Ludi requested two placemats in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap, and I was inspired to make them to represent a section of a Witch's bookshelf.  I used my embroidery machine for the book lettering "Advanced Potions" and "Herbology".  I included a sparkly crystal ball on a skull stand, a container of cobweb powder and a jar of red licorice.  Even witches like red licorice!


This witch apparently has the same taste in literature as Ludi.  She's reading "Titus Groan", one of Ludi's favorite books.  She currently has a spooky textbook open on an eyeball bookstand. 


These were tons of fun to make.  I've been toying with the idea of a witch's bookshelf quilt for a while.  This was a great starter project!

Wonderful!
I love the idea of the witch's bookshelves. You executed it masterfully. Very neat work and lots of interesting details to look at. If I had received them, I would put them on the wall, not on the table. I hope you will make the quilt and share it with us.

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.
