Halloween Sneaky Peek

Good evening sweet friends.
I hope everyone had a great weekend!
I had the grands over.
We made Funfetti cookies
(sugar cookies with colored sprinkles)
Then made them into an ice cream sandwich cookie.
They were yummy I must admit.

We had a wonderful time...
ate out breakfast lunch and dinner one day.
They thought it was so fun!
Then I made breakfast lunch and dinner the other night for them.

We snuggled together on the couch and watched the Ghostbuster movies and Despicable Me.
They got to play with their old friends here that they miss.
For those that did not daughter and grands lived with us for almost
2 years after her divorce.  

I have been working on Halloween when I can.
This is the finished pillow.
The pumpkin is made from wool.
The stem is some striped flannel I had,
and the cat is black fabric with a woolie nose.
I hand stitched all of this from a vintage feedsack bag
I cut up that had many holes in it.

Filled these piillows with scraps of fabric.
I love the lumpy feel it very prim.

The back is a brown calico print.
A bit darker than this pic shows.
I have 5 completed and 5 more to go.
Bob and I will be doing the
Harvest At The Mill show this September in Holly, Michigan.
Looking forward to seeing some sweet friends again!

Sweet Dream Blessings To All!
