thinking about October

dracula raven orchidYes.  Really.  I want to be ready for my show next October so I’m already sketching and scheming.  Yesterday I came across this plant.  It is a Dracula vampira orchid.  Yes.  There is a variety of orchid named Dracula with several variations, this all black one is my favorite.  You can read all about them here.

 

I have to make it.  Black velvet (I know, how many times have I sworn to never stitch black velvet again!), black felt, various shiny threads, pink felt in the middle… this is so perfect. 

 

My friend Anna also told me about a new species of carnivorous plant that can eat a rat.  Can you imagine a few of these sinister plants all grouped together!  I can.
