Witches and Stitches!

I have started my decorating! Woot! My amazing Hubby and his Dad helped me out to make this super fun witch for the front yard. I need to get a broom for her empty hand, but other than that she is haunting my yard. She looks really neat at night with the spot light behind her, but it doesn't make for a good photo. I'll try again tonight.

I also finished another 3 D star table topper! These are so fun to make! This is another Day of the Dead inspired one. I added rick rack for a festive touch, and I just adore rick rack and think it is highly under used.3D Star Day of The Dead Table Topper

WIP Sunday: Hauntingly Fun!

Fall is upon us! I woke up this morning to the smells of fall coming in my bedroom window! I was so inspired I had to bake some cookies. My special only for fall and winter time cookies, Great Grandma Hurley's cookie jar favorites. That is what she called them, to most they are molasses cookies. Yummy!

Here they are in my favorite cookie jar!

I also got started on a new yard decoration for Halloween! I'm going a bit nuts since it is the baby's first Halloween and of course my favorite holiday. I found an awesome witch via pinterest. It is from Martha Stewart's website. I taped my printed pattern together today so I can go material shopping tomorrow! Squeee! I'm trying to talk the Hubby into running the skill saw so I don't chop off any fingers. Witchy Pattern

I also finished up one of my 3D star table toppers! This is the one I was working on in the class. It is already on my dining room table. This pattern was so fun I have 2 more in the works and one planned for a Christmas gift.

I'm Back!

New computer, new computer, new computer, yea yea yea! WOOOOO HOOOOOO!
I feel so much better now that I have access to my stuff!
The Hubby had surgery on Thursday so my crafty pursuits have been limited as I've been taking care of him and Avinell! (What a job!) I did start working on Halloween costumes for my Sis and Avinell! I can't wait to complete them! I'll give you a hint: BRAIIINNNNNSSSSS!

I haven't really managed to craft much. Things just got slow. I've made some drooly bibs. (Yes, my little girl digs batman!)

Happy Friday! Batman drooly bib!

And a piece for the annual art auction held for the art center. (This isn't a pic of the finished piece. I just realized I didn't get a finished photo. I'll take one Thursday.)A Dream Of Whimsy

I have a class tomorrow night with my favorite quilting instructor! I'm super excited to get out of the house and sew with my friends! I have my fabric all cut! It is an amazing 3 D star table topper! I'll share it as soon as it is finished now that I can use a computer for reals!

I need to catch up and figure out what I have and haven't blogged! Yikes. I've missed this!
