PROUDLY PRESENTING "ROAD KILL"

BEWARE . . . THE FOLLOWING PICTURES MAY BE DISTURBING . . .



As you can see "Road Kill" has had a very active life. . . my nieces (ages 1 to 12) were the ones who gave him his name . . . it has to do with that strange English humor which my husband's family possess . . . so after 37 years of marriage I found that I went along with their sick humor and had to take pictures of "road kill" in a street (middle picture taken before he was felted and picture on the right was after he was felted and stuffed)! I know sick!!! sick!!! sick!!!!!! . . . he and I did have a strange love / hate relationship and it will be quite a while before I do another one . . . I did learn how to make short rows with him so something good came out of it and the really amazing thing is my husband absolutely LOVES "road kill" . . . . so it looks like "road kill" will be staying with us and the granddaughter and nieces can pay their respect when they visit us.

Here is a better picture of him! . . . he does grow on you!!!! I can't believe that SP8 will be over shortly . . . what they say is true "time goes by fast when you are having fun" and I have been having a lot of fun not only gifting someone special and getting to know them . . . but in being gifted . . . I can't wait to find out who that person is . . . well got to go and eat dinner . . . so until later . . . ladybug kisses!!!!!!!

We have grown to love the ammish look . . . so for now he will stay that way unless he freaks out the kids . . .
