The (Ghastlie) Halloween Post

Welcome everyone from the Ghastlie blog hop thanks for dropping in. This was a very busy Halloween but I did catch the Ghastlie flu and had to make something with my fabric. I wanted to make a runner for our table.
I started with this
and ended with this.
I love my Ghastlie crew and it might even turn into a wall hanging next year.
I FMQ a spider web design.

I love the dagmar plaid with the Ghastlies
If you love the Ghastlies there is plenty more to see here at Madame Samm's! 


  We had a very busy Halloween weekend with 5 parties in three days needless to say I was pretty tired by Monday but we had fun Trick or Treating. The kids were a Vampire and Scary Guy this year.

 
 She doesn't make a very scary Vampire but she is a cute one. I am trying to figure out how to convince her to be Prudence (at left) for Halloween next year but she said "Then I have to carry a hammer around all night!" She does have a point but wouldn't it be Ghastlie!!





 My husband and I were Lisa Loopner and Todd from old Saturday Night Live days for our Saturday Night Live themed party.

My husband does a great Bill Murray and I perfected saying Todd in a very nasally voice all night long. 






I hope you all had a Happy
Halloween!

How nice of M Samm to let us visit you. I just love your Ghastlie wallhanging - now I love Prudence and would think that a perfect costume - or Sebastian really is Purr-fect! Thank you for sharing with us.

WOW - I would love to be able to FMQ like that. Love your quilt - maybe you could make a fabric hammer bag for your daughter to carry - then she could store her candy in it and look like Prudence.

I am so happy to see all of your wonderful projects! Madame Samm has been the BEST! What fun we have all had in this Ghastlie journey!

You could always make a fabric and stuffed hammer and maybe put a strap on it so she can wear it around her wrist. That way she can still have her hands free and it gets the Prudence costume across! Thank you for sharing, looks like you had a great time.

Great tablerunner! The dagmar plaid looks perfect with the Ghastlies...as does your FMQ spider webs. Delightful!
