So, as usual, what follows is a random list of 13 questions, and my answers, all with an Autumn theme!

Ah the fun part of Halloween! The pumpkin carving and in 2021 as in other years I have chosen a theme of some description! But what will it be?

We thought we’d have a bit of a laugh and create a fun playlist for Halloween! We’re big rock and indie fans, but a few others have crept in while we we’ren’t looking… Here is our Halloween party playlist.
This is just a bit of fun! If you have any songs you’d add to the list, certainly let us know in the comments!

As part of a recent online challenge, I try to create an upcycled luminary. Of course I added to the challenge, to make it fit with my Halloween crafting, with a pumpkin theme.
I have seen handmade luminaries created from cans, bottles and jars, but could I make one using a tube?

As it’s Halloween season, it seemed only right to do a bit of seasonal baking! Of course I always do, whether it’s shortbread, or cake! This year I thought I’d make some scary good chocolate cupcakes! Just to do something a little bit different!
The biggest change here was the frosting, which wasn’t remotely complicated!

I wanted to have a go at something cute this year, and so I thought I’d share! I made a trio of Halloween pom-pom pumpkins!

Just for fun, I thought I’d work on stitching a little seasonal something! So I picked up this cute Mouseloft mini Halloween cross-stitch kit. I really love these little kits as they’re quick to stitch, and are a little crafty break, not taking up too much time.
I stitched this little kit while watching some TV one evening.
Do you have any creative favourites this spooky season?

I decided what we needed above our fireplace was some fun Halloween bunting! (Stu has since suggested I make Christmas bunting, so watch this space)! This is a quick and easy sewing project for beginners or experienced sewists!
I chose to decorate using some vinyl and my Cricut Maker. Of course you could cut out letters from paper or fabric and glue or sew them on; this is a pretty versatile project, and of course you can choose fabrics or colours that match your own preferences.

Autumn is totally knitting season, if you ask me! There’s something nice about sitting in front of the tv, with a bit of knitting; and I love a quick little project; just to break up anything bigger I’m working on. So this year I knitted up a quick knit mug cosy, in autumnal orange.
The great thing about these sorts of projects is how fast they are, and you can make a few; whether you want something seasonal, something personalised, or just a bunch of different mug cosies to choose from!
