spooky crafting

"Ghosts and goblins all about!
Trick or treat we scream and shout!
Such a spooky time."
-from some beginning piano book, one of my very first recital songs.

This year I managed some Halloween crafting, to make our entry way a little...spookier. (Or perhaps, just more fesitive)
Teeny, tiny crocheted bats, thanks to a pattern found on ravelry.com. Don't worry, they are very very friendly bats.
I used a charm pack for the first time. The pre-cut squares? Very very nice. It made the table cover a snap.
I'm particularly proud of the free motion quilting. I tried something a little zig-zag-ish. It felt more like Halloween.

And slowly but surely, my collection of holiday goodness comes together. The trick (or treat) seems to be not expecting to have a house full of all hand made goodness in one year. Tackle a project here and a project there, and slowly it will come together.
