Craftylittlemonkey sent me some old Famous Monsters magazines, including the June 1970 OLD DARK HOUSE issue featuring this pic of Ernest!   Cheesy

I was so thrilled to receive these!  Cover painting by the recently deceased, great Basil Gogos!

Craftylittlemonkey stepped in as a lovely angel when it looked like I wasn't going to receive a doll.  And wow!  Shocked

The itself is the most gorgeous richly complex cat creation.  So many materials and textures!

And tons of extras!  A tiny crocheted skull fridge magnet; a cute witch (or hunchback?) with pumpkin; and box of Tesla "Experimints"

Also, this spooky crocheted spiderweb which I need to find a special place to display:

But wait, there's more!  Two useful - and spooky - zippered bags:

Plus, super special extra vintage spooky magazines featuring one I have long coveted, the June 1970 "Old Dark House" issue with cover by the late great Basil Gogos:

Look who's inside - my favorite creepy guy!

Thank you so much, craftylittlemonkey!  I feel totally spoiled!  Cheesy

Received this rather hilarious skull doll from audio, as well as a spooky pendant:

Thank you, audio, I appreciate that you made these in spite of tough times.   Kiss

Also this spooky coffin scene:

Thank you, Nodsu!   Kiss

I did not know there were so many pumpkin products available until I went to the store to look for them - hard to choose which ones to get!  Cheesy The most unusual was sold out:

I have not heard from my partner in awhile, so here are the dolls I sent.  Themes I chose from her list were:  Skulls, cats, Goth

It was hard to part with the little guy:

Here's another fabric collage experiment.  I can't seem to refrain from almost obscuring the "source material" with stitches. 

5 inches in diameter

I'm struggling with a small art journal.  Here are the covers (bee and butterfly) and the few pages I have completed.  Some are paper and embroidery and some just paper.  I haven't decided if I will decorate the backs of the pages.  Maybe I will journal on them!

Thank you!  This is stitched from three different fabrics - the base fabric of leaves, a flower motif, and the bee motif.

Sorry for the blur:

Yes, the book will be round.   Smiley
