ha ha That place was amazing!  I am sorry they closed down after 40 years in business!  I wish I had taken pictures of their buttons...it took up two walls!

Anyway, here are two little fabric bins I made for a friend. While downsizing, she came across this cool Wile E. Coyote fabric that she purchased for a project that her two sons had to do for school, nearly 30 years ago!  She gave it to me thinking I could use it for something.. It was dirty and stained, but a good washing fixed that.  I had enough to make her two, either to keep or to give back to her sons...they are lined in patriotic fabric because her house is decorated in Americana style...

Close up of Wile E.!

I received my pumpkin goodness from BigBangMomma this weekend!

Remember that fabulous fabric that we all "oohed" and "aaahed" about?  Well, she made me the most awesome wall quilt with some it!  Plus, all of the other fabrics were just as gorgeous!

Look at the applique detail!  And...hello, glitter!  Grin

She sent me a cute owl to help with my decorating...and yes, it is a pumpkin owl!

A few extras completed my package:  a recipe for Sweet Pumpkin Dip (going to try it this weekend with nilla wafers!), a fat quarter of the gorgeous fabric, a mini set of pumpkin lights (already in use--ha ha ), and a handmade card with envelope!

Thank you for setting the mood for fall and for Pumpkin goodness!

I dropped the rest of the wee monsters today!

First to a hip little place called Depot Town. It used to be a train station years ago - the station still stands, and there is also a train car left there in remembrance. I dropped the first little guy there.

Then a little ways down the road there is a community garden that has all sorts of handmade yard art that seemed very fitting. Little Halloween monster went off there! (Also I tucked a wee piece of candy in his backpack since there was room and it seemed appropriate  Cheesy l2e gave me her full blessing for this)

And then when I got back home I went for a little walk in my neighborhood. There are tons of kids around so I thought it might be fun to put one where they might find it. The parachuter was ready to go   Grin l2e and I reminisced about the little plastic parachuter toys we knew as kids and how much fun it was to throw those around haha.

And lastly, I made one more faux taxidermy so that I could abandon one myself and left it at a bench at Depot Town  Smiley

I'm sad all the wee monsters are gone now. But I know they'll find happy homes and hopefully we'll hear back from their finders soon!

I thought it would be fun to try a big perler project.  I chose Meridia, Daedric Prince of Life.  I attempted to fuse the not-yet-finished design so I could remove the boards and use them for the remainder of the project.  Sadly, even though I was working on a flat surface, the boards were uneven and fusing didn't really work.  This is what I had before the mishap:

I lost most of her face and the whole right side.  Yeah.  As discouraged as I am, I'm seeing this darn thing through!  I'm going to try the "tape method" which seems like it could also end in disaster because I'm a huge klutz.  Also I'm still having doubts about the mouth.  Not sure which one looks better.

Crafty-becky sent me an extra package that I received last weekend.  I have been so busy with work, the hurricane and other life duties that I just found time to make this post.

I love the two patches that she sent.  First up is a working spinner!  I have a loave and collection of old board games and this little patch is perfect!  On my first spin, I landed on Go Camping!  She was so clever in making this patch as all of the choices are winners!  Just look at her amazing tiny stitching.  My eyes would have never allowed me to do this!

she also sent me this cute patch and the verse is hand stitched....this blows my mind....she also got some inktense pencils.  There is also some awesome detail stitching within each anemone.

I was super spoiled she also sent me this cute twinchie patch.....her 1st and I feel so honored.  Frogs have a special meaning to me so it will be loved forever.
And not only did she spoil me with crafts but she also sent me some supplies!

Thanks for being such an awesome partner and sending all the extras!

I stitched this up for ilovesnails in the Vintage Halloween Swap.  I found the vintage-y pumpkin image on Pinterest.

All folded up and ready to be shipped out.  I didn't think to photograph the whole tea towel flat for size reference, but the design is about 4 1/4" x 4 1/2".

A close-up of the stitching.  I kept things simple and used backstitch for the bulk of the design, but busted out a little satin stitch for the eyes and mouth.

I love how this came out, and kinda want to stitch up a second one for myself!

Thanks for looking!  Smiley

Is making sure no one has to suffer from dull sensible life.
Unscrew the jar and let his blonde locks fly in the breeze and his mischief shake up your predictable days and sensible ways.
... or keep the lid tightly screwed on, when you've got too much going on and you just need a break.

Obviously the first toad I ever made!
Cause I'm a sissy like that (also applies to tarantulas).

Really enjoyd making this guy, despite allll the toes Cheesy. My fav. part to make was the warts.
I'm lad my partner liked him!

(And the pumpkin mask is made, so he would fit the Vintage Halloween theme better Smiley - but removable, cause I like accessories optional )
