Sunday Stash #86

Today Sunday Stash is being hosted by Michelle of Squeak Crafts. So head on over there to link up.

Next week Sunday Stash will be hosted by Rachael of The FLoral Suitcase.

Last week's most visited stash link was the Don't Judge Me post by Molli Sparkles.

Slightly Halloween-ish

I do love Halloween decorations and craft. Halloween is not really celebrated here in Australia. As an event, it  is more suited to the colours of Autumn in the Northern Hemisphere though. The orange, red, yellow and green of the Fall make it perfect for dressing up the front door or porch - or even the hen house!

I have so enjoyed the photos posted by Kathy - the Chicken Chick on her blog this season. She even has a tutorial to make the Wicked Witch Ruby Slippers above.

So here is a $4 pull of some slightly Halloweenish fat quarters. Some cute cats and rats, spots and wheels of orange. No Halloween chickens I'm afraid though.

The Halloween Quilts I made for the kids are sadly still packed away since we moved last December. I think it is time to pull them out again. I did buy the big pumpkin to carve though.

See you over at Squeak Crafts for the linky party.

  8. Love that green pillow case. You definitely already to go for this weeks festive celebrations!!

  9. I've been off the computer for a while and have been catching up with some of my favorite blogs, so I just read about your plans to carve a pumpkin. For future reference, did you know that chickens LOVE fresh pumpkin? Cut it into chunks so that no one small gets trapped under a large piece, and give them the entire pumpkin. They love the seeds, stringy insides, and fresh walls. I buy several pumpkins in the fall and keep them inside for decoration. When I get tired of them or they start getting mushy, I take them out and smash them in the chicken yard. Try it - it's fun! After about 30 minutes the only thing left is the thin outer rind.
