TUSAL October

I was looking up at the sky on Monday morning as I was walking to the bus stop and was greeted by a gorgeous dawn sky. A beautiful crescent moon, tons of stars. I even saw Orion, the only constellation I can recognize.

"Self" I thought "you must take a photo (if you can)". So today I went out with the camera. I had somehow failed to grasp that a few days after the crescent moon comes a new moon. Oh well, I might be able to have a good Halloween picture at any rate.

This month's TUSAL picture:

The bit of red is from Cirque des Cercles, the black from Sleepy Hollow, the green from Why Hoard Gold? and the bit of blue is from the RR I'm working on now.

In the background is a souvenir stein I picked up in Germany last summer. I'm one of those tourists that's keeping the tacky/kitschy/silly/stereotypical souvenir industry in business. I just love having stuff from countries I've been to. (And yes I sometimes count airports if it's unlikely I'll get to the actual country anytime soon.)

Nice to see that you are making progress on different projects! Your blog is so fun. Thanks for your wonderful comments on mine, so that I could find you.
I'm addicted to bag making too! They are the best, right?
