Good morning! 😁

I promise this is still a book account, I'm just really into and right now. I even woke up early to work on the current project! I had gotten probably about 1/3 done yesterday, then this morning decided to switch to Tunisian crochet and make a wrap.

I think it's gonna be pretty cool.

Finished my first tarot bag.

I did add a lining mostly because this is a kind of rough yarn and the cards kept getting stuck on it, but it's *very* clumsily sewn in and looks awful so I'm not gonna show that off. 😁

It works though, that's the important thing.

Working on another one already because it was so fun and quick.

Didn't finish the project and probably won't tonight, but i did get pretty far.

It has plenty of extra room so I'm thinking about adding a liner, maybe in green so it matches the deck even better. I'm terrible at sewing, but i think the outer bag will hide my clumsy stitches.

Daily card draw (Arthur Rackham Oracle)

The one on the right (Fortification: Arrayed in confidence) was the actual card draw, the left (Anxiety: Inertia born of doubts) just kept trying to escape while i was shuffling.

Seems like both a fitting match on their own and very approach appropriate for how I'm feeling today.

I loved everything at this table, I wanted to buy every single thing and had to hold myself back a lot.

Besides these great zines and prints, they're also a dollmaker and everything is just so sparkly and fun and PINK and awesome.

I think I was a little too hard on the journal and the staples came out, but I fixed it with some yarn and it still holds together.

Witchy Stuff!

I wish I'd bought both issues Tarot Manifest at the table because they're no longer available on the website so I might not have another chance. :( It's really cool, there's some neat gardening-inspired spreads inside I just love.

Rayne Klar does a *bunch* of really cool stuff you should check out.

A bunch of zines on this table had really cool and unique formats with moving parts and really fun art.

My favorite is this phone-shaped "Orc Seeking Orc" app where you swipe past each profile.

They're a lot of fun to look at and play with.

Cat zines!

Another thing I love is that *so many* people have zines that are basically "look at my cat(s)!" It doesn't matter what their other zines are, genre and style are irrelevant, look at this cat now.

Only one of these is from this year, but I wanted to show them all.

Comic delivery day!

Probably won't get to them till tomorrow but I am *excited* for these.

Related, the Disney Hawkeye series was really good and very much in the feel of the comics, though apparently they didn't pay David Aja for blatant use of his art/designs. I know they're allowed to do that, just encouraging people to check out the books too if you haven't yet because they're amazing and his art is so unique and interesting.

I found my favorite place in FFXIV so far, this magical fairy mushroom cave with adorable animal-like creatures.

So I sat down and ate some food hoping I'll have to stay there forever now. :blobheartcat:

I was talking to some friends about needing boy vieras in FFXIV and one of them said you could use the bunny head that was released recently as the closest thing.

Look, I'm a viera!

Not a single person recognized my costume but it's cool.

Fat transmasc Quentin Quire, yay!

My favorite part is the Quentin pin I definitely think he would wear if he saw it, and which made a convenient "I'm this guy!" non-explanation when people asked. XD

Partner's take: ... But. How will people know it's even a costume? That's just how you dress. True.

The comic store is open again since the state lockdown ended but I still haven't been able to get there. Luckily, they also do delivery now! So I was surprised with issue one of the new Sabrina comic and I'm very happy.

I'm about to go record a podcast episode so will read it after. I'll talk about Sabrina (tv show) then read about Sabrina! What a good day.

Maybe I'll even watch an episode of the sitcom later and get *all* the Sabrinas!

Animal Crossing 

It's past my bedtime but obviously this diner in my ACNH basement was too important.

It took me forever to find something I like enough for the floor. It's a weird, coffee and cake only diner. Like in Umbrella Academy but cakes instead of donuts!

And some couches on the other half that I tried to make look like the ones in Friends but I haven't seen it in a long time and don't know if I'm even close.

Made myself a witchy robe on Animal Crossing and then uploaded a bunch of palette-swapped versions.

Also made a really cute ritual space but those aren't my designs on the ground.


Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (comic), very mild spoilers, demonology? 

Tiny child Edward trying to summon Satan is so bizarrely adorable.

The Unicorn Club

I didn't do a lot of re-reads of novels but The Thief was read enough times that it's falling apart and has no cover.

I read a *lot* of other club-based series and it definitely affected the way I expect friendships to work.

Why doesn't everyone want to be in a family-like club and spend all our time together? XD
