21  Virus Shawl in Crochet: Completed Projects by pottermouth on: October 04, 2017 08:49:51 PM
The fantabulous Mistress Jennie set up a Virus Shawl Crochet Along that was so tempting I had to play along. The pattern is an easy repeat and goes quickly. I had Lion Brand Mandala yarn in "Genie" in the stash, so I figure why not? The results were surprisingly nice.

If you are in need of a quick gift, look no further!

Done! Used one ball of Lion Brand Mandala in Genie (not Spirit as stated earlier) and size E 3.5 hook, approximately 56" from widest points.

It was a super fast project. Once you have the repeat down it goes pretty quickly. Thanks, Jennie!

Here is the Bin of Doomed Things with all six noggins:

Beginnings of a misshapen niffler, felt pumpkin, Waldorf wizard hand puppet, the unfinished head of another Waldorf doll (supposed to be one of those dolls on a stick that pop out of a cone...poor thing), looming incomplete embroidery, three creepy heads left over from a fairy doll, pom pom bunny head, paperclay pumpkin head, paperclay bunny girl, and two headless plus one complete spun cotton doll ornaments. And Princess Leia. How did she get in there??

All of these are truly Doomed. I have salvaged the best of the bunch, minus Leia of course, and will stuff the rest back in the closet. Except the small paperclay pumpkin head. He has a cute smile.  Cheesy

Started my Virus shawl with Lion Brand Mandala yarn in Spirit:

It is what I had in stash and is a pretty variegated yarn that might work out. I am using a 3.5 mm hook.

27  Pumpkin Guy and Kitty in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: September 18, 2017 07:47:24 PM
I started this guy waaaaay back, maybe a year or more ago, and for some reason pitched his wee unpainted head in my Bin of Doomed Things. (That bin is kinda full of body-less heads for some reason.) After rummaging through the bin, I rediscovered his paperclay noggin and decided to finish the poor thing, thus creating Pumpkin Guy.

His body is a wire armature that is wrapped with wool roving and then covered in a wool felt oval. I basically made a wire armature then sewed a "football" from wool felt over the armature, and stuffed it with wool roving. Then clothing was hand stitched over the body form. Guy (he's French, BTW) needed a buddy, so I needle felted CeeCee, the cartoonish kitty with a candy corn tail.

Only 6 more heads in the Bin of Doomed Things. Yay!

28  Putz'ing Around in Halloween Decor and Parties by pottermouth on: September 08, 2017 06:36:51 AM
I used a cute little house kit, the same one rackycoo used for her sweet house, and made a Halloween House for lindyv321. It is covered in glitter, has candy corn trees, and a little visitor inside.

I wanted the ghost to light up, so I built a tall enough base to house a flickering tealight. There is a hole in the floor just wide enough for the "flame" of the tealight and the ghost is glued over that.

It was worth having glitter on all the things!

29  Hip Hop Halloween ATCs in Artist Trading Cards (ATCs) by pottermouth on: September 07, 2017 08:54:12 PM
A few silly hip hop ATCs that were sent to lindyv321. I kinda giggled while making them.

There are shiny mica flakes on the bottoms of the cards and now that I look at them, the mica could be autumn leaves. Happy accident, I suppose!

Loving the additions to the gallery. The embroidered pumpkin towel is fantastic! That is some beautiful stitching. I need all of the felt ornaments to hang on my Halloween tree. Adorable!

I received from lindyv321 and can share the wonders! She made me the most wonderfully detailed Headless Horseman hoop I've ever seen. It is incredible! It has been raining here (thanks, Irma) so these pictures don't do it justice; it is quite shiny and intricate. The quote says, "Gigantic in height and muffled in a cloak, horror struck on perceiving that he was headless". I love this.

She also added an extra or two, because she's sweet like that. A hand painted Trick or Treat sign and a tombstone with a little vintage witch!

You outdid yourself, lindy, and I thank you dearly for my package!
