and in low light.  What a difference now, colors are so bright and pretty.  Can't wait to get the other eye done in October.  Don't have to wear contacts anymore either.  Yay!

I have gotten a few things done I would like to share with you.

 This is a 3D book cover collage.

This wall hanging is made from a lovely old book cover.  

I used an old clock to create this piece.

The weather was gorgeous here today, sunny and cool.  We have had quite a bit of rain finally, so things have greened up as well.  I love fall.  Hope you all enjoy your Thursday.

Hugs Jackie
