I figured the easiest day to take over my wife’s blog would be today, Halloween. She is a Halloween fanatic, always making the kid’s costumes from scratch (she will post pics later) and mine, too. This is in between sewing two new commissions, three portraits (her first three) working nearly full time, and doing everything else she does for us.
In between, in the little crevices of time that populate her days, she has other creative ideas.
One of these was to make something Halloween-y for our neighbor Trudy-Jo.
She’s the one who inspired Mary to start doing her are in the first place. She has a barn that looks down on the valley between our houses, and it is gorgeous. Mary has quilted it at least a dozen times, in different seasons and sizes.
So as the rest of us are moving a mile a minute, and she is doing the Kessel run in sub-11 parsec times, she made a cute witch for our neighbor.
It turned out great, as you can see below.
I give you, the witch. Caution, picture was taken by my phone, so it’s not too clear, but you can get the effect, what a beautiful job, and made in less than a day from parts and pieces that would surprise you.
Love it, babe.
