I am in the cute-not-scary camp when it comes to Halloween.  When I saw this pattern by Badbird/Andrea Zuill I couldn't wait to stitch it up.  I usually post in Needlework, but I thought I'd share the love with the Halloween peeps this time!  

Bats are one of my favorite motifs for the season, I really dug this little geeky looking guy.  I used colors that go with my vintage style Halloween decorations and framed him in something kind of dark and ornate.





Happy Halloween!
Thanks for looking.

Thank you for all of the kind comments!  Batty and I are doing our best to boost the bat fan base, they don't deserve their bad rap.  Wink

This is absolutely amazing. If I had a house, I think it would be covered in Halloween decor such as this.
