I had an email from my good friend Sonja http://artfrommysoul.wordpress.com/ who I admire so much her work is wonderful,so please check out her blog. Sonja pointed out a swap I had missed over at http://milliande.ning.com Halloween Inchies hosted by my sailing friend Lois in Massachusetts.
I signed up straight away as inchies always seem manageable after all they are only one inch square and this is what i made this evening.
each one is on a piece of calico which has been stiffened and stitched around the edge.I stained them and added colour with sharpies. I assembled them using buttons,net,ribbons and SIZZIX die cuts . The bats are the size I cut them,but the rats and crow are cut from shrink plastic and reduced in size.
I coloured them with sharpies.
Yesterday except for Wilson I had the house to myself ,as my husband had gone to Wales on a trip with a group of other motorcyclists. My youngest son also went and this is the head gear he wore.
Yes that is a camera on his head.
It rained on and off all day and I could not settle to do much so I just played with the sewing machine, and made these .
They are not brilliant ,but it was good to practice applique.
I was a little worried when looking after Little Miss X last week that she may have plans to become a Pole Dancer.
I have to thank Debra also from Massachusetts for my journal pages I received from her , this swap also takes place over at
The colours and textures are lovely.
I also received a wonderful Card from Lorraine http://loveofcollage.blogspot.com/ just to say she was thinking of me in my child minding role. please check out her blog she creates some great art.
