I didn't think that I would get to write this post today. It has been one of those days. One word. Kids.
A later posting time is perfectly fitting for today's subject matter however (in the UK at least it is getting dark). Today's subject matter being Halloween inspired. There are two reasons I've made/am posting this early - I always run out of time making holiday things unless I make them 2 months in advance/I won't at home for Halloween this year.
So here it is in all it's spooky glory - a cute little table runner for the scary season to come. When Amanda showed her own version a few weeks ago, I fell in love, purchased the pattern and making it went straight to the top of the essential to do list. (The pattern is available here).
It wasn't until I began pulling together my fabrics that I realised a slight drawback - I didn't actually have a single scrap of Halloween fabric. Eager as I was to get started, fabrics instead were chosen by resemblence to a pumpkin-esque colour scheme.
To go with my new runner I modified the pincushion pattern from Joelle Hoverson's 'Last Minute Patchwork and Quilted Gifts' to make a pumpkin version.
I think I love this pincushion slightly more than is healthy.
You know me by now...
