Happy Halloween

Saturday I went to the local garden shop and found this delightful lady hanging about waiting for someone to take her home.  I think she looks lovely hanging in front of my grandparent's mirror over my fireplace.
 Also on display was this hybrid VW Bug/Spider looking rather creepy.
 I decided to take some pictures of some of my Autumn quilts.  This is a Mary Lou Weidman chicken quilt that was featured in a magazine several years ago.
 This table runner pattern I got on a trip to New England, it also has an apple design as an alternate.
 I took the above basic table runner and merged it with a turkey pattern from another pattern.
 I found this Holiday Baskets pattern by Cheri Saffiote several years ago and had lots of fun deciding on fabrics.  I ran out of my pumpkin fabric and substituted a polka dot one for fun.
 Driving down to California I found this pattern Ghoulish Fantasy by Pine Tree Lodge.  I made a few creative modifications to make it my own.  I call mine the Three Amigos!
 In the lower corner I stitched a spiders web and added this fun pin.
 My moon is different and I added this witch checking it out.
 Boo says the ghost.
 I added faceted eyes to my black cats.  This guy has a 3 D tail and the tops of the fence are made with prairie points.
This next quilt was made in a workshop with Jane Sassaman, so I call it October Weekend with Jane.
 My friend Ethel designed this fun group of pumpkins for a guild workshop.  I decided to have 4 different borders.  Check out the candy buttons the witches are dancing among.
 The names escapes me of this pattern's designer, but I love the sentiment.
 I think this is from Nancy Halvorsen's Art to Heart collection. 
 Saturday night the sky was looking particularly Halloweenish.
 Milady bits you all a safe and Happy Halloween!
Trick or Treat!
