What I Did On Halloween

This was the Halloween without a pumpkin. Since the weather forecast was for rain all day, I figured carving a jack-o-lantern would be a waste of a good vegetable. Instead, I put out a staff from a weird costume one of the kids wore long ago.

Creepy - and the kids loved it

This little paper tree resurfaced, so I decorated it.

And a jack-o-lantern in a paper tree

During the day I almost finished a Halloween-ish quilt, but didn’t quite get to the sleeve.

Crows and bats and moons, oh my

This quilt may be displayed next year, if I can remember the very safe place I’m certain to store it once I attach the sleeve.

Last, and for the first time ever, I decided on a project I could easily put down when the trick-or-treaters came – which they did, because the rain came later than expected.

It almost glows in the dark

All in all, it was a great Halloween.

Luck and wisdom!

    Love the “modern” Halloween quilt. Quite the mode these days in shows. BTW I am plagued by safe places as well.

    Lani, you are so creative and resourceful. And I thought I was being creative hanging out fake cob webs! But I have to know, did you eat too much candy like I did????

    • Lani Longshore Says:

      Yes and no. I eat more sugar than is good for me, but if I know I can have more candy whenever I want it I can stop at two pieces. I put some of the leftover candy in the cookie jar, then hid the rest for Christmas. Given that I’m so good at finding really safe places to store things, the stash may stay hidden until Easter! Lani Longshore https://lanilongshore.wordpress.com Death By Chenille (www.smashwords.com)When Chenille Is Not Enough (www.smashwords.com, Amazon.com, BarnesandNoble.com)Lani Longshore’s Blog (www.lanilongshore.wordpress.com) Broken Dishes Repertory Theatre (www.brokendishesrepertorytheatre.com) From: “Lani Longshore's Blog” To: longshore1769@yahoo.com Sent: Wednesday, November 5, 2014 10:24 AM Subject: [Lani Longshore’s Blog] Comment: “What I Did On Halloween” #yiv1086328599 a:hover {color:red;}#yiv1086328599 a {text-decoration:none;color:#0088cc;}#yiv1086328599 a.yiv1086328599primaryactionlink:link, #yiv1086328599 a.yiv1086328599primaryactionlink:visited {background-color:#2585B2;color:#fff;}#yiv1086328599 a.yiv1086328599primaryactionlink:hover, #yiv1086328599 a.yiv1086328599primaryactionlink:active {background-color:#11729E;color:#fff;}#yiv1086328599 WordPress.com | | |
