Crochet Halloween Blanket - Free Pattern



If you love to crochet and love Halloween you too need a Halloween lap blanket. I used this wonderful free pattern that I found on trusty Pinterest. It is a pattern that  is easy enough for a beginner crochet queen and you can work the stripes in any way you choose. Bonita gives it two thumbs up.


Original Pattern Source


48" x 56"

I made my blanket a bit larger than the pattern size, but it is easy to make any size you like with the instructions on the pattern. I used Bernat Premium yarn, in black, dark and medium grey, and cream, available at Walmart. I used Red Heart Super Saver in carrot, also from Walmart. If I remember correctly I used two skeins each of black and dark grey and one each of the others. I used the light grey for a simple picot edging.

Happy Halloween Crochet!

Free Pumpkin Label Update



Happy almost Halloween season!

 I have finally set up an Etsy store to sell my Halloween Apothecary labels - both my old favourites and all new witch potion jar labels. This called for an update to my free Fairy Pumpkin label.

The original version was posted in 2011 and is still available here. It is perfect for those little putka pods that are available at craft stores. This is a great craft for kid's Halloween parties.

Click on the label to get the highest resolution and save to your computer. It is free for personal use only.

Check back later this month as I will be offering my Witches Spell Book pages free as well.

The link to my store is on the upper right.

Thank you for stopping by!

Garden Shed Happy


It's been about a year since we finished my garden shed and it makes me even happier than I imagined. Sitting on the patio and looking at it or sitting on it's porch with the bees and birds busy around me.



We added a small flower bed this spring and divided plants from other beds to fill it.
I am anxious to get busy on the interior...

2016 Halloween Farmhouse Kitchen


Happy Halloween from my kitchen to yours. Our little kitchen nook is one of my most loved spots in the house to decorate. It's amazing how a new wall colour can change your Halloween look. I just left out the orange...



Table for three? Note the supervisor peeking in from around the china cabinet.
