My husband & daughter were out of the house for a while this afternoon so I took the opportunity to lug my machine out to the dining room and was able to start some projects.

Decided to try painting the fabric before sewing.  The paint was quite diluted with coffee so it wasn't stiff, but after drying the color was more faded than I wanted.

Love how fast things dry outside in the summer!

Candy canes?  Well, kind of...

Sweet treats for good Boos and Ghouls!

Oh I had so much fun sewing today!

I jut love those kind of days when no one is home but me. I can get more done in that one day than in a week.
Looks like you are gearing up for the next holiday.
You be a good ghoul now.

Everything looks great. I love how you did your fabric before you made your candy corn. I never thought of that. Can't wait to see your pumpkins finished.

Prim Blessings,
