Halloween Handwork

Just finished in the nick of time, before I leave for New York, are these adorable Halloween ornaments. You can find  this pattern at Buttermilk Basin.


Absolutely love this cat!

 
 I used hand dyed and woven wools. I love to work with wool as the feel of the fabric is so wonderful. Just choosing fabrics was half the fun!
 


 
 Thought this little guy was so fun!
 

 
 ORNAMENTS ON A STRING
 

 
I folded a piece of  burlap with chevrons on it, (it made it look like a spider web), and added sparkly tulle over in. Then tied twine onto it and hung the ornaments. I tried to find a black Christmas tree, but if I had to purchase one for 2 families it would have been too expensive, so this had to do.
(bad picture...too much sun in the morning....sorry!)
 
All this for my 6, soon to be 8 this week, grandkids! Love, love, these wonderful kids. We will be adding a grandson (about time!) and a granddaughter to the mix.
 
So try some hand work....you will be addicted!  Dodi
