Overnight I mulled over what was wrong with my Halloween block and realised it was all just too kiddie and there was just too much going on. I suppose it was a bit of a Halloween overload.
So, this morning I decided to simplify my design and do something a bit more adult. I dug out my Alexander Henry witchy stitch owl and ghastly forest fabrics…..which I love and just knew would be perfect for what I wanted. I did still keep the black spiderweb fabric from Riley Blake Boo! To You! for the roof because I love that too.
What do you think? I think it is much better. It is much simpler and focuses on the fabrics……it is basically a suburban detached house that has been transported into a Halloween scene!
