Happenings

August is the busiest month for me every year. Mostly because I am making school preparations for the smallish people's upcoming year, but also because I am trying to cram in as much art as possible before returning to our homeschooling routine. September is here and we're in our groove now, which means a little time to breathe and post some stuff.

Most of the month was dedicated to this lovely lady, a vintage cowgirl that I embroidered for a special friend on Craftster.





She's embroidered in one and two strands of floss and the finished size is 8". I should have considered the size beforehand because it would be nicer if it fit in a smaller hoop, but alas! forethought and me are not such good friends. 





Made some ATCs. Acrylic paint on cardboard of Todd McFarlane's Spawn, issue 1.

Pointillism ATC of our kitty, Chaircat Mao, dressed in a shirt and bow tie. Poor cat.





Making crocheted blocks for a Frida's Flowers blanket CAL on Craftster...it's slow progress. 





Destashed the mound of hoarded shirts by sewing a quilt for my son. 





Took a stroll through Bonaventure Cemetery and snapped loads of pictures.






Went to one of the hubs's shows. Just to be clear, I have one husband that played more than one show.



Took a random pic of Barbies in a bin. Zero effort there.





Now to clean up the craft table so I can go make a different mess with Alpha Stamps stuff.
