Halloween hooking

I've been hooking up a storm. I love Halloween but I just gave away most of our decorations to my great nieces and nephew. We don't have any trick-or-treaters anymore. Even said, I made more stuff this year!!

This witch is 11" tall including the bedspring.

Then I made this pumpkin guy. He's about 10" tall.

I also tried something different. I used a transfer for the middle of this, then hooked around it. I used the t-shirt transfer paper you can buy at the big hobby stores. Then fused it to the linen with "wonder under". I think I'll make some loops on top for hanging. It's pretty small, 9" by 11". I think I'll explore this altered hooking more.

I'm going to work on one more fall project before moving on to Christmas stuff. It's a purse that says Autumn. The pattern is from the Primitive Gathering. I wasn't going to do any more orange stuff, but I dyed wool yesterday and orange was one of the colors I wanted to try from my new dye book. It turned out beautifully. I show you pictures tomorrow.

And in closing, here are some pics of our house decorated for the fall season.

The window box on the front porch. Usually I hate fake flowers, but I did it anyway for outdoors.

These are hand dyed fabric including a chenille bedspread. I used real pumpkin stems on two of them.

I painted this last year on a little piece of plywood.

It's officially fall tomorrow!
