Let's Go To The "Halloween Haunts" Hop!!




 Welcome to the HOP!!  A huge thank you to our host Marian of
Seams to be Sew for all the hard work that goes into organizing a hop AND a give a way.  Please visit Seams to be Sew to enter a giveaway sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop. For the life of me I couldn't figure out how to add the Rafflecopter to my blog.






Meet the clay Witch Sisters.  A fun class at a local craft shop taught my daughter and I how to create them. Classes with a small group of crafters is always so much fun and inspiration grows just from the chatter around the table.











Keep an eye out for little goblins like these when they come knocking at your door.  Better give them a treat before they offer up a trick!!














These mouse witches are meeting up with the Sisters.  I heard them say they are looking for the ingredients to concoct a potion.













Oh No!! They found the frog that serenades us each night.  He stays on the side of my house and hangs out on my window sill.










But this hop is about sewing and stitching.
I jumped at the change to join the blog because I knew I'd be stitching up some haunting blocks in Crazy Quilt.

A witch flies across a starry sky. A bat flies through the darkened sky.  A creature peaks out from his perch on a tree limb. Pumpkins in a patch waiting to be picked.  Skeleton hands scratching to unearth the bones below.  A cemetery where people are just dying to get in.







And don't forget the black cat, peaking from his hiding place behind the fence.  Starry skies and bats swoop in.  Spiders left their web, or are they hiding waiting for their next victim. Owls in trees, warning signs can be seen and bon fires burn....waiting for the fun to begin.












And what Halloween would be complete without the Walking Dead!!

I hope you enjoyed your visit here.  Leave a spooky comment please, and come back soon! You never know what you will find.

Don't forget to go enter the giveaway.  And go see what everyone else wants you to see.
It's SEW HAUNTING!!

Carol all your creations are so cute and appropriate to the season! Your clay creations are cutely ugly and very cool. The crazy blocks are really wonderful, you are so talented and busy! I didn't know what the Walking Dead creations are but see by other comments I guess they are pillowcases. Not sure I'd want to sleep with my head on those! What a fun post. Happy Halloween to you!!

Renee said...

Your clay creations are all fabulous! How fun! I absolutely LOVE your Halloween CQ blocks. Entirely too cute. We know a couple of Walking Dead fans that would just love your pillowcases, so seeing them made me smile. Wonderful treats to see. :)
