Not Cute Creepy

Busy week ahead. I'm over at Unicorn Bell all week, talking about writing groups. Feel free to drop on by and tell us of your experiences.

I've been kind of between projects. I'm not sure what to work on, so I went in search of some Halloween patterns. I pulled out the pumpkin pattern as these got lost in the move...


And I went to try again the jack-o-lantern version...


Which still looks creepy. And not in a good-creepy way.

I guess I have to bite the bullet and figure out how to...gulp...embroider some eyes and mouth holes. Does anyone have any embroidery experience? Any ideas? Help...

  5. Oh they are so cute! Halloween is not big here in OZ, although my Lovely and her boy do give it a good hot try every year.

    1. It seems that Halloween has only lately gotten to be big. Or perhaps I'm just noticing it.

  6. I think they're very appealing Liz, even the scary one.

  7. How cool!!! I love this. Halloween is my favorite holiday. I did a fall floral arrangement for my front porch yesterday even though it's still technically summer to most people!

    1. At least for me, it's time to start the making. Because that takes longer.
