Happy Halloween one and all!!!
I have a very special visitor today, Scraps the Mummy!!! This was a Mosey 'n Me chart I had bought years ago because it "spoke" to me. Their version was done on a hot pink linen, but when I finally got around to stitching mine in 2014, I did it on a bright 30 count chartreuse linen, over one. I had stumbled across the coffin at Hobby Lobby, discounted after Halloween, and it brought Scraps to mind....what a perfect resting place for an adorable mummy!!! I had to do a little re-figuring to make him fit, added about an inch to his height. I added a bat button to his head and stuck a couple "voodoo" pins in him. I made a black mattress for the bottom and adorned it with tiny orange buttons, a moon button and bat needle minder. I had the perfect fabric to back Scraps with and even made a beaded spider to keep him company. I love this little guy!!!
Now, if you can indulge me, I have some grand blessings to share. :) First, yesterday we took my parents to visit Asher and Cora at school. My Mom was the Mystery reader in Cora's fist grade class. She read the book Popcorn which was my younger daughter's favorite childhood book.
Then we had lunch with them.
Note the creature on the wall....no, not my hubby....students submitted artwork and an artist painted the chosen pieces on the walls in the cafeteria...that is Ashers!!! Here's an up close shot!
Finally, I'll end with Cora's Halloween hair do--is this cute or what??? Her Mom is very clever!!!
I hope your day is filled with lots of treats and no tricks! Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!
