Here are our pumpkins entitled "too many sweets" and "not big enough to go trick or treating", and my two little vampires with the prize they won with them in the village pumpkin competition. They have called him Bernie. I wanted to call him Errol, because I think he looks just like Errol Flynn, but then thats me showing my age again!

Tea Cosy Finished!

I know I said I wanted a tea themed fabric, but I couldn't find one in the right colours and then I saw this sprigged print and it just looked right. It only used 1FQ as well (plus 1FQ in a plain cotton and some wadding and muslin for the lining), with enough left over to back a couple of pinkeeps. And it keeps the tea lovely and toasty too ;)

If you want to find the design click on the link for The Sampler Girl in the side bar.

Look Carefully.............

.........and you'll see the little chap we spotted while we were out for a walk this weekend. There were eight to ten of them altogether, but this one was the least camera shy!
