Happy Halloween

Our jolly pumpkins lighting up the doorway!

Chalcot Road seems to be the centre for all trick or treating in NW1! In an hour and a half we got thru 400 sweets! but it was lovely to see everyone in their costumes and especially well done for all of you ho made your own costumes. Next year I promise to come up with even more ideas!

I was commissioned to design a fun but not too frightening bunting for halloween and I am delighted with the result. I decided to use orange 3mm check and design 6 different shapes for each flag co-ordinating the felt colours. The bat, the ghost, the black cat, the pumpkin, the witches hat with green hair and the moon with a rather sinister dark grey cloud all add to the halloween spirit without scaring any member of the family too much! there is lots of work in it but once made it can come out again every year. This design with its instructions and materials will be available next year in the shop ready for next halloween!
