Final Check in:
Are you and your partner going to open on starting on the 1st or waiting until later in the month??

Gosh, I hadn't thought about waiting until later in the month.  I guess I will let my partner decide.  Wink

Nicely done, Magpirate!  I dream of growing my own foodstuffs some day, but I'm one of those people who could kill a silk plant, so.... maybe I'll get around to trying to grow some herbs on my patio one of these days.

Another successful day of work done with my crafty BFF.  I now have 6 projects totally finished, 4 that just need to be assembled, and parts purchased for 5 or 6 more.  I'm sure I'll be sending out on the last day, but it looks like I'll get something at least small crafted for all 13 days.  Since I went out and bought several items as well, I'll combine the smaller projects with something purchased to make those days more substantial.

Hoping I can get some after-work crafting done this week, so I can leave the weekend to get everything wrapped and packed!

Prompt: September Mob
Team: Multimedia
Project Name:
Purple Figure Study Painting
Brief Description: I made a painting for my home office/craft room.  Most of the stuff I post for craftalongs are things I make for swaps, so it feels nice to take the time to craft something for myself.  I chose the purple color to fit in with a challenge going on in the Harry Potter Craftalong.  The entire thing is done in a single hue (the shading results from applying different amounts of pressure and limiting the amount of paint on my brush).  It is pretty amateurish, but considering I worked on it for less than 90 minutes, I'm decently satisfied with it.  I used a source photo I found on the internet, which was cropped smaller than the scope of my canvas.  I had to "make up" the edges, and I just let the bottom edge trail out.  (In the posted photo, it kind of ends up looking like pixelation/a censor bar to me.  Roll Eyes)
Project Picture: (Note: There's nothing graphic/"private" in the painting, but I know that figure study is not everyone's cup of tea, so for courtesy's sake I've added the Mature tag.)

Piggy-backing off of Ludi's nerdgasm from earlier, I also received a book from overseas this week.  It is not nearly as obscure as Ludi's find, but I was still pretty darn excited to get my mitts on it:

Class/Challenge/House Pride: Bertie Bott's - Aubergine
House: Ravenclaw
Project Name:
Purple Figure Study Painting
Brief Description: It's been a long time since I crafted something specifically for an HPC prompt.  Everything I've been working on lately has been for the Mini 13 Days of Halloween Swap, but my partner won't be opening that up until October, so I sat down tonight and thought about what I might want to craft for the current Bean.  It's been ages since I took out my paints, so I sat down and did this in about an hour or so.  It's based off of a photo I found on the internet.  The source photo is cropped smaller than the scope of my canvas, so I had to make up the edges and I just let the bottom part trail off.  The whole thing is done in one only one hue of purple -- the shading is achieved by applying different amounts of pressure and keeping minimal paint on the brush.  it is pretty amateurish looking, but considering I only worked on it for less than 90 minutes, I'm relatively satisfied with it.
