Badgerween is a black and white stripy celebration of Halloween from the Badger Sett – a group of compassionate creatives fundraising for the Badger Trust.  We are supporting their badger vaccination project, a positive alternative to the cull which is being increasingly rolled out across the UK.

How gorgeous are these textile are badgers from Maysie Daydreams?

The badgers are available in Amanda’s online shop here.

And you can pre-order some of this scrummy Truffle Hunter Yarn from Mad Scientist Yarns:

And there will be lots more coming soon, including project bags from Annie at Busy Pottering, who has found the cutest fabric!

I’m also still busy drawing things,and have been following some of the prompts for #mabsdrawlloweenclub on Instagram.  I wanted to draw something that touched on why the Badger Sett exists – so drew some ghost badgers, a haunted badger cage and a laboratory…

These drawings for #Badgerween and #mabsdrawlloweenclub have turned into a little story about why I started the Badger Sett, a group of creatives fundraising for @badgertrust 🐾👻🐾 1. The #ghost badgers haunt the silent fields in their thousands. The wild landscapes they used to call home bereft of their digging paws and soft sounds. Uprooted and lost, they search for their old setts, crossing roads and drifting through supermarket car parks, meandering through dead grass where bees used to buzz. 🐾 2. If only each badger trapped and shot could warn the next badger not to enter the cage… #hauntedobject. 🐾 3. In the #laboratory, scientists plot and plan and explore less deathly ways to deal with bTb and keep our badgers safe…
