Spooky business

There is something spooky happening on my blog today!  It is all about the Witchy Stitchy blog hop put on by Carol at Just Let me Quilt.  I couldn't help myself, I had to sign up the minute she put out the call for bloggers to participate!  I love decorating for fall and making fall decorations.


At first I didn't know what I would make and then I got to digging looking for other projects to finish up and came across this wool felt stitchery that just needed finishing touches.  So it was a win win for me to use this excuse to get this one done:)  


The black background is craft felt and the bright colors are wool felt which I had blanket stitched around.  The spiderwebs are hand stitched with a straight stitch.  To finish it off to the size I wanted for my wall I used 100% cotton fabrics.  I added the orange/black polka dot border along with the black with tiny gray stripes.  Then the final border in purple with the little candy corn.  I stitched close to the letters and stippled the black background which made the letters poof out just right.


I had several cute Halloween buttons that I added to make it even more fun. And finally for the binding I used the black with gray stripe again.  I might wish I had bought more of it!  The pattern is by Granny's Legacy Patterns, but beware she has lots of cute ones!


Please check out my fellow blog participants and their projects on their day listed below because we have some really great ideas to help you decorate for the fall.

  18. Hi Vicki! I just adore all of the spidery accents. The spiderweb on the "S" is fun as is the spider itself falling down from the "Y". The pumpkin looks a bit scared at the situation. Love it! ~smile~ Roseanne
