Jack O' Lantern Hauntings

Working on my new series of 
Jack O' Lantern Hauntings
for our Halloween "Trick or Treaters" to enjoy.
Since it is again 100+ degrees out doors, 
I think being inside with the AC,
 cranked up for another day is a good thing.

I have two completed punch needle pillow/tucks, 
with another close to being finished and 
about 3 more sketches to prepare
for the hoop and punch needle. 
I have given them all names.
The tall pumpkin is "A Frightful JOL",
and the next one is "A Winkin' JOL"
both of these friendly fellows will be in #1 Packet.
The pumpkin still in the hoop is "A Creepy JOL"
getting ready for JOL Haunting #2 Packet.
They will be offered in pairs as shown.
Packet #1 will ready by Tuesday Wednesday Friday, 
the first 2nd 4th of August.
 This series, Jack O' Lantern Hauntings will include,
 3 sets of packets with 2 designs in each.
Available on my
Villagefolkart Picturetrail...
here you will be able 
to find the picture of the painting I used for inspiration 
listed under, 'My Paintings'.

They have a cotton homespun backing and I
stuffed these with real 100% shredded cotton balls. 
These are really cute all grouped together
 and will be easy to finish 
and have ready for Halloween night 
and all the little
"Trick or Treaters".

Hope you are all Kool with 'Folk Art Hugs'.
Peace & Blessings for ALL,

Am really looking forward to it..

What fun JOLs!
When will it finally cool down for you or will August be just as hot?
Can you believe it is the end of July? I sure can't!!!

Hi Lauren, it generally gets cooler towards the end of September or October. No telling with this month long heat wave. Thanks for visiting and commenting too. Enjoy the week, with Peace, Barb

Hi Barb,
These are just "Spooktacular" my friend!!! We can really get a lot done when we are tucked away in the AC!!! It will be 107 today, but that is a lot better than the upper teens we kept having!! Fall IS coming, but oh so slowly for us!!
Enjoy your creative time!!
Heart Hugs~

Ohhhhh, you are so sweet. Yes, they are fun and I have to get the other three done up before it is too late. This heat has really taken its toll on me. I am out walking with hubs by 6:00a.m. for at least an hour. But I move in slower motion, more than what is normal, for most of the day. No signs of fall here. Can't wait for my favorite time of year. Anyways, enjoy the rest of the week, inside where it is kool. Watching for your next creative presentation... They are always inspiring.
Folk Art Hugs with Peace for all,
