Just a little Halloween Humor...

...very little, in fact. In a former life I created rubber stamp art. Challenges are not unique to the quilting world, and one year (1994, to be exact) I took on a challenge to create a scene using the witch stamp, "Mordred" with her book of spells. I don't like anything scary or creepy and don't even include witches in my Halloween decor, so I tried to inject humor into my series, which I called "The Misadventures of Mordred". So here it is for your viewing pleasure (or not) on this Halloween Day. (You may need to click the pictures to be able to read the dialogue.)




In spite of the levity of this post, my prayers are with those who have suffered the wrath of Sandy--including my niece and her family in Connecticut.
Have a safe Halloween!

  4. I used to do stamp art as well...still trying to figure out what to do with all the left over supplies. I would like to keep just a tiny bit of what I have (housemouse and "watercolor" stamps) but haven't decided how to sell the rest...

  5. No witches or Bats for me either, but I have been known to don the HAT. I'll be doing the T &T solo tonight. DH is working Late again! Hope the victims of Hurricane Sandy can find relief. The pics on TV are heart- breaking.

  7. Cute - cute - cute!
    Especially the one about Elvis.
    I was passing out newsletters today and one house has a sign on the door that reads "Wicked Witch's House". I don't like the wicked part of Halloween.

  8. As someone else who doesn't celebrate Halloween either (just something we've never really done over here) I understand your sentiment and love your little gems of humour!
