Scare E Crow thinks he is doing his job. It seems he is oblivious to the crow on his head!
The moon is looking rather dapper, wouldn’t you say? Little Mittens the kitty is just looking for trouble I think.
Is that Mittens hiding behind the hat?
It looks like Lil Goblin‘s treat bag is full – the candy is start to overflow. I love the little feet poking out of the bottom of the costume. So cute.
Hmmm. Zelda doesn’t have any feet?! Trick-or-treater or real goblin?
These are great little take along projects. After the embroidery you can add embellishments.

Though it’s still warm, summer is over. The kids are back to school and the weather will be changing soon. And before we know it Halloween will be here. Here’s some cute Halloween patterns.
Hang this Trick or Treat Banner on your front porch or in your window to let the neighborhood kids know that you are “open for business” – you have candy and are welcoming ‘trick-or-treaters’! It’s a felted wool design with hand embroidery…. cute and colorful, and just a little wacky.
There’s quite a dance going on here with the Goofy Ghosts leading the way. The Circle of Friends includes pumpkins, owls, bats and even the brooms are taking part, dancing around the center of black cats. The applique can be done by hand or machine – your choice.
October Jacks is a quick, cute 12″ x 12″ project with a 3D look to it. The button bat, the eyes on the tree and even the rope on the fence give this quilt a unique look.
Would real Bats In The Belfry give you the shivers? They would me! I’ll take them contained in this table runner, thank you very much. Instructions are included for place mats, too. Perfect for a halloween party.

Are you heading to the beach this summer? Not, and wish you were?
Trade your normal commute to work for Rush Hour Traffic, Beach Style. Dig into your stash to make these fish that don’t seem to mind the crowd. All the gentle curves add wavy motion, and the button embellishments add dimension and whimsey.
Here’s another stash project. Over a dozen flip flops surround the beach blanket that holds everything a beachgoer might need. Linda Zokan of Thistledown used batiks in Beach Walk and they look great!
How about a giant Fancy Flip Flop Pillow? The kids will love these! Take it to the beach (the straps make it easy to throw it over your arm or shoulder leaving your hands free to carry all your other stuff) or use it inside on the rainy days. There are endless design possibilities!
If you are going to the beach, you’ll need a way to carry all your stuff. My Beach Bag is a simple drawstring bag that you can whip up in no time at all. The extra layers at the bottom add a little personality, and the rest of the pizzazz will come from the fabrics you choose. Go bold!
Want to try a different kind of piecing? The whole family can spend time piecing Seaside Summer Jigsaw Puzzle. Stay at home and still enjoy the beach.
Whether you are beach bound, wishing you were, or remembering past trips, I hope you are enjoying your summer.
