Family portraits

I decided to make a pattern out of one of my sketchbook paintings for the current Spoonflower weekly design challenge. The theme this week is family portraits, and I usually see a lot of portraits on a wall for this theme, so I didn't want to repeat that, though I did begin a design I'll call "snaps" if I ever complete it. I'll share a peek here just for the heck of it. I had also planned to do a fabric of just faces, which I'll still do, but another designer did one I loved, so I decided to hold off a bit on that. Happy Thanksgiving!

An homage to my beloved Grandma, and the many Thanksgivings we spent at her house in Petersburg, Virginia.

One of our regular car trips was the one we made on Thanksgiving.

This sketchbook painting was always meant as a jumping off point for a surface design.

And by the way, if you've had your eye on that cute little chevron fabric or anything else on Spoonflower, now's the time to get two fat quarters for the price of one until 10pm EST Thursday November 12th (that's tomorrow).

Here's a photo of the printed fabric from my entry of 2 weeks ago, Kitties of the zombie apocalypse,which managed to make the top ten in the contest.

Black-cat-a-day 30 & 31: Masquerade

At last I've come to the end of my daily project. It's been such fun. Now I just have time to get ready for trick-or-treaters. Happy halloween!

Black-cat-a-day 27 & 28: Miss Havisham's cake

The days grow shorter. The air grows nippier (or as in Los Angeles, slightly less blistering) and I have actually purchased candies from the grocer in anticipation of Halloween. Just a few more black cat days to go, so here's a nod to Dickens' Great Expectations, in which our dear Miss H, jilted at the altar, lives out her days dressed in her tattered wedding gown amid the ruins of her reception feast.

The groom didn't show: Miss Havisham's cake. Yummy.
