The next big decorating holiday coming up is Halloween. You can tell by the way the stores look. My Etsy shop is no different!
I am in the mood to put together some creepy cute things! I made some more pins to go with the other Halloween pins I have.
These are a few of the new guys. They are trying to be spooky but it’s not really working out for them. Maybe they need a home, because without the house to haunt they just look like whiners. I’m just sayin’ – T
It seems like I haven’t been sharing much of what I’ve been doing lately. I guess I have been actually doing stuff! I have pushed the clay to the side for a bit (not really, just in my head, it’s still all over the dining room).
My sister-in-law’s quilt guild had a mini retreat this past Saturday. I offered to help her make some thread bags, one for each attendee. We made 35 all together. A thread bag is usually just a paper bag, taped to the table, to catch the threads you clip off of whatever you’re sewing. Yeah, a little trash bag. So rather than making life easy and using paper, we decided to sew fabric bags. 35 is a bigger number than we first thought!
I also gave everyone a couple of decorative pins. I had to get a little polymer clay in there!
It was fun to surprise them with a little something. – T
Just sitting out here in the pumpkin patch, waiting for The Great Pumpkin. I, like Linus, have never seen him…
I’m guessing it’s because I don’t stay up until midnight in a cold pumpkin patch!
Not happening. – T
Ok, maybe not quite. I really do feel the pull of the Halloween spirit. At least I think that’s what that tugging is. Last week the tugging was the new cat playing with my apron strings, while I was doing the dishes and wearing the apron! OUCH!
This week it’s a little something for your sewing room or voodoo doll.
I just put this up on Etsy. I really like this pincushion too, because I can close it! Then it’s just an unassuming little coffin. Yeah, it is a little different. You never know when you might need to repair someone…um, I mean, something! – Tina
