Happy Autumn and Happy 2nd Haunted Humpday!
For this Humpday I wanted to do something decorative around the house,
but when I asked Cinnamon man whether he thought it was too early
for spooky Halloween decor he quickly answered 'yes'...
So I decided to go for something plainly autumnal instead.
Candles, apples, rose hips - on top of a leaf shaped felt place-mat
that our wonderful hostess, Marfi, gifted me earlier this year.
I have begun making my Halloween cards though.
This is really the only time of year I do any scrapping.
I'm not sure who to send cards to yet, but I enjoy the crafting.
In the name of autumn I also wanted to share a super simple DIY:
Many years ago I bought two pretty knitted scarves on super sale,
but wrapped around my neck the ends were still dragging on the ground.
I had to wrap myself up like a mummy and I sweated profusely
any time I wore one of them, so naturally they didn't get much use.
Then the other day I came across a great idea on-line; the scoodie.
Sewing together part of the middle on one side gave the scarves
cute hoodies and also reduced the lengths by about half a meter/yard,
making them the perfect length. Now I look for an excuse to wear them!
Thank you, Marfi, for helping us get into Halloween gear!
