WIP Wednesday: Spooky Kitties

Halloween Cat Bunting spans about seven feet... perfect for our built-in book shelves.

These past two days have felt like an entire week. Fall is such a busy time for magazine publishing as issues are crammed with booze, holiday, and winter travel advertising. I am busy printing, knitting, and bookbinding for Luna Market and other fall and holiday maker markets while my work days have become increasingly busy.

Yesterday was a particularly problem-solving kind of day. I carved this block on Sunday knowing I would come home to a quiet house last night to print, trim, and string this Halloween Cat bunting was just what I needed. Sometimes a little project just for fun is the balm I need to soothe my overworked brain.

This project has me in the mood to watch some witchy movies this weekend.

October is just around the corner and that means lots of celebrations at Chez Vee*.

* Chez Vee (for Van Landingham) is what I’ve named our charming red cottage style home.

The very air between them seemed to crackle…

To the untrained eye this may look like I have plans for a weekend curled up reading mild romance novels. I’ve been visiting the Lions Club weekly to scoop up these and some lovely hard cover books for a couple projects. If you came out to see me on Saturday you may have noticed the paper valentine garland hung on the front of my booth. I had hoped to make at least a few of these to sell but only had time to pop out this prototype using stamps.

If you read the flags closely you can see I made this valentine bunting out of Harlequin Romance novel pages. I am certain not one person realized it, but I knew. And it made me smile.

Let’s Keep in Touch!

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.
