New Norcia 2016 and New Tattoos

I've had a few adventures lately.

I visited the annual Library Lecture at New Norcia again this year. It included a tour of the cemetery which was interesting. I bought my parasol with me so I wouldn't get burned, which turned out to be a great idea as there's no shade anywhere in New Norcia.

Last Tuesday I travelled down south to Bunbury to get a tattoo from Ebony Mellowship. I've been looking forward to this for ages, and I really enjoyed my time with her. She was so gentle, and I had no trouble sitting for 7 hours. You can follow her on facebook or instagram under Ebony Mellowship.

Adam Ant tattoo!!

I also bumped into a reader of my blog, Dani. She used to have a blog of her own. It was really great meeting her in person! She took this little photo to put in her alternative clothing shop :)

I don't have any exciting plans for this Halloween. I'm going to stay in with some films and my cross stitch. 
I wish all my readers a happy Halloween! Stay safe.

New cross stitch, and a night out

I have been keeping my fingers busy with lots of cross stitching. It's a great tool for a lonely spinster such as myself ;-)

I made this for a coworkers birthday. Pattern available on Etsy from Ampyfied

This pattern took me a very long time to finish, the end result is fantastic. The pattern calls for yellow bats, but I made them grey instead. Pattern available on Etsy from DeepKalio

Games of Thrones cross stitch! I love how it looks like a tapestry. I haven't washed or ironed this yet, so it's a bit wrinkled. Available on Etsy from Ad Leones

On Saturday 1st October I was lucky enough to DJ at the goth night The Gathering. Lots of fun, and my makeup turned out really well.
