Fall Crafting

I love these tea towels from Word Up, Nerd Up!
Aren't they great?

I'm thinkin' bookish quotes on pillows would be great, too!

Not reading as much lately because I've been busy crafting.  Since I'm so behind on book reviews, not reading as much helps me trim down the back list of reviews.

Here's what I've been up to:

Some old-fashioned Izannah Walker inspired dolls.

 A cage doll.  I made a Santos style cage for her and have just finished her.

Some new Halloween fabrics, a paper mache skull, a circle cut from burlap with a gathered strip of Halloween fabric.

Just finished a scrap and skeleton garland for the fireplace and am working on two Halloween dolls.  I've half a dozen more projects in mind, but don't know if I'll get to them all.

More craftiness at Bayou Quilts.

Time to get out all the previous Halloween's crafts and begin decorating.  I love this time of year, don't you?  Cooler weather, fall color, Halloween.

Although I made the bobble head and the witch on the log, I've had the "Nalloween" sign for
 several years.   I didn't notice when I bought it that there was a slight problem with the letters!

I've ordered a few books that I can use for the R.I.P. Challenge,
some on fabric art, and some mixed media books.
Looking forward to quite a few welcome deliveries.


  1. Love the quotes on the towels. You are so crafty! I wish I could make things like that, but it never looks like what I envision in my head.

  2. I love the quotes, too. I'd love to have them in my kitchen!

  3. Love those tea towels! I also love all you Halloween decorations-just great!!

  4. They have to be my favorite tea towels ever! And Agatha Christie is so perfect for fall!

  5. How I would love to have Halloween here. I love your decorations and the towels.
