I decided to make a companion for the ghost pop decoration, I used scraps and quilt as you go method. I had wanted to do it in black & white, but didn't have the right background fabric. A couple of days later, I found the perfect fabric amongst the remnants at Joanne's, so I felt compelled to make another, I just changed the border. I prefer the black&white, what do you think? I finished another scarf, which will go to my DD. I had also noticed that I had not completed any WISP's since August so I finished these three tissue box holders. I can't believe how quickly they went together - what was I waiting for? Made just in time to pack away for next year! I do like how they turned out!
There was a lot of yummy food too! We made witches fingers - Rice Krispy treats, add green food coloring to the melted marshmallows, once it's all mixed together, butter up your hands and mold into fingers. Don't forget to form a "knuckle" in the middle! The fingernails are strawberry fruit rollups, four layers cut into triangles, another easy idea! There were chips and dips, pizza, hamburgers and hot dogs and of course a spooky cake and spider lollipops - 12 & 13 year old's eat a lot! At the end of the night all the girls asked to sleep over, but with hurricane Sandy creeping closer by the hour we had offer a raincheck.
