Wednesday, October the 21st at 6:30 p.m.
And on to other wonderful things... I have decided that October is the month to finish up my old unfinished projects. So yesterday I finished a wall hanging. I embroidered this pumpkin years ago- it was so easy! An easy explanation is this: choose a design/pattern/picture you like (I printed mine from online clip art), outline it on fabric with a pencil *lightly*, cut out fabric and under it put a thin layer of thin batting, pin and and then use embroidery thread to hand stitch! Super easy. I like the home-made look to it.
With some fall fabric I had to outline it, it turned out beeeee---utiful!

Remember how we did the small banner saying "Halloween" when we were running out of paper, and we didn't think it'd be that cute...? Well, the joke is on us, because...I have to admit, I think it's my favorite! It did turn out cute, didn't it!
Anyway, back to my yard-sale adventures: My three best finds?
A new "diapee-wipee" (Diaper & Wipes) case for $1, A black & white toile shower curtain- $2, and this mirror with frame- $1.
(I bought it for the frame, because I was going to make a peice of acorn artwork with fabric. But thank goodness I decided to clean it up before I removed the glass, because I ended up loving it and leaving it just the way it was!)
After!! (Just a little windex and wood-cleaner was all it took!)
It was looking so cute, all laid out and ready to go....

So I need some ideas for Craft Night #3.
So far this is what I've come up with:
Hairbows/Hair-Flowers, Candles (as seen below), Fall Toll-painting: Ghosts, Frankenstein, Candy Corn, Pumpkins, etc.
Banners like Jolyn made (see below)- from cardstock or fabric
Christmas Cards & Christmas Candy making
Please post & let me know what you want to do!... and on to other things. So, look what Jolyn gave me today.
How cute would it be to have banners in all themes: birthdays, holidays, sayings, etc.???
I needed a quick & easy & cheap thank-you to give all of the sisters who helped at our RS Meeting. I came up with these Fall-themed candles.
So cheap- candles were $1 each at Wal-Mart, leaves were $1 for a huge bag (also at Wal-Mart), and I had the ribbon. & sooooo easy! I just tied the ribbon, cut it and added no-fray to the tips of the ribbon, and then hot-glued the leaves. Done. For about a dollar (& change).
Along the same line as I mentioned earlier, wouldn't it be cute to come up with other themes for these candles, in other colors? Birthdays, Christmas, Halloween? That is my job this week, to make a few more. I'll post when I come up with something great.
And to update, we had our Craft Night #2 awhile back and it was a BLAST! We made fabric pumpkins and carmel apples, and they were both fun. The pumpkins all turned out soooooooo different and all so cute. Here are mine:
