Happy October to you!

Hey...It's October already!
Time flies and I love this month so much!
There is always so much going on around here...from the WSQ Quilt show... to Halloween.... to going to all the farms for apples and pumpkin donuts... visitors.. my husband's birthday....and it goes on and on!
Are you busy too?

and a cool desktop calendar for you computer.
I designed these pumpkin scarecrows from drawings I made and then illustrated them. 
I actually do a ton of work on the computer.
I really love every minute of it.
**********************************************
Do you love to color? Do you need a small calendar in your office or home?

I colored up some of them to show you how cute they are!
I have mine by my computer...small enough to not take over the whole space.

It is a PDF Instant Download(file), That I created. I drew and designed these. 12 months come on 3 different pages...just download instantly, print on white cardstock or regular paper....and cut out.

Each one fits the theme of the month!
Each month measures: 3 15/16" x 5". 
This is Great for anyone who loves to color! They look great hanging on small clips or on a clipboard. The kids could color these and give them to their grandparents too.

This is how they look uncolored.
**Plus makes a great stocking stuffer (just print and cut out...tie them together with a box of crayons...so easy and inexpensive). 

******This cannot be sold as a file or as a calendar....gift giving only! ******

And on another note...you could use the drawings for embroidery (no embroidery instructions are given however).

I hope you have a wonderful start to this October!

Halloween treat boxes, pins & ornaments

Oh man...it's been a busy week!
I have my BRAND NEW pattern....

Halloween is full of tricks and TREATS....

Stitch up the spookiest treat boxes ever... they are made from wool or felt, with easy whip stitching and embroidery. Each design fits on little paper mache boxes (those really inexpensive boxes at all the craft stores). 

***They are also lovely made into wearable pins, magnets or as ornaments. 
I love the majestic quality of crows.
There is a black crow, Spooky witch silhouette, Smiling Jack, Happy cat, Ghost, Skull, Acorns, bat, and 3 pumpkins with a cute cat.

I kept eating the candy corn... even though I was telling myself to not!

Finished designs measure: 
from 4" x 4" or 5" x 3 1/2" ...
to 2 1/4" x 3" or 2 1/2" x 2 1/2"
**These finished Halloween designs would also look great as package ties, on the front of a basket or jar, pincushions (made as the pin and then stuffed with polyfil stuffing or crushed walnut shells), or hanging on a knob or hook.

Fill the boxes with treats like candy corn, chocolates, or little toys. 
The boxes make great gifts and friendship swaps.

Here they are as pins and magnets.
plus they use up scraps!

I also made some new fun sayings for my daughter Selina's mini hoop pendant blanks.
There is: Ugh, Meh, Nope, Thug life, WTF, As if, I can't even, Sorry not sorry, What ever, Not today Satan, me too! and YOLO.

This is what her mini hoops look like, and you get the "Hello" patterns plus how to use them. 

I love this saying!
I thought thug life was fun for the young...with a sweet rose.

"As if" .... reminds me of the movie clueless....one of my favorites.
Plus there is "Nope"...lol.
I had alot of fun with these!
These sew up quick too!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

The new Somerset Holiday magazine is out....

Yay!
My French country Christmas ornaments.
The article tells my techniques and basic instructions....but not the actual pattern....you can get it in my etsy shop.
The magazine is really beautiful....full of good ideas and lots of projects. 

Here the are....9 different designs....that are really easy to do.
They have a soft frosty look!

Halloween boo crew...& Dracula

It's time for the Halloween Boo Crew....
STICKERS!
The Halloween Boo crew stickers are designed by me, Shirley Hudson of Hudson's Holidays. There are 2 sheets of stickers and each sheet is 4 3/4" x 6 1/8". 
The Boo crew has a witch, Frankenstein monster, owl, cat, bat, scarecrow, pumpkins, flowers, ghost, spider, skull, leaves, candy corn, moon and stars. 

These sweet stickers are fun for your calendar, party invitations, planners, journal, snail mail, crafting, and kids love them! These are not scary, just cute!

I am using them in my planner here
Sweet characters!

I made a matching fabric...available in my spoonflower shop

I made a second set of stickers...which are alittle different.

I love franky

There are so many uses.

They have fun sayings: Monster mash, cutest pumpkin in the patch, welcome autumn, I'm bats over you, boo, pumpkin spice is nice, Halloween hag, just call me wicked, scarecrow for hire, and welcome to our web.

I can't wait for the first day of autumn.

They look cute on tags too

I have finished my final Halloween doll in the collection!
It is in my etsy shop ....as an instant download.....and on my website for Printed/mailed patterns.

Stitch up the sweetest Dracula... perfect for your Halloween decor or for your kids to play with. He is carrying his coffin treat container and has his own mini quilt. This is the 5th of a series of Halloween dolls... embroider up the whole collection! He has a family crest on his cape and a little spider friend.

You can cover him up in his own quilt.

Sweet mini quilt...which would also make a great mug rug or shelf mat.

These are all the dolls in the collection.
In my etsy shop I have a great deal for all five...check it out!

Kids love them 
Each has a different quilt design.
