Halloween Finally…

Happy Tuesday!

My guests have left and my small dinner party was a success! Now that I have time and a smaller house I truly enjoy decorating with quilty goodies 🙂

Today I’d like to share the last of my 2018 Halloween projects.

I did all the cooking and baking so I had to have new kitchen towels and potholders – right?!!!

Happy Halloween

Growing up I wasn’t a big fan of Halloween – I’m not into scary things.  When my kids were small their dad had trick or treating duties.  If he wasn’t available I would take them to organized church events that had costume guidelines.. Yeah yeah I’m boring.

Eventually I got over my “Halloween Fear” and embraced it was only one day. I do love the orange/ black colors of Halloween and tend to decorate with those colors in mind.

Below are a few of the items I made for my home to celebrate Halloween 🙂

Throw  coin quilt for my couch, I used one charm pack – Midnight Masquerade.
