This is Halloween

Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn't you like to see something strange?

Ghost cupcakes!

These are my second attempt at making some halloween crochet cupcakes, the first batch came out wrong :/ im much happier with these ones. I am middle of making the Halloween crumblin, i was hoping to get it finished for tomorrow but im still super weary.

A chance to show off my spooky toys :D
my first batch on halloween cupcakes bleh. Hello Kitty's pumpkin suit rules though! :D

I finished reading hannibal, i didnt know it had a different ending to the film version. I dont really like how it ended in the book. Anyone else read it? what are your thoughts?
Im now reading "Marilyn Manson -The Long Hard Road Out of Hell" takes me back to my mini mosher days hehe.

Hope you all have a super spooky day tomorrow!

I suck :P

Sorry for the lack of updates again, ive been busy will appointments & being ill blurg!
I have been working of Halloween cupcakes but they did not turn out at all how i wanted. I'm hoping to give them another go with adding some spooky confetti for sprinkles. I will take pictures of my first batch but i keep forgetting to do while the light is right, gloomy flat!

I have just ordered some black faux fur & orange spider web frabic that i am going to turn into a Halloween version of a Crumblin :D I will have to get ordering fabric for christmas presents soon as well.
As i have nothing crafty to show you, here is my awesome new jumper!

I need to get a cheesy christmas jumper now!

As for reading i am in the middle of two books, "Dynamic of Destruction: Culture and Mass Killing in the First World War Making of the Modern World-Alan Kramer" and "Hannibal-Thomas Harris"

sewing tapirs


I wanted to try something a little different with my Tapirs and I've had this idea in my head for yonks now. Overall im happy with how it turned out but next time i think i'll try different stitches and darker thread.
Im not sure how to mount this either, maybe back it onto some card or try and get hold of those cross stitch frames but in a sqaure shape instead of the circle ones.

This is all i have got up to this week as Pete has been on holiday, geeking out watching stargate together while i sew has been nice :)

I asked Pete what I should draw the other night in bed and as his head is filled with all things cute he told me to draw tapirs (of course) at the seaside.

And that gave me the idea for a seasonal tapir playing in the autumn leaves

Though I had a lot of trouble trying to get this to scan nicely, its still not right but i give up! the real picture is slightly different colours and not at all grainy! I want to show off my sexy marker blending skills hehe i was so pleased with how this one came out in person so its really annoying i cant show it looking the same.
I want to do some more happy tapir seasons themed drawings, puddle splashing! Also want to do some halloween art.
