I have no use for it....yet.
But it was 50% off and I couldn't resist :)

Happy Fall Y'all

This is a pattern I bought about 3 years ago and never did anything with. As I was decorating for the upcoming holiday, I realized that I didn't have anything fall/halloween'ish for my table and remembered I had the pattern. It called for a black background but instead I re-used and recyled an old coat that I was going to throw out! The brown tweedy fabric worked perfect as a background, and to me, made it look more like fall than Halloween.

Latest Projects

I have a bunch of projects to show but I'm going to space them out and not show them all at once, that way I might actually update this blog a little more often :)
The latest project is Christophers Halloween costume. The Scarecrow from Batman. I have a little more detail work to finish on it but you get the idea. It was pretty simple to do once I figured out that by using some fusible web on the inside, the burlap would actually hold together better. It's woven together so loosely that everytime I put a handstitch in it would just come apart.

And this little baby is finally finished! My Pinwheel Sampler. Well, the top anyway. I LOVE the way it turned out!! I added some extra borders because I'd like to use it on our bed sometime and I needed it a little longer on the sides. I hope to work on it over Christmas break.

Lots more to show later this week :)
