Halloween RR Sampler

I worked and finished the two witches and here is a snap of how they turned out -

I am really happy with the way they look!! I have also blocked out the squares for everyone - they are about 50x50 so not too big. I need to do some stuff along the bottom of the piece - House, fence, trees more pumpkins....

I also worked on a couple of exchange pieces and a giftie - but can't show any of that.

I saw some really good movies this weekend starting off with "In Which We Serve" - 1942 - a really great WWII movie of flashbacks. If you get the chance this is a really good movie. Then there was "The Battle of the Bulge"-1965 an interesting and long movie at 2 hours and 50 mins. It seems to me there were too many story lines and it was kind of choppy - Then there was "Destination Tokyo" - 1943 with Cary Grant and John Garfield. A very good submarine movie - but some pretty hokey looking special effects!! Then there was "The Music Man" -1962 with Robert Preston and Shirley Jones - I love this musical and could watch it dozens of times - and I have!! Then last night on TCM was Robert Donat night. They showed two great movies - "Goodbye Mr. Chips" - 1939 for which he won the Oscar. This was followed by "The Count of Monte Cristo" - 1934. What a really great movie!! I had never seen this version and really enjoyed it!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!! Thanks for stopping by!!

Take care,
edgar

Those scary witches are reproducing - will there be 3 in the next picture? They look great against that beautiful fabric. This is going to be a lovely Halloween piece.

Those two witches are kind of like "angels" at the top of your Halloween RR! Okay, maybe that's a bit of a stretch! LOL. It looks great Edgar. Can't wait to see more!

Those are the sweetest witches! The movies you watched brought back fond memories of my dad and I cracking nuts and eating strawberries dipped in chocolate while watching these classics.

Gorgeous finish to your RR setup, Edgar! Love the fabby, and it all sets the perfect Halloween mood.

Looking forward to watching the progress on this, and all of the others. Everyone has picked (and made) such awesome fabric!!
