#HalloweenBloghop: Halloween (Mis)Adventures

Image
Greetings and Happy Halloween! In day 2 of this blog hop (and on this Halloween) the subject is of Halloween adventures or misadventures. Many of us have gone on a Halloween adventure or two, be it to an old cemetery, or an abandoned asylum (I can proudly say that I've done both). In my novel Descent  (The Birthrite Series, #1), a Halloween adventure (or misadventures) starts the unraveling of many key events. Check out an excerpt that takes place at the very beginning of this Halloween escapade... EXCERPT: CHAPTER 27 T he Plains Cemetery was located near the center of town, stretching out over a field that led back into the woods. Forest hovered in the background, lining the town and trailing up the hill toward the thicket on the Fleming property. A ten-foot iron gate marked the entrance and a stone wall circled the grounds. Near the woods at the furthest left corner from the last row of tombstones was the care-taker's small pre-Civil War house. At night, t

Making an 18th Century Fire Bucket, Part 2

Image
Hello everyone! Here is the continuation of making my 18th century fire bucket in Glunn Klass. When I left off, I had just pounded the mould into the sewn leather that will be my bucket. And now here are the next steps... 1.) Trim the edges that are around the mould. 2.) Mark where the stitching on the edges will be. 3.) Take your best Thor hammer and pound the hell out of that mould until it's out from the bucket. 4.) Mark and drill the holes around what will be the bottom of the bucket.  5.) Glue a strip of leather around the interior of the bottom edge. 6.) Once the glue is dry, take a drill and put it through the original holes and into the inner strip. 7.) Using a saddle stitch, stitch in what will be the bottom of the bucket. 8.) Trim off the edges and you are on your way to the next step...which I will show you at another time. :) ***** For first access to giveaways and oth
