Octoberfest 2014

I love Autumn, it holds so many wonders and treats. The beautiful leaf colours, walks on frosty mornings followed by mugs of hot chocolate in front of a log fire.
Halloween and Guy Fawkes night.

I had a little problem with some of my plans this year, that was all of my crafting bits were boxed up and waiting to be put into my new shed!
This was just one box which was pulled from the crazy stacks of boxes at the weekend.
 so that i could make a little something that had been in my mind for a while.

And here is the resulting little project

I have made this style of brooch before and enjoy the process.
This time i added a hand painted skull to add a little Dia del los muertos vibe.

I spent a lovely afternoon needle felting a pumpkin and then got carried away and made a whole troop of cute toadstools and a weenie little creature which i have not named yet.

So this is my little slice of Autumnal goodies with lots more in the making for Halloween, one of my favourite celebrations of the year.
Hope you enjoyed your visit.
