Quick post for you tonight. I made a few last minute - VERY last minute - Halloween projects today. I am showing you some of them tonight, and then my favorite set tomorrow.
Halloween can be scary for some little ones, so I loved this template from Laurie Furnell. She's an amazing artist and I couldn't wait to use the template. As I am not a knitter, I had to make one change - and that was to leave the monster with no hair. However, they did come out cute :-)
aren't they just the cutest things :-) I'm not sure what's happening with my printer, but it seems to have a black line running through ... mmmm.... However, they are adorable. No way, I could have created something that fabulous without Laurie's template.
Then, I decided to hop on the Mummy wagon. Ever since I saw the SU project with the twill binding around a can, I have wanted to do something, but decided that twill tape was too expensive. So, I spritzed up some tissue paper using my smooch spritzes, tore up the tissue paper and wrapped the individual pieces around the Hershey bar. I punched out a couple of circles for the eyes, and here's what my dirtied up Hershey Mummy looks like.
Doesn't he look as though he's been around for a few hundred years :-)
I then decided I needed something different - and found a fabulous bat template from about.com.
So, if you are looking for a couple of last minute, easy to make projects for the kids or grand-kids, I hope you have seen something that sparks your interest.

On a personal note:
Lou and I are enjoying our time off, but it is going by so quickly. What with so much to do and so many decision to make - and re-make. Yep, re-make! Plus so many things to do around the house to winterize it.... time is going past very quickly.
I hope that my readers on the east coast have managed to survive the amazing storm that has just come through.
Warm hugs and prayers for those of you who need a lift tonight.
