Happy October 1st...

Happy Witching Month ! :)  Angel Esther and I have been busy today  tweaking Witches and Ghosts and Pumpkins and we are happy to declare that  our little 'Witching' corner is all finally set up and ready to welcome the dark and spooky evenings of Witching Month  :) 

My October 'Wordplay' by Brenda Gervais is ready to hang, along with some soft fabric ghosties ...

Our Spooky Witches corner...
Angel Esther was very helpful ! ;) I suspect that the witch sat in the fabric 'Pumpkin-bucket' won't be sat there for long ...throughout the afternoon she's turned up in various places ...the staircase, the kitchen and even in the bathroom! :) She's obviously gone a-wandering with my Angel when I wasn't looking  :) I've got to love my Mondays-home-alone with my Angel Esther ...we cuddle and stitch whilst watching the odd film ...or our latest craze is Micheal Jackson Music videos on Youtube ..hehehe   We  potter and fiddle around the house and generally have a quiet day not doing much at all. I'm not sure how either of us will adjust when we eventually get our extra day on  Mondays at Day Services ..hehehe (Still no word on that from Social Services...we have funding in place,  but I think we've hit a 'staffing' issue...sigh!) We're okay for the time been, with the advancing chilly mornings, it's no hardship mooching around in our PJ's ... although we do try  to make sure we are dressed before lunchtime! :) hahaha

I love my Woolly 'BOO' cushion by Buttermilk Basin Designs :)
 

Some small Witchy Cross stitches...

This wall hanging is one of my very first applique projects, many, many moons ago...
 I believe the hanging it is possibly older than Angel Mim :) ...  I'm not sure that I can remember the name of the pattern  or designer  correctly but I think may be  a  Nancy Halvorsen design... I remember her designs and pattern were my first steps into sewing and applique back in my early stitching days :)  Being one of my first sewing projects, I can see soooo many faults with this hanging ...all the applique is just fused down no stitching whatsoever ...I think I even used glue! ...Shock-Horror!!! ;) But it is part of my sewing history and I love it :)

A couple of Pumpkin Hangings...
 ..that I really should have ironed and pressed before hanging on the wall ...hehehe

And my new Tingles-Halloween hanging...
With those teensy-weensy buttons all sewn on :) Its obviously my new favourite ..hahaha
I'm pretty pleased with how everything looks ...I suspect there will be more tweaking yet and the disappearance and reappearance of a certain little Witch before we make it to Halloween Eve....its all part of the fun :)

I have prepped a new cross stitch project to keep my fingers busy...
I have my threads and linen ready to start 'Bittersweet & Broomsticks' by Brenda Gervais ... I love stitching little Witches and Pumpkins so I'm keen to get started  :) ...in fact its calling me right now ...hahaha

Witchy Hugs

It made me smile when you talked about your early applique wall hanging. I have a Santa wall hanging that I get out every year. Each time I hang it I think I should fix something or give it some more quilting but then I stop myself. It was the best I could do at the time and it gives me sweet memories of my quilting history. I think your wall hanging looks great and adds a lot to the decorating.

My grandchildren came over to help decorate yesterday. I'm just itching to reorganize things so it looks better to my design sense. But, so far, I haven't moved a thing. Thanks for sharing Halloween at your house. (Hope that witch doesn't venture outside.)
