|Part of the pumpkin patch.|
|Hiding in the corn stalks.|
|Two down, four more to go.|
|The wagon is getting more and more full.|
|My little pumpkin girl.|
|Taking a little rest.|
Now I have a quick and easy project. I call them Spooky Spoolies. I have a whole collection of wooden thread spools and I'm finally ready to let go of a few of them. They are pretty hard to come by nowadays, so I hang on to them pretty tightly. The pictures will be pretty self-explanatory.
|My little spoolie family.|
|Sorry its blurry. The mummy is wrapped with plumber's|
tape, or pipe tape, or whatever YOU call it.
|A stick for the stem, wrapped in jute. Curly raffia and some leaves finish it off.|
|A green pom-pom for her nose.|
The mummy and the witch have yarn hair. Wrap the yarn around two fingers about 15 or 20 times and tie it really tight. Cut the loops and trim to the length you like. Put some hot glue on the edges of the hole and stuff the middle of the yarn hair down inside. All the black lines are made with black fabric paint. Googly eyes for the mummy and you're done! The kids will love to make or receive these cute little spoolies, so make a dozen or two!
That's it for tonight. I'm so tired, I can't hold my eyes open any longer. Oh, yeah...my husband got home today, so maybe I'll sleep a little better. After all, my future awaits me. C.S.
