Eegads!

Okay, I kind of don't know where to start. It's been so long since my last post but I've been working on things for the Expo and working on the manuscript to get it ready for a writer's conference. Two friends have seen what I have so far for the show and they say I have a lot. Of course I don't think that way, me being my own worse critic, etc, etc, etc, and I'm thinking that I've got so much more I want to do. Like pirates and some ghost people. I mean, hello!!! Halloween is coming.

I had a nice four day weekend to really get some things done and worked on and wouldn't you know it? I got sick. Yep, a grand sinus infection. There were times I could barely sit up, let alone look at or concentrate on something. I'm a little behind but started to catch up today.

Here is Skele Pirate Man. He's huge. I have so many plans for him and I finally got his legs on. I have to start going through my fabric stash for some clothes.

I started armatures for his arms and hands that will be needle felted. His body is wrapped with wool batting and then covered with core wool.

I finally got all my Wandi Witches put together. All 23 of them. These guys need their bloomers and skirts which will get sewn on this week. The black and white ones are the goth ones. I'll be painting faces all week too. Then I get to go get trim and charms for embellishing these little beauties.

I also started three more Koji bears that will either be pirates or trick-or-treaters. I've got to get arms for the bunners so I can get them dressed. Today has been good so far. I still have time after dinner to work on my manuscript and do some needle felting.

I am so ready for FALL!!!!!!! This has been the summer from the equator and then some. Does anyone smell brimstone?

And I'd like to welcome Karin to the fun. Didn't see a link. Hi Karin!

Wendy- I feel your pain! There should be a rule against being sick in the summer-and such a struggle to get back into the swing of things afterwards! Oh my gosh- skelly man! He is incredible- I can't wait to see more! How happy all those witches look all piled up too- you are going to rock that Expo- I wish I could come! I hope you keep feeling better every single day ♥

Thanks Kim, I know you'll be at the Expo in spirit. Today is a lot better. I can breath and no longer have several frogs in my throat. ;) You have a great week.

Catching Up

Really working on keeping up with the sketching. I got a head cold on the way to South Haven and then when I got home it turned into a sinus...
