Some Spooky Projects

The temps sure have dropped here in Minnesota. I went from having the air-conditioning on full blast, (hubby's in a parka) to scrambling for a sweater and wooly socks! As many as you know, I love Halloween. I love the cooler days and crisp nights, the changing of the leaves and pumpkin spice everything! It's time to pull out some of my favorite projects and put them on display. I have been starting to pull out my Halloween projects and displaying them throughout my home. It's also a fun time to do some spooky stitching. I'm currently working on a Halloween quilt I'll be sharing with you soon! 

I enjoy putting this table runner featuring a black cat
waiting for the Trick or Treaters... I love the tiger striped pumpkins I found at the market last week!

 One of my favorite wall hangings is this cute 
black cat peeking out of a Jack o Lantern.... I'm

in love with the striped binding!

Out of some of my scraps I made this
wonky pumpkin coaster, or mug rug. I used
different sized buttons to add to the wonky-ness.

To make this wonky little pumpkin, I started out with a 6" square of orange fabric. Then I did a flip and sew with black fabric to make the 'corners'. I didn't pay attention to keeping it even, this adds to the wonky shape! I used heat n bond light and yellow fabric for the pumpkin's smile and nose. For his goofy little eyes I used two mismatched yellow buttons. A yo-yo embellishes his head for the stem. I used a 6" square of black fabric for the backing, and a piece of scrap batting. I had just enough left over binding for my mini coaster. It's a fun quick and easy project that uses up those little bits you may have left over from you fall, Halloween projects!

My Halloween isn't complete without Witchy Poo's Shoe....

Thank you for visiting. 
Happy quilting,
