What to do……with this……

I am that person that has to be doing something at all times. If I sit down to watch the news or something else on TV, my hands must be occupied. If not, I will be eating something (which I certainly do not need to do) or I might fall asleep.
I have done some piecing by hands, but I find that it winds up being a lot of the same thing, so I find embroidery keeps my attention a little better. Since, I really like to quilt, I have to find ways to incorporate my embroidery into quilts.

Currently, I have this Halloween picture that I need to do something with. If I remember correctly, this was a picture from a coloring book (maybe. Honestly, I am not sure). I do remember that it took a fair amount of time to do this picture.

The problem I have is that now I am not sure what to do with it. I am a practical person by nature, so I do like things that I can use. So, maybe a Table Topper? The only issue is that it a picture that can only really be seen from one direction, and it would end up getting washed a lot (not sure if that matters or not). I already have one for hanging on the door, so I don’t really need another wall hanging….  It is also about 16″ x 18″ which is fairly large.

So, I am looking for ideas, if anyone has one. I have all my Halloween fabric out and am just staring at it with that blank look. Thanks.

Happy Quilting

Happy Sewing

  1. This is really darling! I was going to say a pillow too! I have a few seasonal pillows that I like to bring out when decorating for a holiday. You could also maybe turn it into a trick or treat bag for a loved one…or yourself…no judgement!

  2. I love tabletoppers, so that is my vote! And there wouldn’t be a need to wash it too often, just a quick shake out or a tumble in the dryer. As for it facing one direction, just lay it facing the direction that faces you the most.


  3. I love this hand work! How about framing it? Check out the Salvation Army or the Dollar Store for a cheap frame, spray paint it black, add some glitter and hang it by your front door.


  4. And late to the party, I might suggest using it in an apron – maybe not one that you use, but that hangs on the door at the appropriate season. =) Though I would probably use it for a pillow myself, or a little wall hanging. I don’t have walls covered with a lot of things, but I have a rotating spot where I hang quilts as I feel the need to change them. It could also be the center of a Halloween lap quilt for use on chilly October nights. =)


  5. Maybe use it as the front panel for a trick or treat bag if you have a young person in the house. Or a book bag if you go to the library as often as I do…
