I really like participating in the yearly Halloween blog hop that Marian of Seams To Be Sew hosts.
She arranges giveaways, too (see the Rafflecopter entries below).
We bloggers are free to post about anything we have made for the Halloween season.
I used fabric scraps again this year to make a wall hanging and decorate a pumpkin.
I had so many orange Halloween fabric scraps
that I thought a wall hanging using strips would be a nice decoration.
I sewed the strips to illustrate Halloween Town on
October 31 with trick-or-treaters having fun
going house to house for candy.
I liked the witch flying high in the sky over the town.
I added tabs for hanging.
The idea for the patchwork pumpkin came from the tutorial on Alisa Burke's blog HERE.
I had a carvable pumpkin that I bought from a craft store last year.
I gathered the supplies
parchment paper to protect my mat
a fine tip paint marker for drawing the stitching threads on the patchwork.
and some leaves to add around the stem
This was fun to make.

And, Marian has a free block each day of the blog hop!

Patchwork Breeze (you are here)

One of the giveaways is a 50% off coupon
for a Calibre cutting mat.
I own 3 of these mats and they are the best!
(I am not an affiliate.)
First of all, my fabric cuts like it is butter when I use the Calibre mats.
The mat arrives (it is only shipped in the U.S.A.) packaged well.
It does not have that "skunky" smell like some of the other cutting mats have.
If the mat has a bit of a bend or bow in it (one of mine got one), you just lay it flat on the floor or a table in the sun and in a few minutes it flattens out.
I have a 14" x 14" rotating mat and it turns so smoothly (comparing it to my "other" rotating mat from a big box store).
So, if you are in the U.S.A., you should enter the Rafflecopter for the Calibre mat.
