Well, the cloak I was working on has gotten scrapped. The pattern was not working for the intended audience. Didn’t bother finishing since it is a drafting for a particular purpose. Thus it was all frogged out. Bleh. I am still trying to make a pattern. Just slow going for me. We’ll see.
So, as part of the decor Dragon and I had altars and Monkey had something similar with his medical spread. He went as a plague doctor.
This is my altar. And the plague doctor struck, leaving one of his vile rats behind! Continue reading
Over the years, I have frequently been asked how I can watch my pinatas being busted up after I’ve spent so many hours working on them. Here’s my attempt to answer that.

At about every party our family hosts, there is a pinata. I dunno, I just love them. Doesn’t matter the occasion, I find people love to beat them to crap. 🙂 So, I made one for Halloween!

This has nothing to do with Halloween. But I figured I’d share the huskies that I painted for Dragon’s field hockey team. You can’t see it in the photo, but they are painted onto wooden sticks.
I added elements to the corset to give color to the outfit and to pull it together with the head dress.
I separated out the sections of the corset by unlacing and unhooking it. This made it lay flat and ensured that I didn’t get glue on pieces other then the one I was actively working on. Continue reading
I took one of the feathers and stripped the end of it. Then cut the tip into a slanting point. Lastly, colored the tip black. Then I dropped the end in a jar to make a writing quill to add to the decor.
Easiest Halloween thing I made!
