A couple of small finishes

I've been doing a lot of hand stitching over the last few weeks, whilst watching the Commonwealth Games, so I've not got a lot to show. But I did finish this little Hallowe'en hanging. We don't really 'do' Hallowe'en, but I thought it was quite cute. It was a free pattern from The Painted Quilt. But then Number Two Son came to visit last weekend and told me that he was having a Hallowe'en party, so it went home with him.

This morning I made myself a pencil case. The pattern came from a special bags issue of the Popular Patchwork magazine, and I love the way that it's turned out.

That is such a gorgeous pencil case, Amanda. The colors and pattern are just striking! The kids will love seeing your Halloween wall hanging! I say it again, "You are truly a talented wonder!"

Very cute projects you have finished. I don't usually do Halloween either, but have an urge to make something this year. Must be the fact that I can actually get to the fabric this year.

I love your wallhanging. I'm anxious to get started on my lazy pumpkins. This year I'm in the Halloween spirit.

PS I was just rereading and relooking and can't believe that you made that beautiful pencil case in only one morning. You must have been nose to the grindstone.
