Finished for Friday: Which Witch's Boot?

Yay! Doing my happy dance today because I got my Halloween project finished. Before Halloween even.

The original pattern is by Crabapple Hill.   The inner border is supposed to be a stripe, but I couldn't find one I liked in my stash so I used jumbo ric rac instead.  Because ric rac cures everything.  The tinting was done with crayons and I used Cosmo floss for the first time for the embroidery.  Lovely stuff.

In a classic move quilters everywhere will appreciate, I managed to run out of my orange thread with only about 4 inches of the border left to quilt.  Had to stop everything and run out to the quilt shop.  Luckily they had the color I needed.

Now I can sit back and enjoy the next few days until Halloween.  After I make popcorn balls, help the kids with costumes, set up a party for the teenagers...

What have you been up to this week?  Link up and share.  Thanks for stopping by!
