My fantastically spooky house arrived from our organizer, too.  I love everything about it!  Especially the grungy bell hanging from the belfry.  What a great element!  Thank you so much!

33  Witch's Bookshelf Placemats in Halloween Decor and Parties by MissingWillow on: October 14, 2015 07:04:07 AM
Ludi requested two placemats in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap, and I was inspired to make them to represent a section of a Witch's bookshelf.  I used my embroidery machine for the book lettering "Advanced Potions" and "Herbology".  I included a sparkly crystal ball on a skull stand, a container of cobweb powder and a jar of red licorice.  Even witches like red licorice!

This witch apparently has the same taste in literature as Ludi.  She's reading "Titus Groan", one of Ludi's favorite books.  She currently has a spooky textbook open on an eyeball bookstand. 

These were tons of fun to make.  I've been toying with the idea of a witch's bookshelf quilt for a while.  This was a great starter project!

34  Witchy Workroom in Halloween Decor and Parties by MissingWillow on: October 14, 2015 06:52:53 AM
I made this altoid tin for Ludi in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap.  She likes miniature things and I figure this might look good in her cabinet of curiosities.  The giant worm lurking under the work table glows in the dark.

There's a portrait of her favorite needlework artist Ernest Thesiger on the wall.

Here's the amazing puzzle piece I got from sheepBlue.  I sent it to her in the mail and she altered it and put it in her shop for me to claim.  It's amazing, I love it!  Thank you so much!

38  Super Simple Pickled Peppers in Vegetarian / Vegan by MissingWillow on: October 01, 2015 12:45:22 PM
I spent about an hour this morning pickling jalapenos from our garden.  It was so easy, I thought I'd share the process with you guys.  We use pickled jalapenos in a lot of stuff around here like chili, breakfast burritos and all sorts of Mexican dishes. 

We grew a bounty of peppers and garlic in our garden this year in raised beds.  Most of the peppers we grow are too dang hot to consider pickling but our jalapenos are outstanding and need to be preserved.  This is my second batch so far.

The ingredients are just too simple.  Peppers, vinegar, water and garlic.  I also added a habanero to each jar but that's totally optional. 

The ratio is 3 parts vinegar to one part water and I always eyeball the total amount of liquid needed for the peppers we have on hand.  I ended up with 5 and a half pints of pickled peppers for this batch and I used 4.5 cups of vinegar to 1.5 cup of water.  Before we figured out this gardening stuff, I would pickle a single jar at a time (I'm retired, I have the time) so I know this is totally scaleable. 

I sterilize the jars and lids in boiling water for 10 minutes and while that is happening, I brought the water and vinegar mixture to a boil.

After fishing the hot jars out of the water bath, I put a garlic clove, a whole habanero in each jar and filled the rest with sliced jalapenos. 

Then I poured the hot vinegar/water mixture on top until it filled the jar to about 1/3 inch from the top.  Screw the sterilized lids on top and put them back in the water bath.

They gently boil with the lid on for 10 minutes.  Take the lid off, take the pot off the heat and remove them after 5 minutes.  Store in your pantry just like you would the store bought kind.

She does it again!  That is awesome!  I love the shape of the house and the 'I Love Halloween'.  I mistakenly posted my house in our other board because I'm a dufus.  Ever have one of those days?

I received my very first chunky barn from Pottermouth and I adore it!  It appears that Trotter's Barn has taken a bad turn... What's that peeking from the hayloft?  The door opens and...

Oh Flock!  LOL!  Zombie sheep!  I just adore this and it will stay out year round with my zombie sheep collection!

The back is equally awesome, check out how she put that head in a jar.  Your skills amaze me, Pottermouth.  Thanks so much for adding this amazing barn to my neighborhood!

40  Halloween Coasters in Machine Embroidery: Completed Projects by MissingWillow on: September 30, 2015 11:34:11 AM
I made these haunted house coasters for Abbeeroad in the One Tiny Halloween Thing swap.  She mentioned that she would appreciate something practical and likes haunted houses so this is what I came up with.   

I found the design at embroidery library, it was the perfect size and stitched up pretty quick. 

The back sides were harvested from some fun fabric I had in my stash.  I just love the images!
