This took me too long so now it's decor for next October, oops.


There are 3 sets of each of these guys, bat, pumpkin, ghost, cat, leaf.


Fun to do, patterns made up as I went along which is why none of the them are exactly the same, ha!

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

Hey, thanks guys! It's still hanging up in the dining room,. Even though we got the year's first light dusting of snow this morning we're none of us feeling very christmasy yet. The spook is still upon us!

This is so cute! I really like the little bat and cat.

It would be super easy to make those ones from pompoms and felt instead of crocheted balls. Even the pumpkins and the skulls could be done out of poms, it would only be a bit tricky to figure out the skull's grin. Maybe a small rectangle of white felt cut with black stitching on it glued on the pom. Now I will have to play with that idea for next year, lol!

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

There's nothing wrong with having Halloween decorations displayed all year round, especially when they are as fun as this. Too cute!

I'm also still making Halloween decorations, lol. Today I stitched up another ghostie, so cute! The google eyes, I love those things. I'm thinking of adding a little felt or sheet foam "O" mouth too. They are just half a ball shape extended longer then finished with picot edging. I hot glued some cotton balls inside to help them keep their shape. Very quick and easy. Perfect for a cup of coffee at our local cafe (we sneak over there without the kids on weekend mornings, I need a quick take along project to do while we sit there relaxing Cheesy ).
