This is my interruption of the flying monkeys. First is Lola and then Lucie. The coats are made from felt and the hoods are made of black fur. I made the wings of felt with feathers . The tail is a wire armature covered with fur. I think they turned out so cute. I had so much fun figuring out how to make them.
As I was making the costumes Einstein was my model. He was absolutely mortified when I dressed him up, but I had to have a model . I hope that they all have fun trick-or-treating .
I will upload the pictures of my daughters family when she sends them to me. They live in Oregon. Hope you all have a spooky Halloween.

Victorian cards are so charming. I had these in my little stash. You might have guessed by now that my stash is not so small. Oh well, it is fun to collect silly things.
I wanted to use them in my home so that I could enjoy them everyday. I covered small canvases with satin then added the cards and embellished each picture with some of my collected dodads. I think they turned out especially cute. I used tiny bits of laces and frills.
I love how they look in my bathroom with all my other Victorian decorations. .
I love it when I get to use some of my odd charms. When you get going with the embellishments it is hard to stop so I just kept going. I used some of the buttons in my collection. My friends call me the froufrou queen because I love all of this stuff.

Second, I just finished my 50th baby quilt since April. Some are pieced and some are panels that have pieced borders. I have a longarm quilting machine and I am trying to learn how to use it. I am getting better at quilting. It has been fun creating 50 different quilts, but I am glad that I have finished them for now. I know that I will make more. Not sure what I am going to do with them yet. My grand kids will get some and I will probably donate some of them.
I hope you enjoy looking at my work. I loved making them. Enjoy and have a great day.
