I made a small journal (3.75 x 5.75) for vacation to tuck into my backpack. I had an old pencil box with colored pencils, a black pen and a few pastels. It was a 6 day music/event festival and  I managed to get a few sketches done, very quick and fun. But really, I just had fun and did not think of my journal very often.

Afternoon concerts were at the Acoustic stage is in a beautiful setting, a natural bowl surrounded by trees.

What else do you draw when you are sitting around but feet?

Easy Street is a woods path that industrious womon decorated with thousands of glow sticks plus an art work or two. While this drawing does not capture the fairy effect of glow sticks at night, close your eyes and imagine a deeply wooded path aglow!

The night stage was entered this year by a wonderful structure constructed of branches and fairy lights.

And a spirit doll to watch over us all.

And the cover of the journal.

It has been a lovely Labor Day weekend... usually it's a crazy weekend for me because my birthday is tomorrow, but we kept it low-key this year.

Beth came down to finish my Margaery Tyrell dress:

AND Damson got to see me get a tattoo!

(That's from Ray Bradbury's The Martian Chronicles. Also a poem that he was quoting. But I know it from Bradbury.)

One more day to hang out, clean up, and prepare myself to go back to work!

My completed project (I just can't get this photo to show up any larger!)

So, I started this project in 2005 (yes, folks, 2005), and FINALLY FINISHED!  "What took so long?" one might ask.  "Sure, it's a GIGANTIC cross-stitch project, but still---9 years?!"

Well, what took so long was my strange obsession with not following the pattern.   *ha ha*

This kit, based on Charles Wysocki's painting Frederick the Literate, had, I noticed, lost something in translation from painting to cross-stitch pattern. 

The original Wysocki painting

The original pattern (close-ups are of areas of the pattern that I ultimately altered to be less blocky, or I changed the titles of)

So, to make it more like the original, I free-drew the parts I didn't like, using thread as the medium---which meant I wasn't using the 1/2 stitches the pattern called for, but more like 1/18ths; and all the text in the original pattern?---I ignored the pattern completely, and free-embroidered to match the titles on the original painting as much as possible.

It was the text that got me.  Such a challenge to hand-write in embroidery thread that it took me *forever* to finish the book titles---I'd do a title or two then put it down until I had the patience to do the next.

My version:

So, there you have it.  All done!

Oh, and silly me, I realized in making this post that I'm NOT DONE YET!  I missed THE WHISKERS!  Ha ha!  What a dork!  So, still a little more to go---
But you get the idea!  lol

(Above painting is one of the pieces)
So I won first place for two paintings in an art contest, which also includes having my paintings hang in a gallery for a month and really, I'm freaking out.  I've always just painted for myself, maybe given a piece of two to family or friends, but now it's all out there in the public for everyone to see! And long story short, I really don't feel like an artist or all that  great at painting!  Ack!  
The art show is on Friday and I have no idea what to wear or to expect.  I know my fellow Craftsters are fantastic at advice and I could really use some!  Thanks in advance if you have any for me!

another 2 of the journal pages

Here is a bills/receipts folder; some green floss; a beaded wire bracelet in my favorite colors; two owl pendants,  the pink one looks as if he is napping Smiley and a coffee sleeve in all my favorite colors--love it!!

this is a bottle of citrus/lavender body wash, and a whole huge bunch of postcards with bible verses and phrases that I will use to send to people whose names we draw the beginning of each month at church to pray for each other.

Thanks so very much Christine!! Love all the goodies you have sent me. I am finishing up a couple of your items today Smiley

Note from the Headmistress...

This semester I will be offering 3 extra Challenges.  Each Headmistress Challenge will be themed to the season, will last 1 month, and will earn 15 House Points just like Classes.  So what is up first?

Headmistress Challenge - September
September 1 - September 30

September marks many new beginnings.  The beginning of autumn and harvest time, as well as a new school year for students and teachers.  With the shorter ays and cooler nights, it also marks the beginning of apple picking season.  For this challenge you must create something containing apples, something you might find at an apple orchard, or something inspired by apples or apple trees.  Ideas include making your favorite apple pie, spiced apple preserves, apple butter, apple cider.  Not into cooking?  How about  appliqued apple coasters, amini apple quilt, or a knitted apple friend.

Remember:  Any cooking projects submitted must include a complete recipe (in recipe format) or a link to the complete recipe, as well as a photo.  Without these you will not receive House Points.

Please note you are welcome to do any, all or none of these challenges as they come up throughout the semester.  They are not intended to cause stress, but are instead intended to get your crafty Muses singing.  None of the HPC staff will complete ALL the classes and challenges posted this semester.  So relax, and craft what you love.
