getting spooky



The kids and I had great fun the other day with some Sharpies and felt. We decorated some skulls after I was inspired by Rebecca's Day of the Dead post.




Then last night I took a bit more felt and embroidered a couple of black skulls.

This was a nice surprise for them this morning!


It's a start for our Halloween decorating.

I got round to a little EPP too and am back to making more individual Rose Star blocks. This one includes some gorgeous fabric I swapped during the fugly party with the lovely Laura. I think they look very un-fugly!




Once I've finished this post I'm going to get the binding on this beauty:


I am resolved to get more time at my sewing machine. I have bee blocks to get done too but I'm bursting with things I want to make and they won't get done without some machine love!

It's pretty hard to tear myself away from my adorable family though...


see!

Guess I will have to wait until they've all gone to bed ;)

  8. Your EPP block is definitely NOT fugly. I love how those colours, which should not work, actually really work.

  9. Pry yourself away from the bigger one, or you may end up with more of the smaller one ;o)

  17. Do you decorate and celebrate Halloween in the UK? I didn't know that. Do you do trick or treating? It's really not a thing in Australia, but more and more the shops are stocking decorations etc.
