Halloween Completed

I managed to get the table runner and place mats that I started last week, ready in time for my book group meeting last night.
Here is what they look like on the table.

 There is a bit of an overlap on the 2 pictures, since I couldn't get the whole table in at once.

The table runner I made last week, now has a binding. The blocks I started last week, are now place mats.

I really like how the caution tape type binding worked out. I also like how well it goes with my teapot.

There is a pocket in the place mat, for the cutlery and napkin, but I didn't use them last night, just set the food out on them. You can see the remaining chocolate in this picture. I also served the cookies from yesterday's blog.

I don't normally decorate for Halloween (I don't even have a Jack - o - lantern) but I found making these very entertaining. Now I have some friends who want to make a set for Christmas, so I am thinking of doing a tutorial.

Happy Halloween!


  1. Seasonal table stuff is a great addition to the decor. Nice job!

  2. Adorable! I don't go in much for seasonal decorations, but this set could change my mind......

  3. Those cats crack me up, looks fun.

  4. Wonderful placemats and runner! and i love those witches fingers too, my cousin makes those every year!
