I've been busy in my sewing room lately. After putting the first border and part of the second border on Phires Compass, I set that aside to play with some Halloween fabric.
My BFF online quilty buddy, Pat at Life in the Scrapatch, made this fun spider web mat a few years ago.
She has all the instructions here for you, and there is still plenty of time to make it this year.
I have been wanting to make it, but I don't do a lot of decorating for Halloween. This year though, I thought it would make a fun mug rug for a friend. So I mini-ized it! It finishes at about 11" from point to point.
Mine is not nearly as good looking as Pat's. But I think it still turned out pretty cute.
I embroidered the little spider in the middle.
I've also been making Bear Paw blocks. Twenty of them for a swap and a few for me to keep.
These are about done, then I can get back to Phire's Compass.
I've been enjoying the lovely Fall weather we were having. The temps have gone back up again for a bit, I can't wait for the first rain!
