With an eye post sticking out of the shoulder (that's to attach it to the body...when there is a body). I tried to weasel my way out of making my sister a ami for her sis in law's new baby. But, what did my sister go and do...Tell her that her beloved sister who this sis in law has actually met, was making her an extra special something...right then. Begin to crochet. I cannot let this woman down. I mean, I have met her. I have babysat her actual young and now she has expectations of me....I will make her latest addition a sweet something.
I may have tried to convince my sister to let me just give her one of my darling daughters' pigs...you know, the ones that don't have appendages...she wasn't going for it. Fine!
In case you weren't aware...Halloween is coming. I love Halloween. I love October, I love the spooky decor, I love making costumes and dressing my darlings up, I love decorating my house...not to the extreme, but just to the level of fun!
Be warned though...be careful in hanging these. So, apparently I must have used industrial strength tape last year, because this year I dropped 4 hands I think.
I guess that pretty much covers how I am decorating this year for Halloween. This weekend I'll add some pumpkins, but I didn't want to get them while they weather was still really warm.
So, having made this blog post, I've really discovered that my Halloween style is definitely homemade. I obviously don't go for pre-manufactured items. I either want to make them or I want my kids to make them. I know having hand-drawn and colored pictures on your windows may not be the classiest, but it's sure the most fun!
