blackbird in an octopus's garden
sunday's projects were beatles-inspired, i guess. well, the blackbird was, for sure. the idea for that came directly from the beatles song. i have it on a mix that i made recently and was listening to it and decided to make some blackbirds. so this is the first of what will probably be a collection. and the octopus, well, i actually started him months ago but he wasn't turning out quite as i had envisioned, so i kinda gave up on him. but this weekend, as i was rummaging around in one of my fabric piles, i found his unstuffed little body and decided to give him another try. once stuffed, he still wasn't all that great, but then i added the mustache and that is when he became special.
