Halloween- quick and easy!

Cindy was very busy while Lori was at convention. You saw in my last post the new Halloween fabric display.  Well, she stitched out this easy table runner using this pattern and they are now in stock.  'Snappy Splendor' is the perfect pattern for any holiday or occasion and a quick stitch out if you are short on time.



The bench outside our front door is the perfect backdrop for my photo shoots.  


The 10 degree rulers are now in stock so this notion makes the cutting of the fabric pieces even easier.

Stop by the store soon so you can pick up the pattern, fabric and ruler and get it done before the stroke of midnight on October 31st!

It time to stitch for Halloween!

Halloween is my favorite holiday!  When my children were young, I enjoyed decorating the house, sewing their costumes and making pumpkin cookies with them.  Ironically the only choices for fabrics in the 80's were black or orange solid fabrics.

But all of that has changed!  New Halloween fabric arrived yesterday and I am inspired!  Check out this display including our new fabric from Henry Glass.




These cute little pumpkin faces glow in the dark.


Ghosts on Orange and Black backgrounds and the candelabra glows in the dark!



I was able to find several great project ideas on Pinterest. But Cindy did a fantastic job in creating this quick and easy table topper.

She cut 5  2.5" strips of fabric and stitched them together using a 1/4" seam.  She then used a 60 degree ruler and cut them into 6 sections alternating the position of the ruler for each cut.  The next step was to stitch them together to create the topper.



Add the batting and backing and then the binding for a quick and easy finished table topper.

Stop in and pick up a 1/4 yard of each of our Halloween fabric and create a few of your own easy table toppers!
