Halloween, what's NOT to like

This is my oldest Halloween related UFO.

It dates to sometime in 2001. The two colors of the trick-or-treat fabrics were the only two real Halloween fabrics I could find.

The orange cats and bats fabric was taken from my cat fabric stash, the blue allover pumpkins are from a chain store, plump orange pumpkins are blanket stitch applique. And the pattern was (I think) from American BH&G.

Look what I found in the $2 store!! They had this pumpkin head guy, a witch and (I think) a Frankenstein-type monster. Will go back later this week, and maybe get the others.

Have to take what I can get, Australia isn't too much into Halloween, but I LOVE it, then again, I like Thanksgiving and 4th July too (don't ask about the few US patriotic fabrics I have squirreled away, LOL)


Having fun in the $2 with purse change.
Old quilting pieces that are still loved
Finishing something
having kids who roll their eyes, that mom is 'doing' Hallowen

hey, that's all great. you've got some halloween, woohoo. I bet not all your kids roll their eyes about halloween - you've got one who loves it too, right?

They may roll their eyes but they'll still take the candy right?! I showed a "patriotic" quilt the other day and was reminded that the U.S. isn't the only country to have red, white and blue as their colors. Woops!

what a great top! You must finish it or send it out to finish, it's very nice!

I agree with Quilting Pirate. The top is too cute to be a UFO. It really needs finishing. With Halloween things everywhere here since late summer, it's difficult to imagine a place without the decor. Another thing I learned from blogging. :-)
