Halloween Countdown: creepy projects for crafters & hobbyists. (Monster models, knitting, cross stitch, paper cutting & more.)Posted: August 22, 2014
Today, August 22nd, is just 10 Fridays before Halloween.
Show your love of Halloween and drive your friends crazy by sharing the above image on your social media sites this week.
The signs of the season are starting to appear! Yesterday, I noticed a Halloween issue of a women’s magazine on a grocery store rack and today I bought a bag of prominently displayed candy corn at Target 🙂
I stayed up waaaay too late last night, updating this week’s countdown post. I got sucked into learning more about monster models in particular. There’s a whole new section about “Monster Scenes” and the controversy surrounding them when they were first released. (Hint: they were banned in the USA, due to their sexual and sadistic flare.)
I’ve added some fresh knitting & cross stitch patterns for the season. I’ve also double-checked all the existing links, and redirected or modified as necessary, so that all the information is accurate as of today.
to browse some options, or to be inspired to find a new hobby, or pick up one that you’ve set aside in the summer.
To see my overall plans for the 2014 season,
