skin and bones

Skeleton imagery is all the rage this time of year. My son went through a period of fascination with skulls and bones and we have various examples, mainly fashioned out of ceramic, scattered through out the house all year round.

My friend Mary, modeling a macabre apron at the Half Moon Bay Pumpkin festival last Saturday. I was thinking of my blogging friend Rebekah's recent post (http://dontcallmebecky.typepad.com/rebekah/2009/10/day-of-the-dead-embroidery.html) when I took this shot.




Quilt on exhibit at the Pacific International Quilt Festival in Santa Clara. Isn't the detail on this fantastic? She fussy cut skulls from Alexander Henry fabric and I love all the buttons. I wish I had noted the quilter's name - I tried to find it listed in the Program to no avail. I believe it was titled something like "quilting into eternity".

Some miscellaneous pictures from the pumpkin festival. It was unbelievably crowded and consequently very difficult to take pictures.


Someone I know.



The haunted house run by the local theater group was making a killing with their haunted house (no pun intended). Don took the kids in but after only a couple of minutes, Elizabeth ran out crying.

What a fun apron! I love DOTD stuff and cute skeletons. That fussy cut quilt is amazing!
