Merry meet all,
The Mighty Dead workshop is canceled!! Well that sucks. After all the hard work of the organizers and well me, it is now postponed to possibly happen in 2017. There wasn’t enough money raised for Penczak to come here.
I have soldiered on. I am now looking forward to autumn and the harvest from my garden, the movie Crimson Peak, to Mabon and Samhain. I have continued on with my ancestral worship. I have bought a cool item at the store of a raven sitting on a smiling skull. I had to take it home. I cleansed and purified it and meditated with it.
I bought black and silver nail polish. I saw someone had painted the moon phases on their nails. I am going to try to do the same on my nails. I hope I can do that successfully.
I love black. I love black clothing and silver jewellry. I now want to wear what magickally empowers me. It feels good. Also, black looks cool. Spirits are drawn to those who are different. So I try to express that in what I wear and what I do. Its the middle of summer but I love black. A summer dress feels so ordinary. We all know what the Owens aunts think about that, don’t we?
To be a Witch, you must be one in deed and word. I can dress as a Witch and send prayers to the Goddess all I want, but I have to do the magick too. I am really feeling more magickal these days as I shrug off the heavy skirts of my old depression and adopt a more devil may care attitude. It could also be that it’s summer too. That’s enough to cheer anyone.
I also finished my purple cloak. I have decided against lining the cloak. It is already self-lined and I now see no need to line it. I want to add purple trim down the front sides (openings) of the cloak. I finished sewing a beauteous black peasant blouse, my black godet skirt with a tulle over skirt, the black mighty dead ancestral altar cloth, and the black skull bag, The bag is now lined. I finished too the sheer purple/ blue peasant blouse. That was a lot of work. I have to finish the corset vest. I am not looking forward to that task. I bought an awl which is superior at tearing fabric than a hole punch in the way it tears fabric to allow a grommet to sit more snugly. So that is next. Ugh.
There are 80 odd days till Samhain. Stay tuned here for more exciting posts!
Blessed Be, Lady Spiderwitch )O(
