It's a Quilted Halloween!

The early hours of Sunday morning were very noisy at our house. We heard a few loud bangs and thuds and went out the next morning to find this...

Witches flying around waiting to come to our Halloween high tea party. One missed and landed on the side on the house while another went head first into the flower pot.

But some did make it inside to hang their hats and party...

Like this one who looks remarkably like Saskia...

And she brought her witch sisters Mary and Nell along...

But oh my! What have they done to poor Mieke??? Must be that ornery Saskia! *grins*

Remember that project I was working on and could not yet share? Here is the treat I made for the ladies for Halloween. I made each a personalized quilted project bag...

Every bag is different and has their name on it...

And that tea dyed fabric is the lining making each one individual also as they all came out differently...

But the ladies came to celebrate Trick or Treat with treats of their own to share with each other...

But wait! It is the witching hour and we had some hungry little witches to feed or they might get up to some trouble...

The recipes of some of my party food will be posted on my food blog BookShelves and StoveTops tomorrow...

And they were entertained with a surprise little quilt show of their own work...

Still some ornery witches like to play tricks. Right Saskia? This spider was left on my bed pillow...

It was great fun to share my countries tradition of Halloween with my quilt group.

I will be late with my Tuesday tallies post this week but will be posting soon...



  1. It looks like you had a lot of fun! What a treat and the bags look great! You put a smile on this old witch's face...


  2. As usual, you went all out for this tea. What fun. The bags were so much work and came out so well (I kept telling you you would finish in time). I bet they all loved them. The treats they brought look good.

  12. Gelukkig heb je je onvoorziene gast op tijd ontdekt, deze spin was vast beter af dan zijn zusjes in de quilt studio.
    Het was een super-middag, dat kun je aan de foto's wel zien, en dan die vrolijke tas, heel apart om die van een heks te krijgen.
    Liefs, Bep.

  13. Het was een heel bijzondere ervaring om oogballen en geroosterde vleermuizen te eten.
    It was a very special experience to have eyeballs and roasted bats as a high tea meal. But they were yummie!
    Love the way you decorated your house with all the scary things!!
