I woke up and realized one of my favorite quilt stores was having the start of their after Halloween fabric sale. I decided then that the lack of decorations around the house was depressing and I just HAD to make something for the table for the festivities.
Hence the "great plan..."
I headed to the fabric store, but a half yard of four fabrics and decided I was going to do a chevron table runner. Keep in mind that I have never done one of these, but was excited about the idea. So I got home, cut the rectangles, and began to sew. And no, I had no pattern and no experience, only the drive of the deadline (that night) and my excitement!
Here is what I ended up with:
|Halloween Table Topper (Unfinished, top only)|
I will post pictures of the finished project once I get over my disappointment and take it apart. I will try and finish it before I put away the other Halloween stuff. At least that way when I pull out the decorations next year I will have it finished and it will just be a distant memory!
On a MUCH happier note, my daughter was the most adorable Minnie Mouse EVER! Even if she refused to wear her ears! And she absolutely loved trick-or-treating, as long as no one around her was wearing a mask!
|With her friends. This is the closest to standing still I could get!|

Happy (Belated) Halloween Everyone!
