Another Mosaic, another secret swap!  This time it's a Halloween themed swap hosted by Martha at MCSQRD.  I've been assigned my partner and I can't wait to get started.  I know what I'm going to make already and I have Halloween fabric in mind so Happy Shopping time!

To help out our swap partner we have been asked what our favourite things about Halloween are.  Growing up in Ireland in the 70's (eeks I am that old!!) we tended to make our own costumes.  In school in between learning about the druids and old Irish fairy tales we'd make our own witches hats and masks.  Dressing up tended to be something easy like a ghost, mummy or a witch (hats were a doddle to make, almost everyone had a broomstick back then for some reason and you could get a cape from a black plastic bag in a heatbeat!)  You didn't really see pumpkins in the supermarket much so every now and then we'd have a lantern made from a turnip.  If you've ever tried carving a lantern out of a turnip then you'll think pumpkins are the best things ever too!  That probably explains why I have a lot of them in my mosaic above and possibly why I like the colour orange so much.  So favourite things about Halloween - homemade & orange.  Mind you I'm quite fond of purple and lime green too!
