Happy Halloween!

 I just realized that i forgot to hit the post button on my Halloween post so it is a day late...just like most things in my life right now!!

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.  Things have changed quite a bit in recent years due to my kiddos being all grown up and me moving away.  I still decorate the house (even though nobody but the hubby and me sees it) and we carve pumpkins but I sure miss sewing costumes and planning parties. The hubby had to work tonight and so far we haven't gotten any trick or treaters again this year so it looks like I will just end up tatting and watching Disney Halloween movies.
The good news is I found a pattern to use for the holiday motifs for the family, the not so good news is I was behind in sending them out again so most of them probably didn't make it in time. I didnt love the pattern when I first saw it but in the end I think they finished ornaments turned out ok.

 I ended up making 10 of these little ghosties and I am going to call them number 23 in the motif challenge. I found the pattern by Mark Myers on his web site.  He has tons of really fun patterns and I am very thankful that he is willing to share. I wish I could tell you where I found the beaded bat n' pumpkin pattern but I made the original one years ago so I have since forgotten where I found it. I first made the pattern all in white but I didn't think the face showed up good enough so I did the rest in 2 colors.

             I hope everyone has a very happy Halloween!
