I finished Talking to the Dead by Harry Bingham and Ruby Red by Kerstin Geir and enjoyed both of these very different books.
Currently reading A Study in Revenge by Kieran Shields which is also holding my attention that fits this month of spooks and supernatural. This is the first year since its inception that I haven't participated in Carl's R.I.P. Challenge, and only because I just wasn't paying attention when it rolled around this year--but this book would certainly be a good entry for the challenge.
After a run of mediocre books, I've had some great success in my last 8-10 reads, but I've also begun several books that didn't really catch my attention. I may return to several of these at a later date and see if giving them a bit more time will improve my opinion.
Still playing with book folding and tried some embroidery on book pages.
And another book doll. The head piece on this Eccentric Figure is a silk cocoon...I think it makes sense as this character is definitely somewhat of a "bookworm."
Now, I'm busy with Halloween stuff. I like Joanna Parker's designs have been inspired to make some whimsical little creatures like Dandy, the baby crow.
Just finished a burlap wreath with fabric bats and needle felted ghosts and have several more projects in the works.
Making Halloween items is such fun, and although I started late this year, I'm enjoying all the playfully spooky crafting.
