Oh, cool.  And on the back, you could mark the kids' height and age, and have something to take with you to different houses instead of marking up one doorway and then having to move away and leave those little milestones!

I'm only guessing at the appropriate-ness of this, but a Blessed Samhain to you.   
I love the idea, I would consider making an oval wreath with a cross in the middle?
Cool idea and can be modified for many religions to celebrate the autumn gorgeousness of their Creator's creation.

This is great!  I read an article somewhere about a soldier in Iraq? who really missed home, and so his wife sent him soil and seeds and planted a small plot of grass outside his tent and the whole group helps keep it watered, a piece of home in the desert...let me see if I can find it!  ... Found it!  lhttp://www.martinworks.com/hero/plotofgrass.html
The smell of cut grass.... can't beat it!

Super cute!  Would be a great night light if you have houseguests, or just like having some dim lights on in your house at night!

Something else - go into the "notions" part of a craft store and get a product called "fray stop".  after you finish a project, pull all the knots really tight and then carefully douse the knots in fray stop.  it's clear, it goes on the back, so I say soak them.  Let it dry, then cover with fuse-able web or stabilizer (esp good for wearable stuff, or heavy use like towels) and wash. 

Fray stop is the bomb!  And it's cheap!  But keep a separate needle nearby, the tip clogs up easily.
