Enjoy all those ghosts and goblins who drop by tonight.  I remember as a kid there was a neighbor woman who used to make pop corn balls; my brother and I used to love them more than the purchased candy people gave out.

Here is the rug I recently designed which is called Mache' Jack-O-Lanterns and guess it will be replaced with something else tomorrow.
This is the Jack I hooked last year and was a free pattern insert in a 1998 Oct/Nov issue of Rug Hooking Magazine.  The design was by Barb Carroll of Woolley Fox.
As I was a lucky winner of a free kit from Maria Barton (Star Rug Company), I also hooked this cute Duluth Pumpkin.  Love those buttons Maria sent with the kit as eyes.
This small piece was designed and hooked by Tonya Robey (Mad Hen) and I've several of her designs that I've purchased on ebay in the past.
Another item made by Tonya and it hangs in my sewing room 24-7.

When I did shows the witch below was one that was quite popular.  I may still have one in my containers from the last of my shows.  I should probably list my dolls on ebay.  Heck, it is almost Christmas perhaps I need to take pictures of some of my things and post the prices on my blog.

Have a great weekend everyone.


  1. I like your jack-o-lanterns rug. I made a witch quilt for my great grand-daughter. My grand-daughter said it was well received because it wasn't a scary looking witch. Your jack-o-lanterns fit the same idea. I didn't realize that some kids don't like the scary part of Halloween.

  2. You have some really cute items.

  3. You have lots of beautiful Halloween rugs and I especially love that cute witch.
    Happy Halloween.

  4. Great rugs.
    Love your witch.
    Happy Halloween.
    Hugs :)

  5. We used to have a neighbor lady who gave out homemade fudge. She was the favorite house on the block. Love your seasonal displays

  6. Lots of fun pieces for Halloween.
    We had a guy who scooped out pumpkin, into our bags and there were dog biscuits in it, as well, lol.


  7. Love them all! Thanks for sharing! Maria
