I've never been a huge fan of Halloween, but I do love autumn & fall stuff - especially pumpkins and crows. Last October when we took the long 12 hour drive to California, I started this little stitchery by drawing a design onto muslin backed with cotton batting. I outlined it and filled in with a gazillion x's. Finally got it trimmed to an oval shape last week and attached it to a piece of orange wool using a blanket stitch - then added a backing and bound it with black fabric like a quilt.
Now I just hope I can find it when fall comes so that I can display it in my home - I have a habit of forgetting what I have and where I put it! LOL
We had a small turnout at rug hooking earlier this week - because of sickness & travel & other reasons. Tonia was finishing up a rug that she designed - Daniel & the Lions. Isn't it cool? She has recently started blogging and is going to be selling her designs soon - you can visit her HERE at Baa Ram Ewe Designs. Her hubby is a very talented woodworker and she shows some of the things he's made for her in an earlier post - stop over and see!
I spent some time with my friend Kathy a couple days ago and got to see all her recently completed elves lined up across the top of her piano. She's named each one - and each one is sold already! When you see them in person, the detail just blows you away! She makes the faces and hands using Sculpey clay and their expressions are amazing!
She also had these darling little footprints out in her yard that I just fell in love with - need to find some rocks the right size and shape to do this myself! She found the idea on Pinterest - don't you just love that place?
