3's a Charm with these Halloween Finds


Of course I couldn't stay off the internet .. was looking into spider webs and other Halloweenish / Fall notions... let me share some of my wanderings of the past hour and save you some time...

Crazy Patch Pumpkin Pattern - Fraser Valley Quilters Guild - Lots of renditions for this, too cute
Creepy Buttons - The Button Drawer - baubles
Halloween Banners - Sparkle Jars - Do look around Gayles posts for other Halloween eye candy
Looking for vintage Hallowed Fabric? - Warm Biscuit - very stashable
Wool Felted Pumpkin - CJ Stitching and Blooms - Judys great tutorial
Beaded Spider Tutorial - Jewelry Making About - more possibilities
Embroidered Beetles Anyone ? - Stumpwork, Goldwork, Surface Embroidery - Jane Nicholas
Quikie Visual Ideas to Run With - Love to Sew - "chach"

Another Patchwork Pumpkin - The Calico Cat - Is this not adorable ? (scroll down some in link)


I think I have my fix for the week and I hope I've left enough of me to not feel bad for my absence... heres to the other side of a better week than last..

PS Just Checked into Judes What If blog... looks like "Crazy Left Overs" is feeling autumn too. I could just wrap myself up in Judes cloths and hibernate.

So glad to be catching up with you. You are in a settling-in-for-autumn-mood! I have enjoyed the photographs-as I always do-and reading the quotes you have found. So much food for thought her Jane.Thank you for sharing it.

I so enjoyed reading your blog this morning. I have been behind in my reading so read through the last severa posts, and your comments are poetic and pictures beautiful. Thank you for the glimpse of Fall in your neck of the woods.

I have a feeling that your house is very warm and inviting during the fall months. I'm coming back later to check out these links. Nice music, too, I hadn't noticed it until a few days ago. Is it new?

I love the pumpkin. When I looked at it at first (and hadn't caught up with the text), I was focused on the striped fabric and thought it was a cupcake. I'll bet using striped fabric and pastel colors in the Spring would make for some great Easter treats. Beautiful work. And thanks for the lovely photos. What a nice way to start my Sunday morning.
