Eye Candy Friday...

...Happy October!

Today's eye candy is a combination of cut flowers and garden flowers.

When I delivered the commissioned quilt, my client gave me a small bouquet of flowers. It's very cut, and perfect for my desk at work.

I haven't had a bouquet that contains ornamental cabbage before. It's very cool:

As for craft projects, I just finished row 51 of 62 on Beyond Antares [Ravelry] and I'd like to get closer to done this weekend. I'm also debating whether to do Socktoberfest, but Beyond Antares takes precedence.  Then there are all of the other projects I have in process.
