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!

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

did you wear the hat?

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.
