In which I talk about Drachenfest and the great pidgeon conspiracy.
I’m sorry it’s been so quiet during the last two weeks here but I did little more than sleep, work, eat and prep for my favourite week of the year: ConQuest.
When you read this I’m either already on the road to Brokeloh or most probably running in circles, flailing and shouting because I’m not sure what I forgot to pack.
I hope you have a most wonderful week (after which I’ll hopefully throw post after post at you showing off all the things I made lately) because I know I will.
I love you all and I’m looking forward to see you after this adveture.
Hugs and kisses,
UFO Friday is my (usually) bi-weekly series where I show you what projects I’ve been working on (UFO standing for UnFinished Objects). For more of these, look here and for every other week’s feature, Finished Things Saturday, look here.
As always I’ve been doing quite some darning. Keeping my clothes wearable is one of my favourite things to do – and I even like it when it’s visible that they’ve been worn, torn and mended a few times.
With my work pants I’ve established the habit that they all get a secondary colour for mending. My black work pants have a yellow back pocket, and my tan ones get green. The pockets were in no real condition to put anything in there anymore so I finally replaced them with some secondhand placemat fabric.
Of course I’m crafting for ConQuest like a madwoman. My most current project were these small pennants to mark which of the sleeping tents are ours. The stencils came out a little bit messier than I would have liked them to be but overall I’m really pleased about the final result.
Gotta stop typing now, I’m being tickled and somebody’s trying to hit random keys as I write. I love my friends. ^^

I’ve been really lucky in terms of thrifting pretty print fabrics lately, especially small tablemats and pillow covers. Some of them still have lace on them so I finally took out the seam ripper and made them into actual “just” pieces of fabric.Wednesday morning Scoundrel came to me and asked if I could make a last-minute ban cloth for a LARP character with a dangerous artifact. Of course I could with a little help from my scrap heap and some white acrylic paint, and for once there is an action shot, too!Speaking of LARP I’m colouring my countdown as I go and cross off the days left to conquest. I know that some others have printed it as well and are already done colouring, that makes me so happy!
Have a wonderful weekend! ♥
