A Bit Of Crafting

Haven't been doing any Cross Stitch or Hardanger in the last few weeks, but I have been picking up a needle and doing a little bit of hand sewing and machine sewing. 

Decided to make a few more Autumn/Fall bits.

 A couple of tall skinny pumpkins, lots of hand sewing and one machine sewn seam.

My Monster had a bandanna that he ripped so I decided to make a Halloween Pumpkin out of it, keeping with the black and white theme of the bandanna.

 'Boo Baby'
I figured with all of the pumpkins I've made I needed to try making a Ghost to go with them. Here he is all Primed out in canvas fabric with a coffee stain and dye.

 Boo Baby flying through the pumpkin patch. He's only eight inches long and seven inches tall. I think I'll need to make a few more in a couple of different sizes maybe even a few different shapes. 
I need to figure out a bat and a crow pattern to go with the pumpkins too.

We don't get any Trick or Treater's here at the Cabin very small town and an area with little to no street lights equals people taking their kids to the main street areas of town or the bigger towns near by not out into the rural areas, so I hardly ever decorate with Halloween in mind.

That's it for today everyone, thank you for stopping by the Cabin and having a look around.
Until next visit.......

Take Care & Happy Craftin'
Hugs, Sandy

  3. Hi Sandy! It's been a real treat perusing your beautiful blog. I'm sitting on our 4-season sun porch (like being outside, so pretty much the pets' living room), and I have my desktop and the colors on your blog are the same as what's on the ground from my big maple, blending together magnificently with your blog. There are two trees that still have some shedding to do, but I'm thinking I should go out and start raking what's there. I want to look at it a day longer before taking away the thick blanket of color. It's the perfect time to be looking at your lovely blog and the fruits of your labor in the garden, your sewing machine, dying, stitching, designing, and craftiness from little bits of nothing, really. You've really made a lovely life with your own hands. Thanks, Sandy, for a wonderful visit!

  4. Love those tall pumpkins the look great along with the ghost. How clever,


Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to leave your thoughts behind. They are truly appreciated and help keep me motivated to continue doing the things I love.
