My Sewful Retirement

A Quilting Journey

Halloween Finally…

Happy Tuesday!

My guests have left and my small dinner party was a success! Now that I have time and a smaller house I truly enjoy decorating with quilty goodies πŸ™‚

Today I’d like to share the last of my 2018 Halloween projects.

I did all the cooking and baking so I had to have new kitchen towels and potholders – right?!!!

Going back and forth between the stove and sink I needed a rug….

My guests enjoyed spending time in my sewing room – so I made a mini quilt to hang over one of my machines…..

  5. Hi Karla! Wow, you really went all out. How very fun – every detail is just perfect. And gifts for your guests to take home. You are so sweet and talented. I just love the towels on your stove, but also the rug!! It looks so cool for you to stand on, and not that much white after all. Happy Halloween my friend! ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Thanks Roseanne, It was a lot of fun! Our friends were impressed. The rug was a QAYG string project I was really pleased with the results – this time I used Gorilla Grip drawer liner for backing! I highly recommend it – Happy Halloween my friend πŸ™‚

    Hi Karla…..I arrived here via Free Motion by the River, and found some things I really like while perusing the area. Do you have patterns or tutorials for your Halloween projects, especially that wonderful table topper? I also like the name of your blog. I will do more looking around when I have more time, because right now, I have a pot of soup boiling over. Yuckkkkk

    • Hi — I’m glad you found me! I love Connie’s site – I get lots of inspiration from her! I don’t have written tutorials but I have sketches of everything and I’d be happy to share them with you. I was an accountant and still love to use graph paper πŸ™‚

        What a generous offer Karla! I would love to take you up on it whenever you have the time. Fortunately I have a family that really appreciates the hand made gifts I make. Thank you so much!
