Things that go bump in the night....

Feeling creepy?
These are my new bats and skulls....a brand new pattern
Things that go bump in the night.
It is now in my Etsy shop, my patternmart, and my website. 
These prim bats and skulls make a spooky feel to your Halloween decor. They are simple, fast, and take little supplies. Put them in a bowl, hang them around, attach to a wreath, or tuck them on a shelf! 
Skull measures: 5" x 5 1/2"
Bat measures: 11 1/4" long x 3 1/2"
I love the texture on the bats 
Spooky, but I love him! 
They look so nice hanging around.
I am working on.....7 more halloween patterns....I know...so nutty!
Next will be something ....witchy!

They are easy to purchase...an email comes instantly after you buy it and you just click on the download link.

These make great gifts and are perfect for your home decor.
I often just frame them in a document frame or an 8 x 10 from the dollar store....super easy quick gift.
It is really nice when the person you are giving to has everything and you don't know what to get them.
I print on either white cardstock, presentation paper, matte photo paper and glossy works great too.
These are not meant for resale however.
Just letting you know.
Another thing is that they are a pdf file (adobe reader opens it- free program) and they are not available in jpg.
They are meant to be signs.
They are great for holiday celebrations and parties.

These are also great to pack away in totes......I have lots of holiday totes...and these take almost zero room in a tote.

Pass the SUGAR freebie

This is the sugar for the tea set...the 6th in a series of tea related designs.
Next week is the last one....the glorious teapot herself!
Click on the image to make it larger and save.
I have been doing alot of stitching because it is so darned hot....so I stay inside and stitch...catch up on movies and shows.  I love the movie "Blue Jasmine".
--------------
Some quilts I have made use a lot of stitching....like the 12 month raggedy Ann on below.
 
This one was so fun....it is probably on of the top designs I have ever done.
My favorite is the October witch one.
-------------------
Below is my Halloween quilt....always hard to photograph because of the deep contrast between muslin and dark Halloween fabrics.  
Every design is done in Orange embroidery floss.....so easy that way.
It reminds me of redwork....but using orange...very pretty.
 
This is the crow on pumpkin...one of the embroideries in the Halloween quilt.
-----------------------------
Another favorite is the 12 month kitty cat quilt.

I made the cats fun and whimsical....I love the Christmas one best.
All these and more are here in my etsy shop.

Smelling fall?

Yesterday my daughter and I were in the Yankee candle shop smelling all the delightful scents.
We smelled some fall candles and they were soooo yummy. 
Pumpkin spice...harvest...apple cider....and more!
It totally made me want fall.....especially since these days of reaching 100 degrees are getting really old!
These witchy collage sheet ornaments are an oldy but goody design of mine.

I love taking my old pics and making them witchy.
I made a few that are candy corn ornaments.

These are pumpkin ornaments with wire stems...so easy.

All these tags come with it too!

See...its two sheets....instant download...you print .....cut out and directions come with it.
-------------------------
The banana bread candle was to die for!
There was a chocolate layer cake candle that was the best chocolate scent I have ever smelled in a candle.
But the bacon candle made us sick...so gross....and I love bacon.
I am not sure who would like it....but some people must or they wouldn't make it.
 
 
 
Come to The party bunch, the pin me linky party, Thrifty thursday....lots of fun ideas and projects!

A little more of my studio

Hi!
I took so many pics of my studio....and I felt my last post was pretty darned long....so I thought I would show some more photos of my studio.
Above is a huge hoop...for quilting.  I put retro fabric in it and made flash cards with my name and glued it on.
Makes a great booth sign...for quilt and craft shows.

Here is a mix of ribbons, paper, and artwork.  Seems like I am always needing a little string or ribbon for something....so I dig in here. 
I keep my not so cute pastes, mediums, and all in this wooden yellow box....then I can pick it all up when I need to for more desk space.

I like to fill muffin tins and loaf pans with punched out papers and bits of ephemera.

My old army file...sold wood and as heavy as a coffin (full). 
I like to keep special old magazines, paper patterns, plastic bags for selling, and business files in it.
On the left side is a table I use for my cricut.

I have had this print since I was little...the mouse card is a birthday card my mom gave me...a few years before she died....it is a treasure.

Glue gun.....oh how I love thee!
I stick my glue sticks in a gravy boat.
I always use this non stick mat under it...cleans up really easily.

I made this big mannequin bust many years ago.  She reins over my cutting table.

My Christmas ornaments fit nicely on this wire tree...great for quilt show displays.
They are going to be in a wonderful magazine....in the fall...details later.

I love this map banner....and I also love my black velvet head from a  thrift store(it was scruffy and just needed a black paint touch up job).
Sometimes I am not sure why I keep so much stuff! 
I have a thing for chenille stems/pipe cleaners.....I just love them and the endless possibilities.
I also keep a box of UFO's .....Un Finished Objects. 
 
I like collecting old sewing books....love the diagrams and how things have changed soooo much.

Here is a tall small drawer set....each drawer is just the right size for treasures...like pearl beads, charms, black eye beads.....etc..

This tall shelf holds my cool tag from Lynn Whipple...called a big idea....I won it!
It also has my big eyed Marie Antoinette painting.
To the top left is my pink American flag...just for fun! 
I got these little bundles by the embroidery floss at the store....I can't wait to use them...but for now they are busy being cute in this bowl!
 
See my post before this to see more of my studio.
