Happy Halloween!

Just wanted to pop in to wish everyone a Happy Halloween :- )

This is a wonderful ceramic tray I treated myself to this year. It was made by Sharon Bloom.

And here's a little trick I pulled off a couple of years ago:

Some detail shots in case the picture above doesn't get bigger when you click on it...

The skull and worm were a preprinted patch. I sequined the worm and beaded his hat. I beaded over the scroll print too...

I used tulle over the ghost images to give them a more ethereal appearance... added some tombstone charms, more sequins, star and spider beads...

It was a fun little quilt to make. I hope your Halloween is just as much fun for you!


  1. that's a great tray - glad you splurged on yourself! fun quilt. and a belated boo from me.

  2. Hi sue, you know I just love that quilt!! And the tray is great too. I think I remember looking at it last year, or at least one similar to it. Hope you are well. Hugs, Finn

  3. The picture got bigger. Maybe that's the trick - add some close-ups and the picture will work like it's supposed to. Your hat is really neat. I have a small head too and you just can't get hats to fit. It's very different. Would like to see it when you are done decorating it.
